Today it was announced that the latest Batman film, 'Dark Knight' is to be added to the best films category of 2008. It is also up for an oscar nomination for best visual effects film of 2008. The film has broken so many box office records that people have lost count. The 'Dark Knight' hosts a vast array of Hollywood stars including, Cristian Bale, Micheal Cain, Gary Oldman and most of course the late Heath Ledger. Heath Ledger himself is up for a posthumous Golden Globe this week for his hypnotic performance as the Joker in the Dark Knight as I think it is duly justified as his acting was truly mesmerizing.
The latest Batman film is by far my favorite so far and the Director Chis Nolan has done an extremely fantastic job in putting this masterpiece of a film together. Everything was perfect and the film was well taken by the audience. I think I speak for everyone when I say that the general public are eager to see when the next installment of Chris Nolan's Batman will come out.
The award for best film in 2008 will finally be decided in early 2009 at a high class luncheon in Los Angeles however the nominations list has already been compromised with the 'Dark Knight', 'Wall-E' and 'Quantum of Solace'. The winner of the nominations will obviously be crowned the best movie of 2008. Additionally, the nominations for the oscars will be announced soon with the final winners being declared in February 2008. 'Dark Knight' has already qualified for one of these awards and I have no doubt in my mind that the film will surely qualify for some more as it truly is one the best films of our generation and Heath Ledger's performance deserves all the praise that it gets.
