NASA Uses Gravity Oscar Wins for Promo Opp

Last night Ellen went viral, Pink went over the rainbow, Bette Midler went way over the top and Alfonso Cuaron went home with the Best Director award for Gravity, aka George Clooney’s Abbreviated Mid-life Crisis. While the film didn’t win Best Picture, it did score seven statues—and NASA took the opportunity to show us once again why it rules social.

The team clearly predicted at least one win for Cuaron’s space odyssey, using the hashtag #RealGravity to remind the public once again that it does some pretty cool stuff out there in space with another set of impressive images.

The feed ran choice visuals for each of Gravity’s seven wins and more.

No clouds of shrapnel here…

Thankfully, the organization didn’t use the moment to lecture everyone on the film’s technical inaccuracies. Neil deGrasse Tyson already covered that one in detail.
