My page...
https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2458045/

has me as a nominee for a SAG stunts award for The Dark Knight Rises. 

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2458045/awards?ref_=nm_awd

I was never a stunt performer for the movie. Can I get this removed without requesting to delete and reedit the entire award?

1- That entry is not editable, you can only remove it and then add a new entry without your name. But I can assure you that process would almost never work or it would be painful, you would have to deal with lots of declines.

2- The thing is your name is actually announced as a nominee by SAG for that award: https://web.archive.org/web/20131207165252/http://sagawards.org/media-pr/press-releases/jobeth-willi...

"The nominees for this year’s Stunt Ensemble honors are:" -> THE DARK KNIGHT RISES (WARNER BROS. PICTURES) -> Ben Record

So data on IMDB is accurate.

BUT, That announcement also has this note:

NOTE:
Credits for the Stunt Ensemble Nominees are not final. All names are subject to verification.

This note, especially "All names are subject to verification" part may be your chance to convince IMDB staff to remove your name.

But why bother that much tbh, is nominated by SAG for an award a bad thing?

"That entry is not editable, you can only remove it and then add a new entry without your name"

I think this is a pretty simple sentence. My reply starts with it, missing it or not understanding it is an impressive achievement.
Splitting or modifying that field is not possible.
Method I specified is advised by IMDB itself:

Plus there's no different person with the same name involved here. He worked on the movie. It's at most a credit mixup by SAG.

EDIT:
This was a response to this uninformed comment to my reply, it seems gone now when I was replying back:

He needs a letter from SAG to correct this.
And I removed that reply because it was incorrect.
And recommending that he be dishonest and keep the nomination was not smart.

By mistake or not he's officially nominated by SAG after all. That is fact.
I was not recommending dishonesty, I was trying to emphasize the fact that IMDB wants to keep even incorrect credit roles or incorrect names with as attribute if they were credited on-screen that way. Not same but it looked like a similar matter to me. I just tried to tell him that convincing IMDB to remove an officially announced nomination would be hard, that's all.
Btw, I was gonna delete that reply after realizing comment was removed but got some errors so decided to add context.

Ben.
Question.
You were making miniatures in that movie. This we can see from your credits.
Was any of those miniatures used in a sequence that was blended into a stunt scene?
If so, then you may have been added because you were indirectly part of the sequence nominated. Especially if those were animated miniatures controlled by you or the crew you were part of.

We did a miniature sequence. A few of us dressed up in costume for reference and I'm 100% certain our names were added to stunts on IMDb tongue in cheek by a coworker. I've already removed my name from the IMDb stunts credits, but it still shows up as a nominee, I'm guessing because these awards credits are such a different beast. 

I'm willing to bet the SAG list linked above that has me as a nominee was pulled from the IMDb page, because I guarantee I was not part of any stunt team. Nor would I have been submitted by SAG for such an award.

Someone from my work was being overzealous with credit listings, now I'm just trying to get it off.

Hey Ben.
Thanks for the answer.
It's what I thought.
Some goofy inclusion.
Now here is the part that cannot be changed.
SAG has you listed at their website. This is cannot be disputed.
IMDb will never remove data that is correct.
I know that you don't believe that this should be listed. But IMDb will only look at it from what the award nomination says.
So their reply will be.

IMDb aims to be the most comprehensive and reliable source of information on movies, TV and celebrities. We are committed to accuracy and it is our longstanding policy not to alter or remove correct factual information from our records.

Also, IMDb will not remove accurate information. If you try to delete an item of data which is accurate, your delete will not be processed.



I know that's not what you want or believe that it's the right thing to do.
So you will have to live with the award nomination.
Thanks again

Thanks for your post.
You will need to submit a removal request and then add then submit the new award listing with the correct recipients. However, please note that we strictly follow the most complete official award listing. If you are not named as an award recipient then your name is not eligible to be listed.
Thanks for your understanding.
