2005's Batman Begins was only nominated for one Oscar, and that went to Wally Pfister, but he lost to Dion Beebe (Memoirs of a Geisha). While 2008's The Dark Knight was treated much better at 81st Academy Awards, as the film was nominated in eight categories: Actor in a Supporting Role, Art Direction, Cinematography, Film Editing, Makeup, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, and Visual Effects. The film ended up winning two of those categories as Heath Ledger won Best Actor in a Supporting Role and Richard King won for Best Sound Editing. So, how well or poorly will the Academy treat The Dark Knight Rises?
