Star Trek was represented in a number of ways and by several people during last night’s Academy Awards presentation. One of them no doubt brought a tear to the eye of many fans. But let’s start with the winners. Mark Mangini earned the statuette for Best Sound Editing for his work (with David White) on Mad Max: Fury Road. He’d been nominated three times before, including for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. He’d also contributed to Star Trek: The Motion Picture and Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.
Chris Jenkins won for Best Sound Mixing for his collaboration with Gregg Rudloff and Ben Osmo on Mad Max: Fury Road. Jenkins served as sound re-recording mixer on Star Trek Nemesis, Star Trek Generations and also Star Trek V.
Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness producer-director J.J. Abrams was in the audience and took to the stage to present Best Director.Tom Hardy, Shinzon in Star Trek Nemesis, was on hand as a Best Supporting Actor nominee for his performance in The Revenant. Hardy lost to Mark Rylance, but Best Actor winner Leonardo DiCaprio graciously thanked Hardy for his efforts during his acceptance speech. Alexander Courage’s Star Trek: The Original Series theme was performed as Jason Segal and Olivia Munn arrived on stage to recap their hosting of Saturday night’s Scientific and Technical Awards Presentation.
And, finally, the In Memoriam segment paid tribute to those we’ve lost in the past year. Among them was James Horner, whose scores included Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and Star Trek III: The Search for Spock. And, fittingly, the last person celebrated was Leonard Nimoy, who was seen in a brief clip uttering Spock’s iconic line, “I have been, and always shall be, your friend.”
