Hey there...I'm Cisco Elizondo, and I'm here to start waking people up to the Dark Knight being nominated for multiple Oscars.
I am telling you people this right now.
If TDK doesn't get nominated for Best Picture and Christopher Nolan doesn't get nominated for Best Director.....than something is seriously wrong with the Academy. It would plain and simply disrespectful of the Academy if it didn't recognize the terrific work that the crew of the Dark Knight did on the film.
Wally Pfister should also be nominated for best cinemetography easily!
The Dark Knight is MUCH more than a comic genre film and for those of you who don't realize that....well you have problems.
Plus another thing to mention is that it has made 530 million domestically and nearly 1billion ww and IS the second highest grossing domestic film of all time and if a sappy film like Titanic can get nominated and win awards, than why the hell can't TDK? Arguments regarding "adjusted inflation" are weak and not valid. Inflation is part of world economics and The Dark Knight has to deal with the bootleg era.
The bias against comic based genre films shouldn't come into play when it comes to The Dark Knight at all.
That is all for now....thanks!
