Oscars not giving stuntmen their own category


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The Academy was in the mood for change earlier this week, announcing tweaks to the Best Picture race and altering Animated and Effects categories. But the organization wasn’t in the mood to accept every change put before it, much to the stuntman’s chagrin.

In fact, the Academy flat out “declined” to launch a special category that recognized the work of stunt coordinators on major motion pictures, THR reports. Stunt coordinator Jack Gill told the trade that while the Academy “appreciates” the work of these coordinators, a new category will not be added, even if it isn’t part of the annual telecast.

But Gill’s not giving up the fight.

“I will try again next year and gather more and more support,” Gill said, acknowledging the appreciation of big-screen heroes like Arnold Schwarzenegger who have supported his cause.
