Batman, Joker, Iron Man and the Oscars

As expected Heath Ledger got a supporting-actor Oscar nomination for his portrayal of the Joker in "The Dark Knight".
But The Batman got shut out of other top categories like best picture and director.
Oddly, Robert Downey Jr. is in the running against Heath Ledger, not for Iron Man, but for his supporting role in "Tropic Thunder".
I'm really gonna have to watch that.

"The Dark Knight" did get Oscar nominations, but they were for catagories like Achievement in art direction, Achievement in cinematography, Achievement in film editing, Achievement in makeup, Achievement in sound editing, Achievement in sound mixing, Achievement in visual effects

“Iron Man” actually racked up a couple of nominations, Achievement in sound editing and Achievement in visual effects

“Wanted” which is kinda sorta a comic book movie (well not really), got a nomination for Achievement in sound editing.
