Ridley Scott’s return to the Alien franchise he started was one of the most highly anticipated films of 2012, and also, based on its nominations here, it also turned out to be the most disappointing with more negative nominations than any other film. This is not to say the voters found it a complete waste of time, it did earn 3 positive nominations, but 10 negative ones say a lot.
The film did earn a Coolest Actress nomination for Noomi Rapace, and a The “Dario” Award nom for Most Spine-Crawlingest Creepiness. But it also earned a Worst Director nomination for Ridley Scott, 2 Most Underplayed Role nominations and a whopping 3 Most Misused Player noms (including one for Ms. Rapace). No, this film did not make the Silver Lenas voters very happy overall.
