The 89th Oscar Academy Awards is honoring the best films for 2016 and is set to kick off on Sunday, February 26 2017. So is Star Trek Beyond in with a good chance of winning? OR Star Wars for that matter? Winning what? (I hear you cry,) all right, all right! Apparently trekkers, Trekcore is reporting that Joel Harlow and Richie Alonzo created the cool alien atmosphere for Starbase Yorktown.

So hilarious when Dr McCoy walks onto the USS Enterprise NCC 1701 bridge after Chekov declares:

"WOW, That is impressive"
"Awe shes a beauty isn't she?" replies Scotty
"What a Damn Monstrosity! - Couldn't we just rent some space on a planet? 

So now Suicide Squad and a Man Called Ove have to set their Prosthetics on MAXIMUM to beat Star Trek Beyond's high Alien standard.

So okay,  In the visual effects preliminary. there were 20 movies. Star trek Beyond got shortlisted yet again just like Star Trek Into Darkness.

Yet Star Trek Beyond did qualify for an Oscar Nomination! Fact. Its true!!! Curiously Star Trek 2009 won an Oscar for makeup and now deja vu, we're back for Best Makeup and Hairstyle in 2017!

Did Star Trek Beyond deserve a final VISUAL EFFECTS Oscar Nomination?

The Oscar Visual Effect Nominees are:

1. Deepwater Horizon

2. Doctor Strange

3. The Jungle Book

4. Kubo and the Two Strings

5. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

but hey this is the Oscars!!! Joel and Richie will hold up their golden statues and say,

"Thank you Star Trek  and everyone who loves Aliens, we did this for you!"

Live Long and Prosper Alien lovers

Sadly, A Man Called Ove will probably win...

I guess we'll have to wait and see Alex but at least Rogue One made it into VFX.

I was not impressed with the story because of the holes I found (so sorry) but the effects were tremendous and it is a crime that they were not nominated for Visual effects. I believe the academy is actually becoming "bored" with the awesome special effects from ST and SW so they decide to pick anything else but these 2. OK yes, they picked Rogue One but it won't win...I would be surprised. I do want to see A man Called Ove but I just think it is so wrong when they picked this for best make up-they made him older than he is...big whoop

I entirely agree with you Birgit, the tragedy about Beyond (and I wrote a serious review of the movie in November) - is it had such great potential but marketing wise, wowsers and merchandising? Forget it. Fans like me were kept in the dark. Kraal who? Oh yeah! He was the villain. Rogue One is bound to do better and its like Alex says we know who's not going to win... Star Trek

The Oscars are way too sci fi phobic. Which is too bad.

Star Trek deserves to get a proper acknowledgement at the Oscars QED. I mean how long have they been producing TV and Movies for now?
