1970 & 1971 - A Clockwork Orange

8.4 / 8.0 78 8.4 X1 9.08

Despite the film's controversial nature, A Clockwork Orange was a hit with American audiences and was critically well received. Kubrick was a perfectionist of meticulous research, with thousands of photographs taken of potential locations, as well as many scene takes; however, per Malcolm McDowell, he usually "got it right" early on, so there were few takes. Filming took place between September 1970 and April 1971, making A Clockwork Orange the quickest film shoot in his career.

A Clockwork Orange received a wide variety of recognition from the award organizations: Oscar nominated for Best Director, Best Film Editing, Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay; BAFTA nominated for Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography, Best Direction, Best Film, Best Film Editing, Best Screenplay, Best Sound Track; Directors Guild of America nominated for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Motion Pictures; Golden Globes nominated for Best Director, Best Motion Picture, Best Actor; won the Hugo Best Dramatic Presentation Award; won the New York Film Critics Circle Best Director & Best Film Awards; and Writers Guild of America nominated for Best Drama Adapted.

In addition, the film is 21st in the AFI's 100 Years... 100 Thrills and number 46 in the AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movies. "Alex De Large" is listed 12th in the villains section of the AFI's 100 Years... 100 Heroes and Villains. In 2008, the AFI's 10 Top 10 rated A Clockwork Orange as the 4th greatest science-fiction movie to date. In 2008, Empire magazine rank this at #37 on their list of "The 500 Greatest Movies of All Time." In 2010, TIME placed it 9th on their list of the Top 10 Ridiculously Violent Movies.


1970 presented nothing worthwhile to offer sci-fi fans, there was the low rated Beneath the Planet of the Apes, which has a long list of viewer and critic disapprovals. For 1971, another film analyzed for this year's offering is Werner Herzog's Fata Morgana, earning a 7.12 SFMZ final score.

The film was initially intended to be presented with a science fiction narrative, but this concept was abandoned. Yet, it is still categorized as drama sci-fi. It's imagery has been adapted in other media and evidence suggesting that this is a very influential film.

Also, George Lucas' feature film directorial debut, THX 1138, earning a 6.99 SFMZ final score, was Hugo nominated for Best Dramatic Presentation. George Lucas has worked the title of this film, or parts of it, in some of his other films. In American Graffiti, the license plate of one car is "THX 138". In Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope, a reference is made to "prison cell 1138". The cinema sound certification his company developed is called "THX".

And there's The Andromeda Strain (6.92 SFMZ final score) which was Oscar nominated for Best Art Direction and Golden Globe nominated for Best Original Score. The film was also Hugo nominated for Best Dramatic Presentation.

Bringing up the rear is Charlton Heston's low rated and seldomly praised sci-fi thriller The Omega Man. Charlton Heston had read the original novel on an airplane coming back to California, and was very interested in a modern adaptation of the book; he was totally unaware of the fact it had already been made into a film long before - The Last Man on Earth starring Vincent Price.





1972 - Solaris

8.4 / 8.2 90 8.0 8.66

Solaris premiered at the 1972 Cannes Film Festival and despite the film's narrow release in only five film theaters in the USSR, the film nevertheless sold 10.5 million tickets. Unlike the vast majority of commercial and ideological films in the 1970s, the film was screened in the USSR in limited runs for 15 years without any breaks, giving it cult status. In the Eastern Bloc and in the West, Solaris premiered later. In the United States, a version of Solaris that was truncated by 30 minutes premiered at the Ziegfeld Theatre in New York City on 6 October 1976.

The critically successful Solaris features Natalya Bondarchuk (Hari), Donatas Banionis (Kris Kelvin), Jüri Järvet (Dr Snaut), Vladislav Dvorzhetsky (Henri Berton), Nikolai Grinko (Kris Kelvin’s Father), Olga Barnet (Kris Kelvin’s Mother), Anatoli Solonitsyn (Dr Sartorius), and Sos Sargsyan (Dr Gibarian); the music score is by Eduard Artemyev.

M. Galina in the 1997 article Identifying Fears called this film "one of the biggest events in the Soviet science fiction cinema" and one of the few works that does not seem anachronistic nowadays.

