LOGAN Becomes The First DVD Screener To Be Sent Out To Academy Voters - Fox Is Pushing For That Oscar

Considering how well received James Mangold's Logan was, many fans wondered if the studio would campaign for some Oscar glory for Hugh Jackman's final turn in the claws. Well, now we have our answer...

It looks like 20th Century Fox does indeed plan to push for some Academy Award recognition for James Mangold's critically acclaimed X-Men Spinoff, Logan.

Deadline reports that the studio sent out the "for your considerations" DVD screeners to Academy voters today. Apparently, this is the very first time Fox has been first in the race to get the all-important Oscars screeners out to mailboxes.

It is rare enough to see a March release get nominated for Best Picture, but both Erin Brockovich and The Grand Budapest Hotel are the more recent movies that did manage it.

In addition to a Best Picture nod, it'd be great to see Hugh Jackman get some recognition for his terrific bow as the iconic character. Of course, best Supporting Actor nods for Patrick Stewart and Dafne Keen and Best Director for Mangold would also be ideal.

What do you guys think? Does Logan have a chance? Be sure to share your thoughts in the usual place.
