6th Annual Action Icon Awards Honors Women In Action Films!!
Amazingly enough there is still no recognition from the Academy Awards for a proper award for stunt people. The Action Icon Awards, celebrates the hard working ladies of action, and benefits The Diamond In The Raw Foundation. Although the banquet is this Sunday, November 10th, many events and workshops were held throughout the week, spotlighting various tricks of the trade.
Among the Honorees are Maggie Q for Action Icon, Boni Yanagisawa for Diamond In The Raw Award, and Tammie Baird, for Special Achievement Award.
A few categories will be decided at the event including a dynamic duo category which features the actress coupled with her stunt double. Dan's Movie Report recommends Elodie Yung and Ming Qiu for their amazing work in G.I. Joe: Retaliation for the Dynamic Duo Category!
