Re: TDKR Oscar Chances? - Part 1
The whole point of expanding the category was to give movies a chance that the public has actually seen, in an effort to reverse the bad ratings trend for the Oscars. So IMO the Academy is only going to make itself look bad if they use up 10 slots to nominate 10 Oscar bait films. But we'll see what happens.
Personally I think it can go either way. Right now I'm leaning 60/40 in favor of no nomination happening.
