Academy Award for Best Technical Achievement
(for the design and implementation of the Maya Fluid Effects system)


Academy Award for Best Technical Achievement
(For the original concept (Catmull) and the scientific and practical implementation (DeRose/Stam) of subdivision surfaces as a modeling technique in motion picture production. Subdivision surfaces have become a preferred modeling primitive for many types of motion picture computer graphics.)
