With four nominations and zero wins, The Last Jedi was shut out of the Oscar celebration on Sunday night. And this would be the seventh Star Wars production in a row from Lucasfilm to be shut out from the annual awards - a streak now spanning 37 years. Since the last winner was Best Sound Mixing for The Empire Strikes Back, it makes a person wonder: How much might this have to do with Hollywood holding a grudge against Lucasfilm and George Lucas over the opening crawl that caused Lucas to pay a $25,000 fine and quit the Director's Guild? Punch it!
