    This week's contest is about ANY science fiction or fantasy movie that has WON an Academy Award--in any category (best picture, cinematography, best score, visual effects..etc). A quick check on IMDB will tell you what (if any) Oscar that film won. It has to have actually WON, not just been nominated. Some examples: The Matrix, The Abyss, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Black Panther, Arrival, Mad Max: Fury Road, LOTR films, Superman, Gravity, Fantastic Voyage, ET and so on. A quick Google search will provide you lots of possibilities.

    Standard av rules apply: 200 x 200 pixels max, 1 MB max, and work/Goggle safe. The poll will go up on Monday, the 17th. You may enter up to two avatars.

    Here's mine:
    Close Encounters of the Third Kind-- Best Cinematography

    The Shape of Water--Best Picture & Director
