The "Most Frames Per Second Incredibly Special Effects Award" Goes to Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk

The Oscars recognizes the achievements of actors or directors. There are even a few Oscars for effects, production, and the like, but the men and women responsible for stunning special effects are not recognized as they should. That's why Popular Mechanics, for the third year in a row, is recognizing the greatest visual effects in film. Among the awards, we pinpointed the "Most Frames Per Second Incredibly Special Effects Award" .

Most movies are shot at 24 frames per second (fps): Each second, 24 images flash on the screen—just enough to make us see motion. Anything higher than 24 makes some people feel sick, but director Ang Lee wanted a smooth, immersive experience. So he shot Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk at 120.
