    Andy Serkis Deserves a Special Achievement Academy Award, and So Does Peter Elliott

    The last time a person received a Special Achievement Academy Award was in 1996, when John Lasseter was issued an Oscar statuette for "Toy Story." That honor recognized the accomplishment of 'the first feature-length computer-animated film,' which kind of recalled Walt Disney's special recognition 57 years earlier for "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs," the first feature-length animated film.

    Bong Joon-Ho Directs Short Film As Part Of Japanese Earthquake Omnibus

    While we're still waiting to see what Bong Joon-ho's next feature film will be after his excellent, Hitchock-ian effort "Mother," the director certainly hasn't been idle.
