It was announced that Andy Serkis will receive the award for Motion Picture Showman of the Year at the 55th Annual International Cinematographers Guild’s Publicists Awards. He was chosen for his “unique contribution to the art of movies.”
Serkis starred last year in War for the Planet of the Apes as Caesar and in Star Wars: The Last Jedi as Snoke and from the 13th of February, we will be able to see him as Ulysses Klaue in Disney-Marvel’s Black Panther.
ICG national president Steven Poster said that “Andy Serkis, with his unparalleled flexibility and understanding of movement, has made motion capture his own. We are delighted that he will be flying in from England to be with us”. The ceremony will be held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on March the 2nd.
