Dark of the Moon Nominated For Three Academy Awards
Posted by News Fetcher on January 24 '12 at 07:00 AM
By Secretcode from TFW2005:
Transformers: Dark of the Moon may have made around $1.1 Billion, but can it win an Academy Award? The nominations for the 2012 Academy Awards have been released and Transformers: Dark of the Moon is in the running for three Oscars.

The movie is up for Sound Editing (alongside Drive, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Hugo, and War Horse), Sound Mixing (alongside The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Hugo, Moneyball, and War Horse). And what is probably surprising no one the movie is also up for a Visual Effects award; going up against Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Pt. 2, Hugo, Real Steel, and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Do you think Dark of the Moon has a chance? Do you think the mere fact that the film is even considered for the awards to be a crime against humanity? Hit the 'Discuss' link below to talk about these topics and more with the community over on the 2005 Boards.
