Blizzard Entertainment won the 10th Annual VES Awards celebrated at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California.

The Visual Effects Society recognizes outstanding visual effects artistry in 23 categories of film, animation, television, commercials, special venues, and video games.

Outstanding Visual Effects in an Animated Commercial or Video Game Trailer

Update: Digging around online, Nick Carpenter appears in a photo near Marvel Comics-fame Stan Lee and Mark Webb.

A very short video shows the moment when Diablo III: Black Soulstone cinematic is announced as the winner of the award.
