I actually agree with the Broadcast Film Critic’s Association’s decision to give special Distinguished Achievement in Performing Arts Award to ape impersonator Andy Serkis and the King Kong special effects gang on 1.9.06 at the 11th annual Critics’ Choice Awards gala. The group is creating the award to recognize “the singular achievement in creating this character, representing a revolutionary leap forward in synthesizing visual effects with an actor’s performance,” said BFCA president Joey Berlin . The award will be accepted by Serkis and Kong animation guys Christian Rivers and Joe Letteri.
