Stunt Work & the Academy Awards

It would be pretty great if, in the academy award ceremony, stunt work was being recognized. Stunt men and women do amazing work every year in movies and that shit always goes unspoken. Why? Wouldn’t a Best Stunt category be awesome? And think of the clips! They would show you the five best stunts of the year with maybe a little bit of behind the scene on how they did it, that would automatically make it the best part of the show, hands down. Also it would shed some of the spotlight on films that are otherwise rarely recognized in the ceremony. For some reason action/adventure movies, much like comedies, are extremely neglected when it comes to award season. That is stupid and elitist and should change, but one thing at a time. At least by having a best stunt category, there would be some glory give to genre cinema, and there can’t be too much of that.

Think it over, academy people…
