Iron Man 2 Already Looking for an Oscar Nod?

Is the release of the new trailer on Oscar night the first part of a campaign for a golden statue?

The most anticipated (and what will probably prove to be the biggest) blockbuster of the year revealed its second full length trailer last night.
The advertising and the time slot were poised to get the most audience available at one time. RIGHT AFTER THE OSCAR'S...

The entire world was upset when the billion dollar Batman didn't get a Best Picture nomination and this year Avatar (Making over 2.5 Billion worldwide) was that massive fan favorite that nearly made up for it.
It is entirely evident that the Academy is aware of the financial gain of these films now and in fact, rewarding them if not just to bring the fan base into their show...

Paramount must have gotten the memo because 2010 is set up to be entirely their year. And assuming they know Iron Man 2 doesn't suck...was last night their first subtle hint at wanting one of the now TEN Best Pic nominations???

This fan thinks so.

Special thanks to the Dark Knight, Star Trek, and Avatar for making our world relevant again.

dark knight should have won best picture, hands down. if it can't win, then perhaps industry bias is too strong for a superhero adventure to win. but yes, iron man 2 SHOULD be a contender

As much as I liked TDK, I don't think it should have won Best Picture. Should it have been nominated? Certainly. Obviously I haven't seen IM2, but it's a long shot for a Best Picture nod. Time will tell I guess.

I really didn't want avatar to win or TDK, plus i'm with Tea in that I dont care if they're acknowledged by the academy.

Iron Man II probably wont get nominated and if it does it will not win. I dont care I'm going to go see it when it comes out and i'm also going to get the DVD. It just isn't one of those oscar winning movies which is fantastic becuase Iron Man shouldnt be like that anyway.
