And Dr. Oscar's Predicted Academy Award Nominees Are...
David Fincher, “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”
Christopher Nolan, “The Dark Knight”
Ron Howard, “Frost/Nixon”
Gus Van Sant, “Milk”
Danny Boyle, “Slumdog Millionaire”
The picture and director categories don’t usually match up five for all five, so I expect to be wrong on one of these.
It could be Christopher Nolan who gets left out, if the highbrow Academy directors deem “The Dark Knight” too commercial.
