There are two ways to play the “Oscar prediction game”: 1) Declare who should win/get nominated (based on artistic merit); 2) declare who might win/get nominated (based on the spotty history of the awards - “Hollywood politics,” body-of-work honor, redressing a past snub, etc.).

I think many who thought TDKR had a nom shot were thinking in terms of category 2. I don’t think many were insisting it was Citizen Kane (which, btw, got nominated... but didn’t win ).
