The Foundry's Mari, Tweak's RV, and Clairmont Camera's Squishy Lens are all on this year's list of achievements that are under consideration for awards from the Scientific and Technical Awards Committee of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. (That's the Air Wall from Aircover Inflatables at the top of this page.) 

The Academy publishes the list in August every year so that observers have time to raise any objections based on assertions that the same technology had been developed earlier and/or done better. Claims of prior art or notification of the existence of similar devices should be submitted on the Academy's website. Additional entries may also be submitted through Tuesday,September 1. 

The Academy's Scientific and Technical Awards Committee will meet in early December to finalize its recommendations to the Academy's Board of Governors, which makes the final decisions. The awards themselves will be presented on Saturday, February 13, 2015.

Here's the list released by the Academy, along with helpful links for more info whenever we could find them:
