Jonah Nolan sets us straight
So by now we all know that The Dark Knight has been nominated for 8 Oscar’s. BUT, it wasn’t nominated in top categories such as Best Picture, Best Director (Christopher Nolan…WTF?), and Best Adapted Screenplay. Co-writer Jonah Nolan sent his reaction to the fans at DarkCampaign.com:
hey — not sure who to address this to as it looks like a collective effort, but I just wanted to pass along my thanks.
It's truly humbling that you guys would take the time and effort to try to get the film recognized. I, like you, was disappointed that Chris didn't get some recognition this morning, but for Heath and so many of the people who worked so hard on this thing to get nominated is thrilling.
Any nomination for a comic book movie is a thing of beauty no matter how you slice it, and that takes the sting out a bit. Besides, I've been to the big show before, and, like any of these things, it's a little disappointing. Did you know it's not even an open bar once the show starts? At least this time I would have remembered to bring a little cash so I could buy myself a drink after losing.
The best part of this experience is seeing other people getting passionate about the film the way that we did. It has been a truly incredible experience. So thank you again.
We, as fans, what the best for our heroes…including the Gold Statue. However, in true hero form, Jonah is telling us, it’s just an honor to be included.
