“This award is for all the talented people who contributed to the effects in this film,” Jackson said in a statement to THR. “That includes people not only from VFX and SFX, but also from stunts and the art department.” “I’d like to express my gratitude to all of the teams who made the transition to working from home so seamless and who continued to produce excellent work on this incredible project.”
