The Return of Sci-fi?

So the Oscar noms are in...and bar the usual nasty surprises (no Foreign Language nod for Let the Right One In?), genre fans must at least take pleasure in the recognition given to both Avatar and District 9.

Was 2009 the year that science fiction made a comeback? Serious, intelligent science fiction that is a smash with audiences while also gaining artistic acceptance? The respective picture/screenplay nods for the above would seem to indicate yes.

Pity about Star Trek, though....
