...Zoe Saldana was exceptional in "AVATAR" and Sam Worthington, Wes Studi and the rest of the stellar cast were very good-to say the least. It's surprising that their perfomances are not recognized because. Motion-capture or not, films without actors and directors don't exist.

In "DISTRICT 9" the fabulous Sharlto Copley, as Wikus Van De Merwe, the main human/alien-hybrid protagonist, a mild-mannered manager at the MNU Department for Relations with Extraterrestrial Civilizations, also pulled a fabulous perfomance that tremendously helped the plausubility of the script and he was also overlooked.
