Star Wars was never really known for winning awards in the first place, and my theory is because Lucas didn't really conform to Hollywood standards. With him out of the picture, does the ST have a better, worse, or same chance at winning awards now? Just for the record I think these awards and award shows are crap. This also includes how I feel about movie critics. They totally don't influence how I feel about the film in any way. But just for topics sakes, I was wondering how you folks felt about it? Here is a list compiled from IMDB: Star War IV: A New Hope: Won Best Art Direction-Set Decoration Won Best Costume Design Won Best Effects, Visual Effects Won Best Film Editing Won Best Music, Original Score Won Best Sound Won Special Achievement Award For sound effects Nominated for Best Actor in a Supporting Role Nominated for Best Director Nominated for Best Picture Nominated for Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen Star Wars V: The Empire Strikes Back: Won Best Sound Won Special Achievement Award For the visual effects. Nominated Best Art Direction-Set Decoration Nominated Best Music, Original Score Star Wars VI: Return of the Jedi: Won Special Achievement Award For the visual effects Nominated Best Art Direction-Set Decoration Nominated Best Effects, Sound Effects Editing Nominated Best Music, Original Score Nominated Best Sound Star Wars I: The Phantom Menace: Nominated Best Effects, Sound Effects Editing Nominated Best Effects, Visual Effects Nominated Best Sound Star Wars II: Attack of the Clones: Nominated Best Visual Effects Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith: Nominated Best Achievement in Makeup From what I can tell, Star Wars started going downhill in the academy's eyes over time. Not to mention that the PT was completely disrespected. Minimal nominations and zero wins. So will Disney turn this around? Will the academy respect Disney and Abrams more? Again we can say "if the movie is good it will get awards", but that's not true, I love all 6 films and care less what the academy thinks. Heck, I may even like J.J.s version, and they may not get awards. Also on the flip side EP7 may get a ton of awards and I may hate it. Anyhow get in before the lock!!
