(2777) Shukshin is an asteroid of the main belt that was discovered on September 24, 1979 by the Russian astronomer Nikolai Stepanowitsch Tschernych at the Crimean Observatory in Nautschnyj ( IAU code 095).

The asteroid was named after the Russian writer , director and actor Vasily Makarowitsch Schukschin (1929–1974), who sought in his work to portray the difficulties associated with the everyday life of ordinary people, especially in the Soviet village, and thus the cinema and theater of the Soviet Union gave new impetus in the 1970s.
