Three-time Oscar nominated screenwriter John Logan hopes that his work on the latest Bond flick Skyfall will help the film gain recognition at next year's awards.

Of the 23 previous Bond movies over the last 49 years, only two have collected Academy Awards, both in technical categories.

Goldfinger won best sound effects in 1964 and a year later in 1965, Thunderball got best visual effects.

On whether he hoped to get recognition Logan told the BBC: "Yes," adding: "I think we made a proper movie, which was our goal."

Logan has previously been nominated for his work in Gladiator, The Aviator and most recently, Hugo.

There has also been reports that Dame Judi Dench could be nominated for her role as M in the flick.
