J.J. Abrams received an award at the 13th Annual Visual Effects Society Awards yesterday.
Presenting the award to Abrams was Zoë Saldana , in her first public appearance since the birth of her twins.
The VES Awards “recognize and honor the most outstanding visual effects work of the year and honors the artists who created them.”
Abrams received the Visionary Award. The Visionary Award “recognizes an individual who has uniquely and consistently employed the art and science of visual effects to foster imagination and ignite future discoveries by way of artistry, invention and groundbreaking work.”
Saldana praised Abrams, saying, “This man has truly done many things, but one thing he did no man has done before: He gave Spock a girlfriend. And then he gave me a job too.”
