Academy celebrates night of the nerds'

BEVERLY HILLS, California Two weeks before the glamour of the Oscars, the film academy hosted its annual 'night of the nerds' honoring software engineers, digital projection innovators and a former sound guy for Frank Zappa and the Kinks who helped modernize movie audio.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recognized 58 men and one woman for their behind-the-scenes science and technical work, including creation of a camera rig used in 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' and development of software that forms the realistic hair seen in 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.'
