Andy Serkis 'Could Get Overlooked By Oscars'
Gary Oldman questions whether co-star's motion-capture performance will appeal to Academy...
Gary Oldman has been discussing his Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes co-star Andy Serkis' chances of bagging an Oscar for his performance in the film.
Serkis portrays ape leader Cesar, who is rendered with computer effects based on a sophisticated motion capture procedure.
And despite praise from critics and the beginnings of some Oscar buzz, Oldman wondered whether the Academy voters would be ready for it.
He told Digital Spy: "He's mentioned. There isn't a review that hasn't said how wonderful he is.
"The audiences and critics acknowledge the work, I just don't know if it's the sort of thing that the Academy will accept."
Serkis has previously portrayed Gollum in The Hobbit and the Lord Of The Rings.
