Welcome to K-DAY AT THE OSCARS! Award season for the films of the year start in November, and most films have to ride a wave of wins in order to make it to the big time - the Oscars! Our goal here is to promote PACIFIC RIM for awards. Its September, so planning of our promotion of this film, so deserving of some awards, (though there are no illusions here that PACIFIC RIM would ever win, let alone be nominated for Best film, ect.), has to start now.
As of now, lest suggestions from members think otherwise (the sound categories of the film), there are two awards that PACIFIC RIM could realistically be nominated for and possibly win: Best Production Design and Best Visual effects.
The effort is going to take the help of a lot of people from a lot of walks of life. Ultimately, the Oscars are voted on by the peers of those who are nominated. If we can help them see that PACIFIC RIM is the film which does the job the best in this year of 2013, then we have accomplished our goal.
Many people like PACIFIC RIM - Del Toro fans, Legendary Pictures fans, ect. - but I am particularly a kaiju fan. Seeing the kaiju film aesthetic done right (after a couple of bad attempts over the past two decades) brought tears to my eyes through out the whole film. Couple that with Guillermo Del Toro's vision, the work of Industrial Light and Magic, and the hard work done by so many people, PACIFIC RIM is a beauty of its own which has been fighting an up hill battle.
Lets help have K-Day happen at the Oscars!
