    Are 'The Master' and 'The Dark Knight Rises' finished in terms of getting a Best Picture Oscar nomination?

  • MattS | January 4, 2013 8:50 AM

    The Master, and I'd say even Amour, still have a chance at getting a nom. But TDKR has ZERO chances.

    One needn't be a snob to support "Amour." But a vote for "Marigold Hotel" indicates a cry for help, and not just with online balloting.
