Warner Bros. has launched their Oscar campaign for Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. Some of the Oscar awards they are pushing for include Best Picture, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay. As much as I loved The Dark Knight Rises, I don't see it winning any of those. It might get nominated, but it wasn't a better film that The Dark Knight.
The studio kicked the nomination push off with a "For Your Consideration" ad in Variety Magazine, which you can see above. The studio also set up an official website promoting their campaign.
TDKR is one of many films that the studio is pushing for this award season. The other films include Argo, Cloud Atlas, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and Magic Mike.
