- Oscar nominations were announced yesterday, and the Dark Knight picked up eight nominations:
Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role: Heath Ledger in "The Dark Knight"
Achievement in Art Direction: "The Dark Knight"
Achievement in Cinematography: "The Dark Knight"

No best picture, no director for Nolan, but eight nominations is a lot. Congrats to all.
- Yesterday was also the anniversary of Heath Ledger's death. Shekhar Kapur wrote a nice article about him.
- Here's the list of IMAX locations where the Dark Knight will be screened starting today.
- And way down at the bottom of the comments on this page, an anonymous reader has a complicated plot outline featuring the Penguin and the Riddler for how he'd like to see the next Batman movie go. It was a pretty good read, but Julianne Moore as Catwoman, really?
