Re: TDKR Oscar Chances? - Part 1
I keep reading complaints on CBM.com over how TDKR shouldn't get any nominations, but I really don't get it...if you look at all the statistics for all three films in Nolan's trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises would be in between The Dark Knight and Batman Begins over critical acclaim, over general audience criticism, over fan criticism, and yet people are making it seem like TDKR doesn't deserve anything. Granted, TDK deserved some more nominations, especially Best Picture, but with the nominations being spread to include more films, why not TDKR? It's a magnificent ending and is indeed one of the best endings to any series of films in a long, long time. That alone should be enough to give TDKR a nom. If a film like Avatar gets acknowledged only for its unique take on 3D and using giant blue aliens instead of humans to narrate a film, then I don't see how TDKR couldn't get nominated.
