2011 Academy Award Nominees

January 25, 2011 by Post Team 

2011 Academy Award Nominees, If you’re wondering what that roar of anguish was about 7:40, it was probably the sound of thousands and thousands of fans simultaneously Wailing Christopher Nolan, “No!”

In what was easily the biggest surprise of 2011 Academy Award nominations – but, unfortunately, no surprise at all – the original creator’s name was omitted from the list of finalists this year for best director, despite recognition he received the Directors Guild of America (DGA) a few weeks ago. As in 2009, when his DGA-nominated work for The Dark Knight has been ignored. And just as in 2002 when his DGA-work nominated for Memento was ignored. If my statistics are correct, that makes three times that Nolan acclaimed director by the DGA, for now, no best director Oscar nods to his name … with the exception of Rob Reiner. With all due respect, but it is not exactly the kind of company you want to keep. (At least Nolan can console himself with two nominations launch, it received the Best Original Screenplay and as a producer of one of the competitors of the year the best film.)
