Chad Stahelski and David Leitch on Stunts and Oscars

At Playboy, Marc Bernardin talks to stunt performers/stunt coordinators/directors Chad Stahelski and David Leitch about the Academy Awards unwillingess to create a category for stunts. “There is sort of also this sort of bravado stunt men have had since the beginning. We’re the guys behind the guys and we don’t need the glory. And it’s not about the glory, it’s just about respecting an industry. People have given their lives to this industry to make movies compelling. Film is a collaborative artform, I don’t know why you wouldn’t recognize the stunt performers.”