The film was nominated by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films for Best Science Fiction Film. At the Cannes Film Festival, it won the FIPRESCI Prize and Grand Prize of the Jury Award, along with a nomination for the Palme d'Or. For the Chicago International Film Festival, it was Gold Hugo nominated for Best Feature, both in 1972 and 1973. A list of "The 100 Best Films Of World Cinema" compiled by Empire magazine in 2010 ranked Tarkovsky's Solaris at #68.


The early seventies delivered a solid one-two punch with the previous year's A Clockwork Orange and this year's Solaris, both labeled masterpiece by many critics. Another sci-fi film of 1972, Slaughterhouse Five, earning a 7.42 SFMZ final score, is often praised and a winner of the Hugo and Saturn Awards.

Another worth a look would be Silent Running, Hugo nominated for Best Dramatic Presentation. This film is considered by many scholars to be the first environmentalist film. After the success of Easy Rider, Universal Studios hit upon the idea to let young filmmakers make "semi-independent" films for low budgets in hopes of generating similar profits. The idea was to make five movies for low budgets (one million dollars or less), not interfere in the filmmaking process, and give the directors final cut.





1973 - Sleeper

8.0 / 7.4 7.2 X1 7.75

Sleeper is a 1973 futuristic science fiction comedy film, written by Woody Allen and Marshall Brickman, and directed by Allen. The plot involves the adventures of the owner (played by Woody Allen) of a health food store who is cryogenically frozen in 1973 and defrosted 200 years later in an inept totalitarian state. There are two known cuts of Sleeper. The first, seemingly original cut, contains a dinner scene shortly after Miles and Luna return to the house where Miles was originally taken after revival. In the dialogue-less scene, Miles eats in time with a piano soundtrack while Luna watches him in amazement.

The film contains several plot points which parody or spoof several well-known works of science-fiction, most notably H. G. Wells' The Sleeper Awakes and George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four. Another direct homage/parody is the use of actor Douglas Rain (best known as the voice of HAL 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey) to voice the evil computer in Sleeper. But Sleeper is mainly a comedic tribute to the comedians whom Woody Allen deeply admires: Benny Hill and Bob Hope.

Award wins and nominations: nominated for Best Science Fiction Film by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films; won the Hugo Best Dramatic Presentation Award; won the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America Best Dramatic Presentation Award; and nominated for Best Comedy Written Directly for the Screen by the Writers Guild of America. In 2000, readers of Total Film magazine voted Sleeper the 30th greatest comedy film of all time. Also in 2000, the American Film Institute listed Sleeper 80th among its 100 Years… 100 Laughs.


While no landmark films like the previous two years of the seventies, viewer and critic praise indicates that entertaining sci-fi surfaced in a number of films in 1973. Besides the Woody Allen comedy sci-fi highlighted above, there was also Fantastic Planet, which earned a 7.66 SFMZ final score.

This French / Czechoslovakian collaberation won the Cannes Film Festival Special Award and nominated for the Palme d'Or. It was also nominated for Best Dramatic Presentation by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. It's been stated the film is based on the Soviet Occupation of the Czech Republic. The animation was started in Prague but had to be moved to Paris to avoid interference by the Communist authorities who were in power at the time.

Westworld (7.09 SFMZ final score) was one of the first, if not the first film to incorporate CGI for effects. The film received the following nominations: Golden Scroll (Saturn) Awards Best Science Fiction Film; Hugo Awards Best Dramatic Presentation; and Science Fiction / Fantasy Writers of America Awards Best Dramatic Presentation.

Soylent Green (6.91 SFMZ final score) won the following awards: Golden Scroll (Saturn) Awards Best Science Fiction Film; Avoriaz Fantastic Film Festival Awards Grand Prize; and Science Fiction / Fantasy Writers of America Awards Best Dramatic Presentation. The film also received a Hugo Awards nomination for Best Dramatic Presentation. The video game in Simonson's apartment, "Computer Space", was one of the first coin-operated video games, manufactured by Nutting Associates in 1971 and designed by Nolan Bushnell, who later founded Atari and designed "Pong". Another often praised sci-fi film of '73 is Ivan Vasilievich: Back to the Future.





