Tom Hardy, who played Shinzon in Star Trek Nemesis, earned an Oscar nomination in the Best Supporting Actor category this year for his performance in The Revenant. And that got us wondering... Who else from the Star Trek universe received nominations this year? So, we spent a couple of hours combing the Oscar nominations and can report the following. And, in advance, congratulations and good luck to all of them:
Actually, all five films nominated for Best Sound Mixing feature a Star Trek connection. And that's because Star Wars: The Force Awakens is among the nominees, in the person of Andy Nelson, already mentioned above for Bridge of Spies.
Again, congrats and good luck to all the nominees. The 88th Academy Awards ceremony will be held on February 28th.
