Watch This Supercut Of Every Special Effects Oscar Winner From 1927 To 2016

Which film is your favorite?

The Oscars are quickly approaching and to help us get ready YouTube channel Burger Fiction has created a supercut of the "Best Visual Effects" Oscar winners from 1927 to 2016. In the past, the channel has entertained us with supercuts of action film one-liners, horror films' scary scenes, and a mash-up of movie phone calls

The "Best Visual Effects" supercut reminds us of so many films that pushed boundaries and innovated while telling their stories. It features winners such as 2001: A Space OdysseyStar Wars, Forrest GumpThe MatrixThe Lord of the Rings, The Curious Case of Benjamin ButtonInception, and Ex Machina

"For the 1927/28 Academy awards, the award was for engineering effects," the video's description reads. "There was no award again until 1938 where it was called a special award "for outstanding achievement in creating special photographic and sound effects. The very next year the award was combined with sound effects and called the Award for Special Effects. It wasn't until 1963 that the award became the Award for Best Visual Effects (which it is still called today). It was given every year from 1963 to present, with the exception of 1973."
