The Magic Behind 11 Years of Oscar-Worthy Visual Effects

The Oscar nominations are in — and, for the 11th year in a row, NVIDIA Quadro GPUs are behind every movie nominated for Best Visual Effects.
The five VFX contenders for the 91st annual Academy Awards, set for Sunday, Feb. 24, are:

  • Avengers: Infinity War
  • Christopher Robin
  • First Man
  • Ready Player One
  • Solo: A Star Wars Story

For more than a decade, NVIDIA has been powering some of the most captivating visual effects in film. If you were wowed by the Bengal tiger in a life raft in Life of Pi, by Sandra Bullock’s rescue from deep space in Gravity or the neo-noir realm of Blade Runner 2049, you can thank Quadro.
