My only clue was the document released prior to the film that explained The Dent Act. Immediately I knew The Patriot Act's disguised presence in the film would somehow allude to modern terrorism.
Alexi, I agree with a lot of your posts. I think Nolan deserves a Best Director nod and the TDKR deserves a Best Picture nod.
I'm just not expecting it, because we know the Academy's weird history when it comes to Nolan and snubbing him for TDK and snubbing him for a Best Director nod with Inception.
They have a bias towards him that is evident.
