As much as I loved the movie and would be delighted to see recognition for it and the cast and crew, I think Warner Bros. are being a little ambitious if they think this will lead to any nominations. Hathaway will more likely be nominated for her turn in Les Misérables if anything, and although Bale gave (arguably) his best performance as Bruce Wayne/Batman of all three movies, I can't see the major awards brass recognizing him as a best actor contender. Christopher Nolan as best director would be my pick out of all of these to actually garner any award plaudits. On the other hand, after the uproar when The Dark Knight failing to receive any noms led to The Academy Awards expanding the number of movies eligible for Oscar love in their best picture category, they may just look to make amends. Unlikely, but stranger things have happened. What do you guys think?
