"Oscar For Andy" Fan Campaign Ramps Up For Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes!

"Oscar For Andy" Fan Campaign Ramps Up For <i>Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes</i>!

Loved by critics and fans alike, Rise of the Planet of the Apes star Andy Serkis (who played Caesar via the art of motion capture) has found himself in the center a campaign to get an Oscar! Hit the jump to find out how you can support him...

After reviewers almost unanimously praised actor Andy Serkis for his motion capture role of Caesar in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, talk soon began about the actor being nominated for an Oscar. There are many, many sites out there who have found good reason for why exactly his performance deserves a nomination (or even a win) but one group of fans have taken it upon themselves to get the word out there with the "Oscar For Andy" campaign on Twitter and Facebook.

Having seen the movie twice since it was released, I don't think there can be any doubt that Serkis deserves some recognition for his work in terms of awards. While he's already brought characters like Gollum and King Kong to life on the big screen with motion capture, Caesar was undoubtedly his best performance yet. And that's exactly what it is. While we may not see him up there, there's no way that any of these characters would have been the same had they been nothing more than pure CGI creations.

So, here is how you can support the "Oscar For Andy" campaign. Just click on the images below to find them on Twitter and Facebook. And be sure to share your thoughts on this in the usual place!
