The 1614 Entertainment team, along with our fellow partners, are thrilled and honored to announce that Blade Runner 2049 won 2 Academy Awards. Receiving Oscars for Achievement in Visual Effects and Best Cinematography.
Within the Visual Effects category, it was an honor to stand beside power house films such as Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Kong: Skull Island, War for the Planet of the Apes and Star Wars: The Last Jedi. In the Cinematography category, we were privileged to be nominated along side Darkest Hour, Dunkirk, Mudbound, and The Shape of Water.
In addition to these tremendous and incredible wins, the film was nominated for Best Production Design, Best Sound Mixing, and Best Sound Editing.
Described by the Verge as a “visual feast of a film”, the entire cast, crew, and team is overwhelmed with appreciation for these celebrated recognitions. Working on a sequel to the legendary 1982 Blade Runner, we wanted to bring new and returning fans of the film back into the mystifying dystopian future with an artistic and visually masterful manner. Everyone involved in this film, is honored to be recognized for these achievements.
