Franco: ‘Oscars should recognize Serkis’

December 30, 2011 at 8:25 pm by xoanon  - 

From waaytv.com James Franco has urged Academy Awards voters to seriously consider his Rise of the Planet Apes co-star Andy Serkis for a Best Actor prize. Serkis shot to fame when he was transformed into the creepy Gollum in the Lord of The Rings trilogy and he has since given King Kong and Planet of The Apes’ Caesar a face – and Franco insists his pioneering work will revolutionize Hollywood. The 127 Hours star says, “To me, it seems like such a shame that Andy doesn’t get recognized now, because this is the moment when he’s really broken through… He’s doing it (motion picture) better than anyone else on the planet… What he does is real acting.”

    he definately should win an oscar, and he should have won for Gollum

    This is what I’ve been saying for a long time!

    If The Hobbit came out this year, he would definitely be nominated for one of his movies. I can’t see Gollum having that much screen time for a nomination next year, but maybe with all the hype this year.

    Does anyone notice the resemblance between the pic of Andy Serkis in this story and the Hildebrandt Brothers painting of Gollum? Do an image search and see for yourself.
