Skyfall was the blockbuster last year that some thought might have managed a Best Picture nomination. Not TDKR.
There was an Oscar thread, on the Batboards, so the talk continued for a while, and I even remember a film critic writing in his review that it was going to win best picture. But yeah there has never been a more overhyped film than TDKR.

I agree that Skyfall was lightyears better than TDKR, and if any film deserved an Oscar nod, that would be the one.
