After a wave of increasing acclaims and breaking box office records to the point of surpassing GOLDFINGER (the second most succesful Bond film after THUNDERBALL, inflation adjusted), the 50th anniversary Bond film, SKYFALL is now making his way to the Academy Awards. EON and Sony released the classic "For Your Consideration" posters anouncing their sumbition for each Oscar category.
The James Bond films have had some nomination troughout its half-century on the silver screen. The last one was in the 1981 Oscars when Sheena Easton's song for FOR YOUR EYES ONLY was nominated and was even sung by the singer in the ceremony with a musical scketch that included Bond alumni like the immortal Richard Kiel (Jaws) and Harold Sakata (Oddjob). Still, it lost to ARTHUR's theme.
If SKYFALL is nominated and is lucky enough to win, it'll be the first time since 1965 when John Stears won the Best Visual Effects Oscar award THUNDERBALL.
The Award Nomination Ceremony will be held on January 10th, 2013 and the event will be held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on February 24th.
