Default TDKR Oscar Chances?

Batman Begins only got nomination for Wally Pfister, but TDK got 8 nominations.

How do you guys think are TDKR chances at the 2013 Oscars?

Do you believe the move can fight for a BP nomination, or just for some tech categories? And if only tech, what?

Honestly, I don't give a damn. It will probably get nominated for BP because they want to make up TDK snub but if it wasn't for that it wouldn't. The oscars are full of phonies and its not about rewarding the best anymore (it hasn't been for awhile). Now it's just become a ceremony for "who are we inviting into the A list circle". I don't know why people get caught up in this award extravaganza in the first place, its not like they're genuine

The movie is around a year away. We don't even know if it'll be good yet. How about we wait until the thing comes out to even start threads like this?

I think the chance for much oscars is little.

And that's not strange or something,the batman films are big commercial movies,
who are target for making for the big audience.

Films like 'Slumdog' 'Biutifull' 'The Tree of Life' are more artistic movies who make much more change.

Why? you think maybe:They are more original in the way of filming and directing.

By the way:Inception had to win Best movie of 2010 oscar,because it simply was.

Glad they won best cinematography.

Does TDKR need oscars?:No!

Why not?:Because it will deliver inmensly much cash......to make much more great movies.

That is not a question for me. For 7 years every Nolan movie is in my FAVORITES list. I have no doubt that this movie will be amazing as well.

Oh, Sentinel X, do be honest the Oscars are just like some sport tournaments. The winner might often be someone who you don't like, and the one you like just fail. But that does not change he fact that the Oscars are the biggest award in the business and every one want one.

You might not give a damn but the Oscars are important.

Currently I can say that four categories look very solid (for what I know and the pure statistics).

Cinematography (Wally is 4-0 for the last 4 Nolan movies)
Sound Editing (King has won that one for the last 2 Nolan movies)
Visual Effects (Nolan IS the master of the practical special effects)
Art Direction (The last 3 Nolan films got nominated)

That's a 4 Oscars that the pure statistics is confirming (to be a front runner for a nomination of course)

If TDK didn't get a Best Picture nom, I doubt TDKR will.

^TDK backlash over not being nominated is what prompted the Academy to include more films in the nomination process.

If TDKR is typical Nolan brilliance, I can see a BP nomination this time around.

Outside of BP, acting nominations are extremely unlikely unless Tom Hardy or Anne Hathaway are undeniably great like Ledger was.

We'll see a lot of technical nominations with some wins, though. Probably 7 noms and 2-3 wins.

The categories I'd find interesting are Screenplay and Directing. The Academy has recognized Nolan twice for Screenwriting, so if TDKR has solid writing (which I expect), we could see that nomination.

Directing is unlikely, since if Nolan can't get a nomination for Directing via Inception, I don't see how TDKR will make the difference.

Nolan SHOULD have gotten a nod for Inception, directing-wise. I don't think Tom Hooper deserved the Oscar for King's Speech. It was a good movie, but it was all Firth and Rush's usual brilliance.

I recently watched The King's Speech, and it was good, but it wasn't that amazing. It was just an uplifting movie with great performances and plenty of filler.

I believe TDKR will probably get a nom if its good. One, because they now nominate up to 8 or 10 movies. And two, the following films recieved noms...

-Avatar
-Inception
-District # (forget the number. The alien movie)
-Up
-Toy Story 3

If those films can get nominations, then so can TDKR.

For all we know this movie is going to be complete crap. I actually have low expectations for the film because I believe that Ledger would've ultimately been a major player in the third film, and without him I'm unsure of where this franchise will go. Also, I haven't seen anyone do a perfect trilogy yet (I don't count LOTR because it's basically one long movie split up into three). I have faith in Nolan as a director, but I don't have a lot of faith in his writers, some of the stuff they've delivered I don't care for too much. I'm not saying it will or won't be bad or good, but I know next to nothing about the film, and I'll need some actual footage, as opposed to Nolan's home movies...erm...the teaser, to get any sense of this film one way or another. Until I see something like that I have no opinion.

He wasn't, that's completely made up. And seriously, why the pessimism? Nolan's entire repertoire of films is great.

But Nolan is one of the writers.

I guess you're one of many people who don't understand the a teaser is meant to do just that, tease. And we got actual footage, maybe you weren't paying attention.

Anyways...

Their best chances are the technical categories.

I don't see it getting any acting nods. Heath's nod and eventual win was a lightning in a bottle - everything just aligned. It was a larger than life famous character in a huge movie that was written brilliantly and acted out flawlessly by an actor gone too soon that most thought was robbed of an Oscar win from his previous nomination. None of the characters in TDKR are as "out there" as the Joker.

Even BP is not a sure thing. The Academy changed their rules again so they're not required anymore to nominate 10 films. Also, The Hobbit is more likely to get that token BP Blockbuster spot that movies like Inception and Avatar got.

I think there's a reasonable chance for some Oscar nominations at least.

The awards ceremony itself is in 2013, yes, but it's awarding the movies from 2012. Many people are using that expression. And you know that perfectly well. You just wanted to get picky.

Maybe Best Sound and Best Sound Editing. And maybe Best Cinematography. Other than that I doubt it.
