No Oscar Nominations For The Dark Knight Rises

Today the nominations for the 85th Academy Awards awards were announced , and while Warner Bros. made a strong push for the film to be nominated in several main categories, The Dark Knight Rises received zero nominations. While it's not too surprising The Dark Knight Rises didn't receive nominations in any of the big categories like Best Picture (even though The Dark Knight not being nominated for best picture back in 2009 is what really made the Academy expand that category) it is surprising that it got no recognition in any of the other categories. Maybe one day a Batman movie can push through the Academy and get recognized as one of the best pictures of the year, but if Christoper Nolan's Batman movies can't, I'm not sure what kind of Batman movie will.

    Ok, I get that people may  think Rises may not have been better than Dark Knight, but I'm still surprised that it didn't receive any nominations at all.

    Same here. I thought it would at least get nominated for Cinematography, Costume Design, and Original Score.

    further proof the Oscars really are a joke, like all award shows really.  i've got nothing against the nominees as i've seen a few of the movies and didn't hate to liked most of them but looking at the critical and commercial acclaim that Dark Knight Rises and for arguments sake The Avengers also received, on top of the fact they are the two most successful films of the year and two of the most successful of all time.  the lack of recognition is a true joke.
