Why ‘Star Trek: Beyond’ Should Win The Oscar Over ‘Suicide Squad’

Genre movies rarely get a look-in at the Oscars. Thought too frivolous for the prestigious award ceremony, big budget scifi flicks are usually snubbed. If they do manage to get nominated, films like The Force Awakens and Rogue One are usually shoved to the technical categories like sound editing and visual effects.

Such is the case of Star Trek: Beyond and Suicide Squad, two summer blockbusters that didn’t quite win critics over. In 2017’s #Oscars, these movies are head-to-head for the Hair & Makeup Award — but only one of them deserves to win.
