What the hell is Milk or The Reader? Has any average film goer even heard of these films? I never thought The Dark Knight was brilliant but surley due to its succes at the box office and its good word of mouth it should of atleast got a nomination.
So in your mind the point of the Oscars is to nominate films that lots people have already seen and know about, instead of better but slightly less well-known movies that might actually deserve the nomination (and the increased attention) more? Makes sense to me.
