Remember VFX HQ? That Visual Effects Headquarters that's now an archive?

"Every article is still online and searchable. For up-to-date info on the author's work and current projects, visit Todd Vaziri's home page, or read his blog, FXRant at fxrant.blogspot.com."

Todd has updated it... well sort of, he has updated the Academy Awards section of Visual Effects Headquarters that lists every visual effects Oscar winner and nominee since 1939.
