Stan Lee’s Oscar Campaign

by Craig Skinner

There are currently a lot of categories in the Oscars and I suspect that a lot of the votes are pretty random rather than seriously considered. Do the Academy members actually watch all the short films? Do the Academy voters all know the difference between Sound Editing and Sound Mixing? I doubt it. I tend to speculate each year about whether they’ll add even more new categories and what they might be. Dustin Hoffman’s character in Wag the Dog laments the absence of an Oscar for Best Producer and I would actually like to see Stunt work included in the Oscars. Probably more likely for new Oscar categories are best use of CGI or perhaps even 3D.

Stan Lee though, in the amusing clip embedded below, is proposing a category for Best Cameo Artist. As you can see in the clip, Lee has cameoed in quite a few Marvel films and he was also seen recently on Television in The Big Bang Theory. The video is pretty funny and worth checking out. Although clearly not serious it did get me thinking, what are the best cameos I’ve seen in films. My personal favourites in the Marvel films, for instance, aren’t Stan Lee but actually Bruce Campbell in the Spiderman films.

Enjoy the clip and let us know what your favourite cameos are in the comments below.