1974 - Non si deve profanare il sonno dei morti

7.2 / 7.0 6.8 7.20

Non si deve profanare il sonno dei morti is a Spanish-Italian horror sci-fi film written and directed by Jorge Grau and starring Ray Lovelock, Arthur Kennedy and Cristina Galbó. The film focuses on two Londoners who are harassed by a local police investigator in the English countryside and are framed for murders committed by zombies who have been brought to life by a farming pesticide.

The film premiered in Italy on November 28, 1974, and was released in the United States in 1975 under the title Don't Open the Window, frequenting the drive-in circuits and cinemas paired as a double feature with The Last House on the Left (1972). The film was released in the United Kingdom under its title The Living Dead at the Manchester Morgue, despite the fact that the film takes place in South Gate, not Manchester. While there are claims that a scene in which a zombie eats an eyeball was filmed, no such scene exists in any surviving print of the film, according to the liner notes of the Blue Underground DVD release.

The film was released in Italy on November 28, 1974, and was later released throughout 1975 in the United States and the United Kingdom under varying titles. In total, the film was released under more than 15 different titles internationally. The film won the Cinema Writers Circle Award for Best Director, and the Catalonian International Film Festival awarded it for the CEC Medal, Best Special Effects, and Best Actress.


Other sci-fi films of 1974 include Dark Star, earning a 6.69 SFMZ final score. This John Carpenter film won a Best Special Effects award by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films. It was Hugo Awards nominated for Best Dramatic Presentation and also nominated for Best Dramatic Writing by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.

This was John Carpenter's only theatrically-released film that wasn't shot in Panavision, until he directed The Ward (2010), which was shot in Super 35. Co-writer Dan O'Bannon later reused the "alien mascot" section of the film as the basis of his script for Alien.

Another horror sci-fi film that was analyzed, Phase IV, earning a 6.53 SFMZ final score. Science Fiction writer Barry N. Maltzberg wrote a novel based on Mayo Simon's original script. As a result, the ending of the novel differs from the film.





1975 - Rollerball

6.0 / 6.4 6.5 X1 6.61

Rollerball is a dystopian science fiction film directed by Norman Jewison from a screenplay by William Harrison, who adapted his own short story "Roller Ball Murder", which first appeared in 1973 in Esquire magazine. Although it had an American cast, a Canadian director, and was released by the American company United Artists, it was produced in London and Munich.

Reviews for the film have been mostly positive. Variety praised the film, calling the lead performances "uniformly tops." TV Guide gave the film 3 out of 4 stars, saying that "the performances of Caan and Richardson are excellent, and the rollerball sequences are fast-paced and interesting."

James Rocchi of Netflix said in his review that "the combination of Roman Empire-styled decadence and violence mixed with a vision of a bizarre, loveless corporate future is evocative and unsettling."

The film won three awards from the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films - Best Actor, Best Cinematography, Best Science Fiction Film. It also won the BAFTA Best Art Direction Award along with BAFTA nominations for Best Cinematography, Best Film Editing, and Best Sound Track.

Rollerball was Hugo nominated for Best Dramatic Presentation, and nominated for Best Dramatic Writing by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. The film was nominated for three American Film Institute Lists - 100 Years...100 Thrills, 100 Years...100 Cheers, and 10 Top 10 - Science Fiction Film.


Other sci-fi films of 1975: The Stepford Wives, a science fiction–thriller film based on the 1972 Ira Levin novel of the same name earned a 6.58 SFMZ final score. It's SFMZ score makes it virtually interchangeable with Rollerball as best sci-fi film of 1975.

The film was nominated for Best Science Fiction Film by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, along with an award win for Best Actress. It was also nominated for AFI's All Time lists - 100 Years...100 Thrills and 10 Top 10 - Science Fiction Film.

Two other scif-fi films analyzed for this list were virtually off the radar. Le orme and The Noah, both films gathering no high ratings or praise.





