Nominated for: Best Feature

Jeremy Dawson began his continuing association with Wes Anderson when he served as visual effects supervisor on The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou.

The latter received Academy Award® nominations for Best Animated Feature and for Alexandre Desplat’s original score, among other honors.

He started in the film industry by designing the title sequence for Darren Aronofsky’s acclaimed debut feature Pi.

He has twice been nominated for the Visual Effects Society (VES) Award, with his colleagues from Frida and The Fountain.
