VIDEO ESSAY And the Oscar for Outstanding Collaborative Performance goes to...

Why hasn't Andy Serkis won an Oscar yet? Will his achievements as an actor ever be recognized by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences? Should they be recognized? Is Serkis an actor, or is his physical performance in a CGI-assisted role just a rough guide for a movie's digital effects?

OSCARS DEATH RACE: ADVENTURES OF TINTIN

Not to crap on two Steven Spielberg movies in a row here, because I do enjoy his work sometimes. Alas: enh. "The Adventures of Tintin"'s failure to land with me isn't entirely on the director; the source material seems like something I'd have loved as a child, but isn't something I knew before coming to the film, so I didn't get any reunion-y feelings, and motion capture may appeal to some, but is still creepy to me.
