I have an issue with the the "motion capture" category that was added this year. The term is an outdated reference to the early days of the technology when literally all that was being captured was the motions of an actor or stunt performer. For the last 17 years, though, the technology has been able to capture the entire performance (voice, face, body) hence the more accurate term "performance capture." For those of us in the industry who do this work and have been fighting for recognition, it is an extremely important distinction that goes beyond semantics. It would be akin to a "Director of Photography" being listed as "Photographer" or a "Prosthetic Effects Designer" as a "Make-up Artist". Please consider changing this terminology to better reflect the contributions being made by these artists.
