Default Re: TDKR Oscar Chances? - Part 1

Ledger gave a performance that was award-worthy; but, his death helped push for his acquisition of an award. I remember watching the ceremony that night, because I had two articles written for the deadline the following morning: one praising the Academy's decision to recognize his performance, the other damning it for failing to do so.

But, The Dark Knight Rises did not have that brand of calamity and hype that The Dark Knight had. Michael Caine deserves an award for his performance as Alfred. He will not acquire it, and I will be very surprised if he receives a nomination. It is wrong, but it is what it is.
