That's not true(Zephros)
And what you say isn't true either, as a film can be nominated if the film before it was nominated or won an oscar. Look at Star wars: A New Hope, it won an oscar and its sequal The Empire Strikes Back, was also nominated and I think Return of the Jedi was also. The entire Indiana Jones Trilogy was mominated on their releases. There are more examples, but just needed to clear that up.
