Oscar weekend means one thing: Twitter feeds around the world filled with running commentaries of every twist and turn at the world’s biggest movie awards ceremony. Due to a shortage of sci-fi and fantasy nominees (seriously, how did Looper not get nominated for best original screenplay?) at this year’s bash many of the best tweets fall outside SFX’s remit, however, the show’s unexpected Star Trek obsession proved without a doubt that the Academy clearly have sci-fi at heart:

@SethMacFarlane The Oscars is basically the Kobayashi Maru test.

@DAVID_A_SLADE I friendly note to hollywood screenwriters: If you’re going to write Science Fiction, its probably a good idea to know a bit about science.
