Warner Bros Dream Of An Oscar For The Dark Knight Rises

14 November 2012 2:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The campaigning for the Academy Awards has started and it’s a known fact that some films will always be considered Oscar worthy while others have to fight much harder for the consideration. The Dark Knight Rises is both a comic book film and an action film, two genres which aren’t always associated with the prestigious occasion.

However, after Heath Ledger’s posthumous Oscar win for his portrayal of The Joker in The Dark Knight in 2008 – Warner Bros is hoping that the Batman franchise finally gets accepted by the Oscars. The studio is submitting nomination requests for almost everyone in the cast, and for every category imaginable. They’ve launched a new ‘For your Consideration site’ and the nominations they are hoping for are:

Best Picture

Emma Thomas

Christopher Nolan

Charles Roven

Best Director

Christopher Nolan

Best Adapted Screenplay

Screenplay by

Jonathan Nolan and

Christopher Nolan

For Your Consideration: Warner Bros. launch Oscar Campaign for The Dark Knight Rises

12 November 2012 11:43 AM, PST | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy came to an incredible finish this summer with the release of The Dark Knight Rises. And with the Oscar season very much on the horizon, Warner Bros. have launched their campaign for the final instalment in Nolan’s trilogy, alongside Ben Affleck’s Argo, the Wachowski siblings’ and Tom Tykwer’s Cloud Atlas, Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and Steven Soderbergh’s Magic Mike.

Nolan’s final instalment entered the $1bn. club this summer, and has personally been one of my favourite films of the year by a long shot, earning a place on my favourite films of all time.

Naturally, the studios are all gearing up their campaigns for the coming awards season, and though some of the categories that Warner Bros. are aiming for here are more than a little bit hopeful, we could well see The Dark Knight Rises »
