    Haven't yet seen "Avatar". Only saw "Star Trek" on DVD last month.I'd like to say that, hat "ST" been nominated for "Best Picture", i would have strongly suspected that The Fix Was In.Let's say it's better than some of the later "ST" films from the old version … but a "Best Picture" nominee it is not – by several parsecs.(Incidentally – speaking of the older "ST" films – may i call your attention to this El Goonish Shive strip, which, i think, is very close to the Last Word on that subject?

    I think ST had two strikes against it. First, of course was that it came out early last year, which is ancient history in Hollywood. The second, and I think the major hit, was that I don't think the Academy wanted three Sci-Fi films in the Best Picture category. I didn't see DISTRICT 9, but could it have really gotten more votes then Trek?
