Default Star Trek gets snubbed by the Oscars

Start Trek is nominated for only sound editing, sound and make-up. That makes me very mad. So you know what I am not doing on Oscar night. That Right I am NOT watching the show. What Do you guys think?

What else would have been deserved

Star Trek XI is a wonderful mainstream movie, but it's no artistic masterpiece.

Well, I don't think it deserved best picture, or any best actor/actress nominations. I think it got nominated for special effects as well. I would have liked to see a nomination for score. The movie wasn't aan A list picture, it was a highly budgeted action-adventure popcorn flick.

I'm with that.

What popular 'summer' movies have been nominated in the past, anyway (to say nothing about being awarded)?

And by that kicked out movies like 2012, Transformers 2, Terminator 4, that hadn't much worse visual effects...

I didn't expect Star Trek to win an Oscar for Best Picture--but I think it SHOULD have got a nomination! The animated "UP" got a nomination but not Star Trek??? I was astounded by that!!!! I saw a TV interview last night and the person said he was so surprised not to see Star Trek nominated.
To me, it was a slap in the face that it wasn't!
I don't watch awards shows anyway but I would have made an exception had ST been nominated. It was all so disappointing.
