In an ideal world, in addition to the technical/fx awards, there would be a nom for Ann Hathaway, Christopher Nolan and maybe even Michael Cain. None of those will happen. Anyone thinking that Cotillard or Hardy deserves noms is just nuts. Like a reviewer said: Vin Diesel may as well have been Bane. And I'm sorry, but Cotillard was the weakest part of the film.
The biggest unknown is how the Colorado shootings will affect the awards show and TDKR's chances. It's a tragedy with some unfortunate ripples.
Those two sentences alone.....
If you aren't aware by this, Hardy has been given much praise for portraying this character while wearing his mask when he excelled the part by using his physicality and how he 'spoke' through his eyes. To say Vin Diesel can do exactly the same isn't aware of how bad Diesel is and how great Hardy is as an actor.
