In 1999, Andy Serkis [[StarMakingRole landed the prize role]] of Gollum in Creator/PeterJackson's epic film trilogy based on Creator/JRRTolkien's saga ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'', which quickly made him the best known motion capture performer in the movie industry, and TropeNamer for SerkisFolk. He spent four years on the part and received awards and nominations for his performance as Gollum, a computer generated character in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Two Towers'' (2002) and ''The Return of the King'' (2003) which won eleven Oscars.[[note]] Many people feel Serkis should've at least been nominated for an Oscar for his performance as Gollum, but the Academy jury is still out on whether SerkisFolk performances are acting in the traditional sense that might fall under acting award criteria, instead of lesser special effects categories.[[/note]] Serkis also used this art form in his performance as Kong in ''Film/{{King Kong2005'', which won him a Toronto Film Critics Association Award (2005) for his unprecedented work helping to realize the main character, and a Visual Effects Society Award (2006) for Outstanding Animated Character in a Live Action Motion Picture.

In 2011, Serkis parleyed his experience with Gollum and King Kong into the foundation of his own visual effects studio, The Imaginarium, which specialises in providing performance capture for SerkisFolk characters in films, TV, and video games.
