My dark knight of the soul: Will a superhero come to Oscars' rescue?
How can you sleep, my fellow Oscars nuts? I can't! Academy Awards nominations are just hours away and we don't really know what will be nominated for best picture! Yes, there are three shoo-ins: "Slumdog Millionaire," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "Milk." Possibly "Frost/Nixon" too. But what about that fifth slot, eh? "Gran Torino"? "The Reader"? "Doubt"? "Wall-E"?
Or will a superhero finally land in the top Oscars smackdown for the first time ever? As TV ratings of the Oscarcast continue to plunge year to year, Golden Boy could sure use a heroic intervention.
"The Dark Knight" looms over this Oscars derby in so many ominous ways. While suffering from one of the worst cases of Oscar insomnia that I've had in a long time, I mulled all this over — just for you on this video.
