Director JJ Abram’s homage to his childhood, the 70s and 50′s alien/horror films has been nominated for a solid if not stunning 7 Silver Lena’s awards.  These include a Best Director nomination for JJ and a Best Supporting Actress nomination for  Elle Fanning.  Last year, JJ won two awards, Coolest Director and The “Jackie Chan” Award For Happiest Movie Goodness for his successful reboot of Star Trek (Which itself won for Coolest Film).  Can he move on to Best Director?

Super 8′s nominations are listed below:

Best Director Jared Harris

Best Supporting Actress Robert Downey Jr.

Best Visual Effects Kelly Reilly

Best Monster Craft

The “Big Mallet That Goes Bok Bok” Award
