Yes, I know, another “The Dark Knight” post. I can not help myself. The movie is amazing. I love the movie so much, it’s a film with perfection. Everything about the movie is perfect. While everyone is wanting Heath Ledger to get Oscar nominated for “The Dark Knight”, I think the film deserves a lot more nominations.
I think the film is worthy enough for these nominations here: “The Dark Knight” for Best Picture, Christopher Nolan for Best Director, Christopher and Jonathan Nolan for Best Adapted Screenplay, Heath Ledger for Best Actor in a Leading Role (yes, The Joker is the leading villain), Gary Oldman for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Michael Caine for Best Actor in Supporting Role (two way tie), James Newton Howard and Hans Zimmer for Best Musical Score, Lindy Hemming for Best Costume Design, “The Dark Knight” for Best Sound and Best Cinematography.
Notice I never listed Christian Bale for anything. His acting was good for Bruce Wayne/Batman but definitely not Oscar worthy. Not only Heath Ledger deserves to be Oscar nominated for this film, the rest of the film does too.
This could possibly be the first Oscar award winning Batman film. This movie is so amazing that I want to see it in theater again and again.
