Well! Tuesday was not a bad day for scifi: Avatar racked up nine Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director, District 9 found its way to four nominations including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay, and Star Trek also picked up four nods in technical categories. Oh, and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen got one, in Sound Mixing, to go with its seven Razzie nominations. So that's nice, too.
excellent sci fi mainstream
