Visual "Inception" won the Oscar for visual effects at the 83rd Academy Awards on Sunday night.

Paul Franklin, Chris Corbould, Andrew Lockley and Peter Bebb received the award for their work on Christopher Nolan's surreal, complex thriller about dream invasion. The film dominated the Visual Effects Society's awards earlier this month. The film also earned a BAFTA Award.

"Inception" was competing against "Alice in Wonderland," "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows -- Part I," "Hereafter "and "Iron Man 2."

The Academy Awards are taking place at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood and are being televised live on ABC. We'll carry all the breaking news and reaction here on Awards Tracker.
