Yeah, was just catching up on the old Oscar and saw that. Neat.

Oh, I had mometarily forgotten this the first time a Star Trek film has ever won an Oscar!!

Congrats also to Giacchino for winning for his score for 'Up' and a BIG one to Kathryn Bigelow for becoming the first ever woman to win the Best Director Award!!

Wonder if she feels 'on top of the World!!!!'










(Now we just need the inevitable whining from someone that the Academy Awards are a joke and normal service will have resumed.......)

That's usually what Trek makes it for...No surprise here.
It's sort of a consolation prize.

I guess the surprise would be that it won this time.

The Oscars do tend to work that way - consolation prizes (Juno's Best Screenplay prize because it wasn't going to win any of the others it was up for two years ago), cumulative pat on the back 'Thank You's' for being popular (aka Sandra Bullock's Best Actress award and possibly Jeff Bridges's also - I'm seeing Crazy Heart on Tuesday so will tell better then) but at the end of the day, like any such award all that ends up being remembered is......'I got one!!!!'.

And it means Trek can advertise itself as an Oscar-winning franchise and join all the others - that's just straightforward good PR!!

First Contact had the same award....
It's not a prestigious and they no better to put Academy Award wining movie on the DVD's just because of that...

Trek was thrown a bone and they really didn't even deserve that.
I say bury the Bone and do better.
Shoot for the stars.

They give this award when the movie makes a lot of money but had no substance OR...
When the movie makes a lot of money but there are clearly better films int he other categories. Even if Avatar hadn't come out the same year you still had Transformers and IRONMAN who both frankly did better than Trek.

The fans think Trek did GOOD. But Good don't get you and ACADEMY AWARD.
it's not a strict popularity contest but sometimes it is and some times you have to have good credentials.

"First Contact" was nominated for Make Up in 1997 but "The Nutty Professor" won the Oscar that year. "Avatar" and "Transformers 2" weren't nominated for Oscars in the Make Up category this year because there was no make up in either film worthy of nomination. "Iron Man" came out in 2008 and was nominated for Oscars in the Visual Effects and Sound Editing categories in 2009 but not in the Make Up category because there was no make up in that film worthy of nomination. I'm surprised "Iron Man" didn't get nomitaed in the Costume Design catagory though. "Star Trek" deserved the make up Oscar it won last night vs. the other films nominated in the category.

Well, since it did win an Academy Award then it's actually perfectly legitimate to advertise it as an Oscar-winning film. Not that they will likely repackage it at this point anyway, but if they wanted to, they certainly could.

It's not disingenous when you have the hardware to prove it.
