POLL: Does Andy Serkis deserve an Oscar nomination for Apes?

Andy Serkis thinks it's about time the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recognized that a performance-capture role IS acting. But what do YOU think?

In an interview with The Guardian, Serkis, who's made a specialty of these sorts of parts, said, "Ten years down the line, people say, 'Oh, so you did the voice of Gollum?' Or people go, 'You did the movements for Kong?' It's frustrating, because I play Gollum and I play Kong. It is acting."

Is it acting? And even if it is, was Serkis good enough as Caesar that he is deserving of an Oscar nomination for the part?
