Tomorrow, the 82nd Annual Academy Awards will be held and Star Trek fans wait to see if one of the four nominations for the J.J. Abrams film will strike Oscar gold.
While most Oscar fans will be waiting to see whether Avatar or The Hurt Locker will walk away with Best Picture honors, Trek fans are hoping that at the end of the night Star Trek will have laid claim to its first Oscar.
Four separate Star Trek movies have been nominated for ten Oscars, but all came away empty-handed. The nominations were for Star Trek: The Motion Picture (3), Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (4), Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (2) and Star Trek: First Contact (1).
