Back in December, Kris mentioned DarkCampaign.com, the unofficial website set up for the express purpose of getting “The Dark Knight” into the Best Picture race. Needless to say, there must be some very glum faces round those parts right now, but they might find some consolation in this very classy letter from Jonathan Nolan (thanks to Awards Daily for pointing it out):

It’s truly humbling that you guys would take the time and effort to try to get the film recognized. I, like you, was disappointed that Chris didn’t get some recognition this morning, but for Heath and so many of the people who worked so hard on this thing to get nominated is thrilling.

Any nominations for a comic book movie is a thing of beauty no matter how you slice it, and that takes the sting out a bit. Besides, I’ve been to the big show before, and, like any of these things, it’s a little disappointing. Did you know it’s not even an open bar once the show starts? At least this time I would have remembered to bring a little cash so I could buy myself a drink after losing.

The best part of this experience is seeing other people getting passionate about the film the way that we did. It has been a truly incredible experience. So thank you again.

Well said. Who are the movies made for, anyway?
