Sigourney Weaver as Ellen Ripley looks concerned in James Cameron's emAliens/em film.

Summary SCREENRANT VIDEO OF THE DAY SCROLL TO CONTINUE WITH CONTENT Alien franchise star Sigourney Weaver’s Oscar nomination for Aliens was well-deserved but remains one of the genre's biggest snubs. The actress made her mark in cinema history with the character of Ellen Ripley, considered to be one of the greatest final girls and action heroes, particularly in the sci-fi/horror world.

It was a huge surprise to all of us because it was in that other world. I think that Jim Cameron created such an amazing structure for the character of Ripley, to start out with no one believing her and thinking she's crazy and all these other things. He gave me so much to work with, and I really appreciate the Academy community getting over whatever prejudices they might have against this kind of sci-fi genre and nominating me for the actual work.

While the masterful work by Scott, Cameron, and others helped shape the Alien franchise, Weaver was the foundational key to its survival.
