Visual effects, or VFX, has undoubtedly made leaps and bounds since the early days of cinema, and one apt barometer for the state of the industry has been the winner of the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects every year. The first recognition of the industry’s role in Oscars history was in 1927, when an award was presented for engineering effects, but this was a one-off until 1938, where the special award for “outstanding achievement in creating special photographic and sound effects” was instated. The Award for Special Effects remained unchanged until 1963, when it was renamed the Award for Best Visual Effects, which it has been called since.

This mashup by Burger Fiction is a perfect representation of the technological advances made over the past century, where the cutting edge was first defined by double exposures and elaborate sets, to stop motion, and eventually CGI-constructed environments with a polygon count in the hundreds of millions. Once you’re done watching the above, head over here for a mashup of this year’s Best Picture nominees.
