In Oscar 2010, on Sunday 7th March, Star Trek won awards for the Best Make Up from the three nominees that are “Il Divo” “Star Trek” and “The Young Victoria”.

JJ Abrams is a director of ‘Star Trek’, the 11th film based on the ‘Star Trek’ franchise. By taking home Trek’s first Oscar, for Best Makeup, JJ Abrams Star Trek, has made franchise history. The Makeup category at Oscar 2010 was presented by uber-Trek fan Ben Stiller. He came out made up as a Na’vi and joked that he wished he had worn his Spock ears, admitting he had two pairs of them signed by Leonard Nimoy.
Star Trek was nominated in four categories: Visual Effects, Sound Mixing, Sound Editing, and Makeup and as an expected Star Trek won one award for Best Make Up Leaving behind other nominees like Aldo Signoretti and Vittorio Sodano (‘II Divo’) and Jon Henry Gordon and Jenny Shircore for ‘The Young Victoria’. The award is shared by Barney Burman, Mindy Hall and Joel Harlow.
