LOS ANGELES (AP) - Visual effects supervisor Bill Taylor is being honored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

The academy says Taylor will be awarded the John A. Bonner Medal of Commendation at the Scientific and Technical Awards banquet Feb. 9 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The John A. Bonner Medal is named in honor of the late director of special projects at Warner Hollywood Studios. It's awarded for outstanding service and dedication in upholding the high standards of the motion picture academy.

Taylor's visual effects credits include such films as "Lawless," "Public Enemies," "Milk" and "Bruce Almighty."
