20th Century Fox is gearing up for an Oscar campaign that will be “like no campaign ever before in the half century” for their critically acclaimed film War for the Planet of the Apes. They also have their sights set on specific awards events like the SAGs as well.
Here are the categories Fox will be targeting for War:
- Best Picture
- Best Production Design
- Best Cinematography
- Best Costume Design
- Best Original Score
- Best Sound Editing
- Best Sound Mixing
- Best Visual Effects
- Best Makeup and Hairstyling
Additionally, they are once again pushing for Andy Serkis to get nominated for his work in the film whether that results in a Best Actor nomination, or in a special recognition Oscar for his years in mastering the art of motion capture.
But it might have some stiff competition for summer movies targeting an Oscar campaign as Logan, Wonder Woman, and Dunkirk are also strong contenders.
Whatever happens it’s time for the Academy Awards to begin to recognize critically acclaimed films again that are also box office successes.
