Stuntman Loren Janes is pushing the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences to award an Oscar to professional stuntpeople — a man and a woman — who have been in the business 30 years or more. Janes is one of Hollywood's most successful stuntmen, and co-founder of the Stuntmen's Association of Motion Pictures.
