Re: TDKR Oscar Chances? - Part 1
I would say TDKR has a better chance simply because it could be perceived as a nod to the ambition of the whole trilogy--in particular TDK which the Academy infamously snubbed in 2008 thereby creating this whole 10 picture nominating system.
But honestly, TDKR is not as good as TDK. Nor is Skyfall and definitely not Avengers. It is a crowded year and the Academy I think will use that as an excuse to ignore all big tent poles. I only think Nolan and Mendes made films worthy of such consideration, but it probably won't happen. Oh well.
