india Updated: Mar 03, 2008 18:08 IST

Actress Christina Ricci believes that the actor Viggo Mortensen should get a special Academy Award for his naked fight scene in Eastern Promises.

Ricci was stunned with his performance in the movie and she feels Mortensen deserved a special mention even though he lost to Daniel Day-Lewis for best actor.

Contactmusic.com quoted her as saying: "This year there was a category missing, I am so glad that Daniel Day-Lewis won. I think he is amazing. But Viggo did some naked fighting. It's insane. There's blood and fighting and it goes on for five minutes. He deserves an award simply for the naked fighting."
