The Academy Award for Best Visual Effects recognizes the achievements of two key departments: special effects, and visual effects. The special effects department is responsible for practical on-set spectacle such as fire and pyrotechnics, water, and atmospherics, and moving set pieces. The visual effects department is primarily responsible for elements that cannot be physically realized, including animated characters, environments, and simulation effects.
