‘Introducing the Stunt Awards,’

— Katherine Brooks, deputy editor, Vulture

We’re less than a week out from the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences’ annual celebration of movie magic, and there’s one important department that will go unrecognized at the 2023 Oscars: the stunt professionals. While superior production design, visual effects, and sound editing receive awards, there are no trophies honoring the coordinators, performers, and camera operators crucial to action-centric films like Top Gun: Maverick, Everything Everywhere All at Once, Avatar: The Way of Water, and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, all of which are nominated for something at this year’s ceremony. Although we at Vulture can’t rectify the Academy’s mistake, we can draw attention to it and launch our effort to honor the above- and below-the-line talent that bring a Tom Cruise spectacle to the screen.
The Stunt Awards Vulture’s inaugural celebration of stunt professionals is here. Because if the Oscars won’t recognize them, we will.
