Since the Academy Awards has expanded it’s award categories over the years - in 2010 there were (10) films, up from (5), nominated for best picture, and they are considering a future award for best Movie Titles Sequence, why not an Oscar for Extras?
It would obviously have to be a separate event from the main red carpet event in
This idea came to me back in 2005 after having seen Shaun of the Dead. The extras in that film were remarkable and would have won hands down as far as I’m concerned.
The film Gandhi had 300,000 extras. What a bill to pay if it had won!
Question: What does a single Oscar statue cost to produce?
Things to consider: The engraving of the winning picture on 10,000 awards would take months.
It would take hours for the winners (10,000 soldiers, perhaps in make up and costume?) to accept the statues.