1976 - Logan's Run

6.1 / 6.6 6.8 X1 X6 6.96

Logan's Run is a 1976 American science fiction film directed by Michael Anderson and starring Michael York, Jenny Agutter, Richard Jordan, Roscoe Lee Browne, Farrah Fawcett and Peter Ustinov. The screenplay by David Zelag Goodman was based on the novel of the same name by William F. Nolan and George Clayton Johnson. It depicts a dystopian future society in which population and the consumption of resources are managed and maintained in equilibrium by the simple expedient of killing everyone who reaches the age of thirty, preventing overpopulation. The story follows the actions of Logan 5, a "Sandman", as he runs from society's lethal demand.

The film was shot primarily in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex – including locations such as the Fort Worth Water Gardens and the Dallas Market Center – between June and September 1975. The film only uses the basic premise from the novel, that everyone must die at a specific age and Logan runs with Jessica as his companion while being chased by Francis. The motivations of the characters are quite different in the film. It was the first film to use Dolby Stereo on 70mm prints.

The film won a Special Academy Award and was nominated for two more, Best Cinematography and Best Art Direction-Set Decoration. Logan's Run was very popular at the Saturn Awards, winning the six awards it was nominated for: Best Science Fiction Film, Best Cinematography, Best Art Direction, Best Costume, Best Make-up and Best Set Decoration. It was also nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation, the older award for science-fiction and fantasy films, and for the Nebula Award for Best Script. For the film, Anderson was nominated for the Golden Prize at the 10th Moscow International Film Festival.


Sci-fi film at box office in the mid-seventies remained relatively quiet in 1976. Besides Logan's Run, another film analyzed is the low rated and near zero viewer/critic praised sequel to Westworld, Futureworld. However, the film did win Best Science Fiction Film and Best Actress by the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy & Horror Films, along with a Hugo nomination for Best Dramatic Presentation.





1977 - Star Wars

8.2 / 8.1 9.1 8.8 X6 9.39

Critic Roger Ebert wrote, "Like The Birth of a Nation and Citizen Kane, Star Wars was a technical watershed that influenced many of the movies that came after." It began a new generation of special effects and high-energy motion pictures. The film was one of the first films to link genres—such as space opera and soap opera—together to invent a new, high concept genre for filmmakers to build upon. Finally, along with Steven Spielberg's Jaws it shifted the film industry's focus away from personal filmmaking of the 1970s and towards fast-paced big-budget blockbusters for younger audiences.

Star Wars won six Oscars at the 50th Academy Awards, including Best Art Direction. Other Oscar wins include Best Costume Design, Best Film Editing, Best Visual Effects, Best Original Score, Best Sound, and a Special Achievement for Sound Effects Editing. Additional nominations included Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Best Original Screenplay, Best Director, and Best Picturel.

At the 35th Golden Globe Awards, the film was nominated for Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor, and it won the award for Best Score. It received six BAFTA nominations: Best Film, Best Editing, Best Costume Design, Best Production/Art Design, Best Sound, and Best Score; the film won in the latter two categories.

John Williams' soundtrack album won the Grammy Award for Best Album of Original Score for a Motion Picture or Television Program, and the film was awarded the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation. In 1997, the MTV Movie Awards awarded to Chewbacca character the lifetime achievement award for his work in the Star Wars trilogy.

The film also received twelve nominations at the Saturn Awards, the oldest film-specialized awards to reward science fiction, fantasy, and horror achievements, including a double nomination for Best Actor for Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford and Best Actress for Carrie Fisher. It won nine: Best Science Fiction Film, Best Direction and Best Writing, Best Supporting Actor, Best Music, Best Costume, Best Make-up, Best Special Effects, and Outstanding Editing. The film was selected for numerous AFI's All Time lists: 100 Years...100 Movies, 100 Years...100 Thrills, 100 Years...100 Heroes and Villains, 100 Years...100 Movie Quotes, 100 Years of Film Scores, 100 Years...100 Cheers, 100 Years...100 Movies (10th Anniversary Edition), and 10 Top 10 Sci-Fi Film.

In 2011, ABC aired a primetime special, Best in Film: The Greatest Movies of Our Time, that counted down the best movies chosen by fans based on results of a poll conducted by ABC and People magazine. Star Wars was selected as the No. 1 Best Sci-Fi Film. In 1989, the U.S. National Film Registry of the Library of Congress selected the film as a "culturally, historically, or aesthetically important" film. In 2002, Star Wars and The Empire Strikes Back were voted as the greatest films ever made on Channel 4's 100 Greatest Films poll. In 2006, Lucas's original screenplay was selected by the Writers Guild of America as the 68th greatest of all time.


