Now that's a joke and a half, IMO. There are lots better even just from this year. Best of the decade, my butt!

To a lesser degree, Downey Jr has given a great performance in Iron Man and I wouldn't exactly be amazed by him getting a nod of some kind. Will that happen? No. TDK is the best movie of the year. It deserves the statue, not a nomination. Will it get it? Nooo. Some run of the mill period piece/biopic will.

I don't think it is and I don't think it deserves it. But that's my opinion just like what's in bold is your opinion.
