According to ComingSoon.net, Variety is reporting that New Line is hoping that Andy Serkis, who plays Gollum, will be up for an acting Academy Award in March. The 20 minutes of “Two Towers” footage shown recently by New Line indicates a breakthrough with Gollum, who looked as real as a blue-tinted, bent and gnarled creature could look. And Jackson went back and subsequently improved the character, which the media observed. New Line will push Serkis for a supporting actor nomination.
Peter Jackson sat down for a small featurette to discuss taking The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit into 4k.
