We’re just over a month away from the 86th Academy Awards, so it’s about time we all get caught up on the winners from the past 85 years. If scrolling through countless Wikipedia pages doesn’t sound like a fun way to accomplish this task, it might be worth checking out Nelson Carvajal’s compilation video of every Visual Effects Oscar since the category was introduced in 1977.

Check out all the winners below, along with the nominees that will fight for the top spot in 2014.
