BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) - Twenty computer geeks accepts honors for their work at the first Academy Awards presentations of the year.
The award was for their work on particle flow simulation technology - stuff that makes water scenes in the movies look more realistic.
The scientific and technical awards last night was as charmingly unglamorous as ever.
A magician provided the pre-meal entertainment while Jessica Alba showed up to present the awards.
Most winners received certificates, plaques or a medallion; only two actual Oscars were handed out.