1977 produced another Oscar winning sci-fi film with Close Encounters of the Third Kind, earning a SFMZ final score of 8.47. Besides winning an Oscar for Best Cinematography (and Special Achievement Award for sound effects editing), it was also Oscar nominated Best Director, Best Art Direction, Best Effects, Best Music, Best Sound, Best Film Editing, and Best Actress.

It also won a number of awards from other award organizations such as the Saturn Awards, BAFTA, Golden Globes, Hugo Awards, Directors Guild of America, and others.

Lacking the universal praise as the previous two films, another sci-fi film of '77 receiving underwhelming viewer and critic reviews is Capricorn One, though it was Hugo nominated for Best Dramatic Presentation.






1978 - Superman

8.0 / 7.0 88 7.3 X5 8.10

Superman, directed by Richard Donner, stars Marlon Brando, Gene Hackman, Christopher Reeve, Margot Kidder, Glenn Ford, Phyllis Thaxter, Jackie Cooper, Marc McClure, Valerie Perrine and Ned Beatty. The film was released with critical acclaim and financial success. Reviewers noted parallels between the film's depiction of Superman and Jesus and particularly praised Reeve's performance. The film's legacy presaged the mainstream popularity of Hollywood's superhero film franchises.

The film depicts Superman's origin, including his infancy as Kal-El of Krypton and his youthful years in the rural town of Smallville. Disguised as reporter Clark Kent, he adopts a mild-mannered disposition in Metropolis and develops a romance with Lois Lane, while battling the villainous Lex Luthor.

Superman was nominated for three Academy Awards - Best Film Editing, Best Music, and Best Sound Mixing. The Academy also honored the film with a Special Achievement Academy Award for its visual effects. Superman was successful at the 32nd British Academy Film Awards. Reeve won Best Newcomer, while Hackman, Unsworth, Barry and the sound designers earned nominations. The film won the Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation.

At the Saturn Awards, Kidder, Barry, John Williams and the visual effects department received awards, and the film won Best Science Fiction Film. Reeve, Hackman, Donner, Valerie Perrine and costume designer Yvonne Blake were nominated for their work as well.

In addition, Williams was nominated for the 36th Golden Globe Awards and won the Grammy Award for Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media. In 2007, the Visual Effects Society listed Superman as the 44th most influential use of visual effects of all time. In 2008, Empire magazine named it the #174 greatest film of all-time on its list of 500. The film also received recognition from the American Film Institute. Superman was selected as the 26th greatest film hero of all time, along with multiple nominations for other AFI lists. In 2009, Entertainment Weekly ranked Superman 3rd on their list of The All-Time Coolest Heroes in Pop Culture.


Another sci-fi film of '78 is the highly praised remake Invasion of the Body Snatchers, earning 7.75 SFMZ final score. The film won the Best Director and Best Sound Saturn Awards, along with Saturn nominations for Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Make-Up, Best Science Fiction Film, Best Special Effects, and Best Supporting Actor. It was also nominated for the Hugo Best Dramatic Presentation Award.

George Romero's horror sci-fi Dawn of the Dead also earned a respectable 7.78 SFMZ final score and was Saturn award nominated for Best Make-Up. Perhaps worth a look is Michael Crichton's Coma, which received a Saturn nomination for Best Actress - Geneviève Bujold.






1979 - Alien

8.7 / 7.6 8.7 8.5 X1 9.05

Alien opened in American theaters on May 25, 1979. The film had no formal premiere, yet moviegoers lined up for blocks to see it at Grauman's Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood where a number of models, sets, and props were displayed outside to promote it during its first run. Critical reaction to the film was initially mixed. Some critics who were not usually favorable towards science fiction, such as Barry Norman of the BBC's Film series, were positive about the film's merits. The film was a commercial success, making $78,900,000 in the United States and £7,886,000 in the United Kingdom during its first run. It ultimately grossed $80,931,801 in the United States and $24,000,000 internationally, bringing its total worldwide gross to $104,931,801.

