The Hobbit wins ONE VES award - Gravity takes the rest Can't Post

In what should dim fans expectations of The Hobbit beating Gravity for Best Visual Effects at this years Oscars - Gravity just cleaned up at the VES awards (Visual Effects Society) and only managed to win in one category: Smaug winning best computer generated character in a live action film over Gravity's Ryan.

As someone who loved both movies it's hard not to admit that Gravity SHOULD be winning - but it makes it hard for me knowing that The Hobbit will go home without the Academy Award that it surely would have won any other year.

"Tim... Canterbury... Canterbury Tales... Chaucer... Shakespeare."
