“Gravity” (Warner Bros.) swept several categories including: best “Live Action 3D Feature,” best “Stereography – Live Action,” best “3D Scene of the Year,” and best “2D to 3D Conversion.” Two of the Society’s Lumiere™ statuettes were presented to “Frozen” (Walt Disney Animation Studios) for best “Animated 3D Feature” and best “Stereography – Animation.”

“Metallica Through the Never” (Picturehouse Entertainment) won for best “Motion Picture Documentary.” “Get a Horse” (Walt Disney Animation Studios) was honored as this year’s best “Short-Subject Movie.” “Stalingrad” (Columbia Pictures) received the Society’s 2014 Jury Prize for “Outstanding 3D Artistic Achievement.”

DreamWorks Animation (DWA) Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Katzenberg received the Society’s Harold Lloyd Filmmaker Award, which was presented by Suzanne Lloyd and Society Co-chairman Tom Cosgrove, CEO of 3net Studios.

Pixar Animation was honored with the Sir Charles Wheatstone Award for education and distinguished achievement in 3D storytelling. Directors, producers, and production executives were in attendance from Hollywood and more than a dozen countries including: China, Taiwan, Japan, the U.K., the E.U., and Canada.

The Society’s Century Award was presented to Steve Schklair, Founder and CEO of 3ality Technica, whose camera systems have been used for films including: “The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug,” “The Great Gatsby,” and “U2 3D in Concert.”

“It is clear from these winners that 3D is maturing as an art form,” said Society Awards Chairman Buzz Hays. “From live action, to animated, to concert movies, to documentaries, today’s audiences are experiencing 3D in astounding and exciting new productions like never before,” he commented.

In two new “Advanced Imaging” categories, the Society presented Lumiere statuettes to “Space: Unraveling the Cosmos” (3net Studios) for “4K Documentary” and “Breaking Bad” (AMC) for “4K Entertainment.”

“Many of tonight’s honorees are now bound for the Academy Awards, which indicates just how far 3D as an art form has come,” said Society President Jim Chabin. “Ultra-High Def and 4K programming is fast becoming a new standard as we move into the next decade. ‘Breaking Bad’ and ‘Space: Unraveling the Cosmos’ boldly embraced this new digital technology. The enhanced quality of their productions using 4K was brilliant,” added Chabin.

In the category of Live Event, Taiwanese rock band Mayday won for its 3D concert movie “Mayday Nowhere” (B’in Music). The Japanese film “Space Pirate Captain Harlock” (Qtech) was awarded best “International Animated Feature.” “Mr. Hublot” (Zeilt Productions) was awarded a Lumiere for best “International Animated Short.” The stop motion movie “Present for You” (PLUS heads) won the best “International Live Action Feature.” The award for best “Live Action Short” went to Kafard Films for “Lapse of Time.” The best “International Entertainment – Music” Lumiere went to “Des Roar” (3D International Media Partners).