Alien won the 1979 Academy Award for Visual Effects and was also nominated for Best Art Direction (for Michael Seymour, Leslie Dilley, Roger Christian, and Ian Whittaker). It won Saturn Awards for Best Science Fiction Film, Best Direction for Ridley Scott, and Best Supporting Actress for Veronica Cartwright, and was also nominated in the categories of Best Actress for Sigourney Weaver, Best Make-up for Pat Hay, Best Special Effects for Brian Johnson and Nick Allder, and Best Writing for Dan O'Bannon.

It was also nominated for British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards for Best Costume Design for John Mollo, Best Editing for Terry Rawlings, Best Supporting Actor for John Hurt, and Most Promising Newcomer to Leading Film Role for Sigourney Weaver. It also won a Hugo Award for Best Dramatic Presentation and was nominated for a British Society of Cinematographers award for Best Cinematography for Derek Vanlint, as well as a Silver Seashell award for Best Cinematography and Special Effects at the San Sebastián International Film Festival. Jerry Goldsmith's score received nominations for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score, the Grammy Award for Best Soundtrack Album, and a BAFTA Award for Best Film Music.

Despite having criticized Alien in 1980, Roger Ebert included it in his "Great Movies" column in 2003, ranking it among "the most influential of modern action pictures" and praising its pacing, atmosphere, and settings. In 2002, Alien was deemed "culturally, historically or aesthetically significant" by the National Film Preservation Board of the United States, and was inducted into the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress for historical preservation.

In 2008 the American Film Institute ranked Alien as the seventh-best film in the science fiction genre as part of AFI's 10 Top 10, a CBS television special ranking the ten greatest movies in ten classic American film genres. The ranks were based on a poll of over 1,500 film artists, critics, and historians, with Alien ranking just above Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991) and just below Ridley Scott's other science fiction film Blade Runner (1982). The same year, Empire magazine ranked it thirty-third on its list of the five hundred greatest movies of all time, based on a poll of 10,200 readers, critics, and members of the film industry.


Wrapping up the seventies, looking at the landmark films above, this decade was one of the brightest decades for sci-fi film. Another sci-fi film of '79 often considered a landmark film is Tarkovskiy's Stalker, earning a SFMZ final score of 8.48.

It's unique approach to sci-fi has received universal praise from viewers and critics. The film won the Cannes Film Festival Prize of the Ecumenical Jury and was nominated Best Film by the Fantasporto Awards. It also won Fantasporto's Audience Jury Award.

Also released in '79 was Time After Time, earning a 7.44 SFMZ final score. The film received various recognition from award organizations including: won the Saturn Award for Best Writing, Best Actress, and Best Music.

It was also Saturn Award nominated for Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Costumes, and Best Fiction Film. Additionaly, it won the Avoriaz Fantastic Film Festival's Antenne II Award and the Grand Prize Award, along with a Hugo nomination for Best Dramatic Presentation.

The list of sci-films of '79 worth a mention continues with The Brood, earning a 7.06 SFMZ final score. The film won the Catalonian International Film Festival's International Critics Award along with Genie Awards nominations for Best Art Direction / Production Design, Best Sound, Best Music Score, Best Performance / Foreign Actress, and Best Performance Supporting Actor.

Phantasm (6.71 SFMZ final score) won the Avoriaz Fantastic Film Festival Special Jury Award and received a Saturn Award nomination for Best Horror Film. The Tall Man, actually an alien who "squishes" humans into slaves for his world, has become nearly as iconic as other horror greats such as Jason Voorhees of Friday the 13th and Michael Myers of Halloween.

Star Trek the Motion Picture, though it is univerally low rated by viewers and critics, it did win the Saturn Award's Best Special Effects. The film also received a number of nominations including: Golden Globes Best Original Score; Hugo Awards Best Dramatic Presentation; Oscar Best Visual Effects, Best Art Direction / Set Decoration, & Best Original Score; and Saturn Awards Best Science Fiction Film, Best Special Effects, Best Costumes, Best Director, Best Make-Up, Best Music, Best Actress, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, & Best Supporting Actress.
