Stand Up For Stunts! They Deserve An Academy Award, Too!

  • By: Amber Gallaway
  • Target: The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences

Many people do not know that Stunt People do not get an Academy Award, even though they are the ones literally putting their lives on the line for the glory of getting that thrilling and breathtaking shot.

Those are the shots that are used to promote the movies, driving people into the box offices to see those carefully designed action sequences. If you have ever enjoyed a movie, held your breath during an impossible leap from a building, been thrilled at a high-speed chase, or clung to the edge of your seat when good and evil fought it out on the big screen, then please sign this petition.

Even if action isn't your cup of tea, but you still agree with this cause, then please take a moment and sign this petition to make a change. Let's us stand up together and let the Academy know that the men and women who make the death-defying, thrilling and incredible adventures happen over and over again deserve recognition. They deserve an Oscar.

To help us create more social awareness of our cause, like the Facebook page and use the hashtag #StandUpForStunts when posting anything stunt or cause-related.
