“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” “The Boxtrolls” and “Big Hero 6” each have five nominations for Wednesday night’s 13th annual Visual Effects Society Awards, while “Interstellar” and “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” have four.

“Dawn of the Planet of the Apes,” “Interstellar” and “The Hobbit” will compete for the honor for outstanding effects in an effects-driven live action film, along with “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Maleficent” and “X- Men: Days of Future Past.”

“Big Hero 6” and the “The Boxtrolls” will compete for outstanding animation in a film, with “How to Train Your Dragon 2,” “Rio 2” and “The Lego Movie.”

Nominated for outstanding supporting visual effects in a live-action film are “Birdman,” “Divergent,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “The Imitation Game” and “Unbroken.”

The VES awards will be presented at the Beverly Hilton.

During the ceremony, director J.J. Abrams will be presented with the society’s Visionary Award. The organization had planned to present Ridley Scott with a lifetime achievement award, but the presentation was postponed due to a change in Scott’s production schedule.
