Framestore Wins Oscar in Best VFX for Blade Runner 2049
Framestore is proud to announce that the studio has been awarded the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects at the 90th Academy Awards, for its work on Denis Villeneuve’s Blade Runner 2049.

Framestore’s VFX Supervisor Rich Hoover accepted the Oscar alongside John Nelson, Gerd Nefzer and Paul Lambert.

This is the third Academy Award win for Framestore, having previously won in 2014 with Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity and 2008 for The Golden Compass. The news follows success at the BAFTAs last month, where Blade Runner 2049 won the Special Visual Effects award.


Rich led a team of over 175 artists in Framestore’s Montréal studio, crafting almost 300 shots for the final picture, which built on extensive concept and pre-production work by Framestore’s Art Department.

The creative studio’s remit spanned large-scale CG environment builds and large CG sequences, from the creation of the hologram character ‘Joi’ to the asset-packed Trash Mesa and the striking, post-apocalyptic Las Vegas. See the full breakdown of Framestore’s work in the film below.

Fiona Walkinshaw and Matt Fox, Global Joint MDs of Film, Framestore:

'Collaborating with Denis Villeneuve on Blade Runner 2049 was a very rewarding experience for all of our artists; he is a unique and exciting filmmaker and we are incredibly proud to have played a part in realising his vision. We offer our many congratulations to Rich and the team for this outstanding visual achievement. This is a fantastic way to begin an exciting year for Framestore.’
