Reeves and Chad Stahelski are calling for a Best Stunts Oscar.
As Oscars predictions come in, one category will not be on the ballet. The Academy Awards are being combined with some categories that have been axed, but there is a greater call to honor the art of stunts. John Wick star Keanu Reeves and Chad Stahelski are calling for a Best Stunts Oscar.As per IGN:
John Wick director Chad Stahelski said, “Honestly, I’ve been around that for my twenty-something-year career as a wives’ tale of why stunts aren’ts not in the Oscars. The talk has never been held This is a rather solemn statement but Stahelski believes that the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences could be turned around with the right amount of support. “I don’t think there’s anybody in the Academy or anybody outside the Academy that wouldn’t agree we’re one of the main nine departments….So has any journalist or stunt person ever walked up to the President of the Academy or a member of the Academy and go, ‘Why don’t stunts ?'”Keanu Reeves, who has obviously been in a lot of stunt-oriented movies (certainly 1999’s The Matrix would have been a viable winner), has some concerns as well. [get recognized]What would it take to make that happen? It would only take more people to say, “Hey! If so, could
John Wick 4 be the first recipient? If so, could John Wick 4 be the first recipient?There has been a call for a Best Stunts Oscar for some time, with some stunt performers previously calling for boycotts of the ceremony. These efforts proved futile as there are still 23 categories. There is also the debate of who exactly would get the Best Stunts Oscar, with the most common answer being the stunt coordinator.What do you think?
