  1. The Screen Actors Guild and the Directors Guild have also nominated The Dark Knight. It’s looking pretty good for Nolan and company and it would be a big break through for the superhero genre if The Dark Knight gets some wins. (fingers crossed)

  2. I heard! Hooray! 🙂

    Toes crossed, too!

  3. Oh, and the American Society of Cinematographers nominated it too. With all those nominations you would think it would have to get a couple of Oscars.

  4. Whooo!
