The Oscar nominations for the 85th Annual Academy Awards were just unveiled and The Dark Knight Rises is no where to be found. I’m a little surprised. I wasn’t expecting it to get nominated in any of the major categories, but I did expect it to be nominated in a more technical category like “Best Cinematography”.
The Dark Knight received 8 Oscar nominations back in 2009, so either The Academy really disliked Christopher Nolan’s epic Batman finale, or the competition was extra strong. Not all The Dark Knight Rises stars are upset though… Anne Hathaway received a “Best Actress In a Supporting Role” nomination for her work in Les Misérables.
