The International Cinephile Society nominated Michael Giacchino for both “Star Trek” and “Up” for Best Original Score, along with “The Fantastic Mr. Fox,” “Ponyo,” and “A Single Man.”

Star Trek also was nominated for Best Sound and Best Visual Effects by the BAFTAs.

Also, interesting to note that “District 9” picked up 7 nominations, for Best Director, Best Adapted Screenplay. Cinematography, Editing, Production Design, Sound, and Visual Effects. This buzz could effect its Oscar chances for Best Picture.

Give it up about the Best Picture, Star Trek XI is not going to be nominated.

It hasn’t in the past and it won’t likely now. And some of those past movies are superior to the new movie.

Despite saying that I would be happy if it won but this won’t happen.

I know I am in the minority but despite liking the film I don’t think its the best. I also find the more I watch the changes annoy me more. I stilll find it painful they destroyed Vulcan in the new movie and the contrivances in the film add to the film’s weak plot.

I like the movie for what it is and I hope that it wins as I do think it was one of the best films of 2009.

I am a Star Trek fan, I am not a JJ Abrams fan.

@ captain_neill: For the Oscars (and any other awards for that matter) it doesn’t matter whether there have been better (Star Trek) movies in the past. It is only a contest among the movies of one year.
I’m not saying that Star Trek will or won’t win Best Picture (okay, I’m pretty sure it won’t). But it has nothing to do with the 10 movies that came before it. A movie can be bad (compared to the list of all-time favorites) but it can still win if all other movies of that year were even worse.

I haven’t seen all the nominated movies but I’m surprised that Transformers and 2012 (only seen trailers of that) are not on the effects BAFTA list.
Anybody know what “The Hurt Locker” is?

I cannot believe Transformers is being nominated, it was a dreadful film and possibly the worst film of the year.


Would you be doing a tribute For Deforest Kelley’s Birthday, he would have been 90 yesterday.

#10 awww thanks for that reminder.
Bless him.

#7: DIGINON: The Hurt Locker is critically well-received, but commercially unsuccessful war film by Kathryn Bigelow about a bomb squad in Iraq. It it considered one of the frontrunners for Best Picture at the Oscars.

Star Trek will win! I think it’s the best movie ever!

Trek should definitely win for sound.

Peter to win Best Sound For ‘Star Trek’ DEFINITELY!!!!!!!!!! 3rd time lucky!!!!!
