After yesterday’s release of the 2012 Oscar nominations, many felt that actor Andy Serkis was snubbed. His proponents feel that Serkis’ role in Rise of the Planet of the Apes was unjustly passed over by Academy members who don’t fully understand the nuance involved in a motion capture performance. However, some critics maintain that motion-capture roles should not be placed in the same category with traditional performances due to the heavy reliance on CGI technology.
I get it. It comes with the territory. You can’t play a convincing ape without acting like a stupid monkey. And his results on screen speak for themselves. But it doesn’t change the fact that a man hopping around in a “Green Man” outfit with a bunch of pins stuck to his face looks like a fool.
