Batman & Oscar — 2010

This is an almost yearly (and pointless) exercise, but hey, it’s my blog and I can post stupid stuff if I want to. Anyway, after the 82nd annual round of Hollywood self-congratulations, it’s time to update the following list with the Bat-alums to get nominated for little gold men in 2010.

Also, as a side note, this year’s academy (futilely) attempted to make up for last year’s snub by nominating 10 films (though Hurt Locker won Best Pic anyway) and using The Dark Knight to describe what the Sound Editing/Mixing awards are all about.

Well, hopefully Nolan’s third go-round in Gotham will get the Oscar love it will more than likely deserve.
