In 2008, the Dark Knight was not nominated for Best Picture. There was a big enough outcry that the Academy ended up expanding its Best Picture race the following year. It was a great year for movies, as it would turn out, with The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Frost/Nixon, The Reader, Milk and Slumdog Millionaire all nominated, and Burn After Reading and Wall-E also released. For the first time doing this podcast I watched all of the films before writing and recording.
Hope you enjoy.
