Oscar Movies: Blade Runner (1982)

Blade Runner was nominated for two Oscars: Art Direction-Set Decoration to Lawrence G. Paul, David Snyder, and Linda DeScenna; and Visual Effects to Douglas Trumbull, Richard Yuricich, and David Dryer.

Rather shockingly, the Art Direction went to Attenborough's pedestrian-looking biopicture “Gandhi” (a result of the block vote/), and the Visual Effects Oscar to Spielberg's “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial.”
