At Sunday’s Academy Awards, many of the nominees are films that were made available in 3D. In fact, we could probably be pretty safe in saying that more 3D movies will win Oscars this year than any previous year. And we’re not the only ones who are noticing this. Wolfgang Puck, who is the official chef at the Governors Ball (the biggest after-show party for award show attendees), created what he calls a “3D dessert.”
We know what you’re thinking: what the heck is a 3D dessert? We’re not even sure ourselves, but apparently if you look at the confection while wearing a pair of 3D glasses, it has the illusion of jumping out at you. That’s what Puck says at least. And yes, people who attend the Governors Ball will receive a pair of 3D glasses. Do you need any other affirmation that 3D has taken over Hollywood?
Interestingly enough, while there are certainly enough 3D movies on the Oscar ballot, some of the top nominees like The Descendants and The Artist were notably not shot in 3D. In fact, The Artist is a throwback to very low-tech Hollywood flicks. Nevertheless, there’s no mistaking that 3D is an important part of the industry, and if you don’t believe me, check out the man who engineered 3D desserts, at PopSugar.
