The Academy Awards, widely known as the Oscars, are awards presented annually by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) to recognize excellence of professionals in the film industry, including directors, actors, and writers. The Oscars, and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences itself, were conceived by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer studio boss, Louis B. Mayer. The first Academy Awards ceremony was held on Thursday, 16 May 1929, at the Hotel Roosevelt in Hollywood, California to honor outstanding film achievements of 1927 and 1928. It was hosted by actor Douglas Fairbanks and director William C. DeMille. The formal ceremony at which the awards are presented is regarded as one of the most prominent award ceremonies in the film industry.

Chambers oscar1

Planet of the Apes was nominated for two Academy Awards at the Oscars ceremony for 1968 - Original Score (Jerry Goldsmith) and Costume Design (Morton Haack), but lost respectively to The Lion In Winter (John Barry) and Romeo And Juliet (Danilo Donati). The film did win an Honorary Oscar - for John Chambers for his Special Makeup Design. He was only the second person to receive this honor (after William Tuttle in 1964 for 7 Faces of Dr. Lao) before the Academy decided in 1981 to designate an award category for makeup. Reportedly, Arthur P. Jacobs and Richard D. Zanuck lobbied Academy President Gregory Peck (a former client of Jacobs' publicity agency) for Chambers to be considered for an Oscar.[1]

Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes were both nominated for Visual Effects awards. 20th Century Fox attempted to lobby for actor Andy Serkis to be nominated for a Supporting Actor Oscar for both the 2012 and 2015 awards but the attempts were knocked back because motion-capture acting which Serkis used to bring Caesar to life isn't considered by the academy as full live-action acting.
