BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — The scientists and inventors who make big-screen superheroes and spectacular explosions possible have their own Oscar ceremony.

Actors Kristen Bell and Michael B. Jordan hosted the film academy's annual Scientific and Technical Awards Saturday at the Beverly Hills Hotel, recognizing more than 50 of the most creative men in the movie business.

Two Oscar statuettes were presented among the night's 21 awards: one to Peter W. Anderson for his contributions to 3-D technology, and one in honor of the countless owners and operators of film-processing labs over the past century. "The Dark Knight" writer-director Christopher Nolan accepted the film lab Oscar, which will be on permanent display at the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures in Los Angeles when it opens in 2017.
