    Different strokes, I guess. This category is becoming increasingly CG heavy. They should just change it's name to "Best Achievement in CGI."

    Now that, I agree with. I love CG but yeah, the category has become too vfx heavy.

    Though I never believed TDKR had a shot in the major awards categories. I was surprised that it didn't get any of the technical awards noms. And I know I'm in the minority up here when it comes to the score, but I'm glad Zimmer didn't get a nomination. The score was more of the same, imo. So why nominate it if they didn't bother nominating the previous two scores anyway?

    I had a bad feeling back in July that it was going to get left out of the sound categories. Depending on the format you watched it in there were a lot of people complaining that the music and sound effects overwhelmed the dialog.

    According to EMPIRE's Top 500 Films:


    The Prestige -- #305
    Memento -- #173
    Batman Begins -- #81
    The Dark Knight -- #15

    Inception wasn't made when the list was created, but it was named Empire's #1 film of "2010, maybe ever." So, it stands to reason it'd be in the top 100 of this list. I'd argue that The Dark Knight Rises will be in those Top 500 films as well the next time they compile a list like this...

    A LOT of Mr. Nolan's films rank higher, MUCH higher, than films that won the Best Picture within the same given year.

    My point isn't just the fact that films like The Dark Knight, Memento, The Dark Knight Rises and Inception should have been nominated for Best Picture, but at least two of them probably should have won.

    And the fact that Nolan has yet to be recognized as a Best Director nominee, when every one of his major releases has been recognized as a TOP FILM OF ALL TIME...It's just a shame.

    I was pretty confident that Zero Dark Thirty was going to dominate but after today it's pretty obvious that the old guys in the Academy wish to honour Spielberg again. Lincoln is going to clean up.

    Anne lost the Critics Choice award for Best Action Actress to Jennifer Lawrence. Bale lost to Daniel Craig. TDKR lost to Skyfall.

    Damn. Well Skyfall is my 2nd favourite film of 2012 so it doesn't bother me much.

    I actually thought for a second that Bale was winning because he was actually there. Stars usually just attend these smaller scale awards shows if they're winning. :funny:

    I am not upset. As good as Bale was in TDKR (best acting job in the film), Craig is simply magnetic as Bond.

    Yup, no TDKR, Hunger Games, Skyfall, Twilight, the Hobbit or Amazing Spider-Man; aka 6 of the 7 highest grossing movies of the year.

    Well (if I'm not mistaken) The LA Times gave Rises a perfect score so in retrospect it's not a surprise that they didn't include it.

    This is what the Academy Awards is about brotha . Politics. Plain and simple. We should not be surprised TDKR was snubbed, but snubbed in the technical fields? Really?

    Politics = Zero nominations for TDKR.

    TDKR not being nominated in at least the technical fields is even more proof positive of that. Plus the Academy's biased and disrespect toward comic book genre films in general and there you go.

    The hypocrisy of the Academy voters knows no bounds.

    What a joke. I won't be watching the Academy joke of a show....again. :down

    BTW, even Lincoln is not that great of a film either. Long and boring. DDL is the only real shining light in that ho hum of a film.

    IMO TDKR had more balls and ambition than any other film from 2012. We can argue the execution all day, but Nolan did some extraordinary, outside the box things with the freedom he was given on a project of this size, and he did so while honoring a pop culture icon and making a great mass entertainment film.

    I'll cherish this movie for decades to come, and look forward to sharing the trilogy with my children some day, if I ever have any. The award stuff is all white noise. The true prize is the film(s).
