Andy Serkis who is most well known for the motion capture for Gollum in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, is also known for his performance as Caesar in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Many have praised his performance as award worthy, I myself stated this in my review of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
Fox announced that they are pushing to have Serkis nominated in the “Best Supporting Actor” category at this upcoming round of oscars, around which there was much speculation. The studio is now promoting the entire cast; Toby Kebbell (Koba), Keri Russell (Ellie), Jason Clarke (Malcolm), and Gary Oldman (Dreyfus) for the “Best Supporting Actor Category.”
