    I absolutely love Serkis, im glad he doesnt have to wear a suit in Black Panther though, the guy deserves to act without dots all over him.

    If he is nominated this year, he will go up against Daniel Day Lewis... :(If Day Lewis is at the top of his game, i really want him to win and be the only actor ever to get 4 Oscars. But i also want Serkis to win, he has been overlooked for far too long now, it's a real shame. They should have halted "Phantom Thread" til next year :(

    Some of the best acting performances, are never really trully appreciated by the general public. These actors have a harder job acting like animals/creatures, and an amazing Job in doing so. The Production and Post-production team are equaly as amazing.
