Jack Gill on His Fight For Stunt Coordinator Oscar Recognition

Posted by Levine Communications Office on June 17, 2011

Sorry, your explosions are no good here. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences have denied stunt coordinators the right to an Oscar category in recognition of their work.

This was what the Academy had to say: ‘Stunt coordinators play an important role in many movie productions and the Academy currently honours those at the very top of their craft by inviting them to become Academy members. While the Board recognises that stunt coordinators make unique contributions to filmmaking, it voted against instituting a new annual category.’

It seems like it’s about time for these guys to get the recognition they deserve. If we can find room to nominate up to 10 movies for Best Picture, we should at least be able to squeeze in a stunt coordinator category. After all, can you imagine an action movie without, well, action?

  1. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d
    ask. Would you be interested in trading links
    or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
    My blog addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit
    from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by
    the way!
