Congrats to all you super stellar pixel pushers! Keep showing the world all that television vfx can be.

The tight timelines, the workload and the audience's continually growing expectations makes this job one of the hardest in the industry. Due to the time limit restrictions of broadcast television, we never get to know the names (or see them onscreen) of the full teams that make our favorite shows happen, making this job one of the most thankless in the industry.

To the shows, congrats.
To the unsung heroes who pull it off, week after week :beer:

9 statues for dozens of people...

I'm referring more to the dozens, the grunts who go unnamed and uncredited, show after show. The army that helped put those guys and gals on the lists posted above.

(That's not to say those names above don't deserve the credit or the nomination... )
