Quick Take: Great Debate – Should Oscar Have Nominated The Coens Over Chris Nolan?

26 Jan

by Chris Petersen

Obviously, this has been the main story coming out of the Oscar Nominations. Christopher Nolan, three time Director’s Guild Award nominee, has never been nominated for an Oscar. He has proved himself on almost every level as a director, yet fails to receive recognition from the Academy. With Inception‘s not only box office, but critical success, as well as a Director’s Guild Nom (usually a sure sign that they will get an Oscar Nom), it seemed like Nolan would finally get his due with at least a nomination. Sadly, he was snubbed again, bringing the internet something new to complain about, and everyone has their opinions.

Amongst all the clutter of debates on the subject, the article I have linked to below has the most well written arguments for both sides of the coin. Does the Academy go with The Coens and  their remake of True Grit? Or do they go against the grain and recognize a director for making a summer blockbuster? If you have  the time, you should give it a look.
