Some surprises

by Kaveh Nouraee on

Namely, that The Dark Knight didn't receiive a nomination for Best Picture, nor did Christopher Nolan receive one for Best Director.

I'm pretty sure it will win Best Cinematography. I haven't yet seen all of these films, but I can't imagine them being more visually stunning than The Dark Knight.
