Gary Oldman says he has doubts over Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Oscars chances - specifically those of Andy Serkis, who plays ape leader Caesar. The movie is comfortably one of the most critically acclaimed cinematic offerings of the year, though Serkis' co-star Oldman is wary of the O-word.

"There isn't a review that hasn't said how wonderful he [Serkis] is," Oldman told Digital Spy, "The audiences and critics acknowledge the work but I just don't know if it's the sort of thing that the Academy will accept."
