TDKR was well reviewed and received, but not as well reviewed and received as TDK. And the competition was tougher this year.
Sometimes it has nothing to do with competition. The Dark Knight not getting a nod had less to do with its competition than with the academy being weary to nominate a comic book film.

The Reader with its 63% RT score got in over TDK with its 94% rt.
