'Dark Knight' for Best Pic, Supporting Actor

Let the awards battle royale begin. Warner Bros. has already started running the requisite For Your Consideration ads in the trades for The Dark Knight. The strange thing is, at this point, the comic book blockbuster really does seem like a viable contender to win Best Picture, and of course, Heath Ledger is a lock for at least a nomination as Best Supporting Actor. Cinematical posted the two trade ads below (complete with Roger Ebert and Richard Corliss platitudes), along with some guesses on who Ledger will be running against. We're just happy to see a lot of Dark Knight kudos now that it's the buzz season, although we're also a little disappointed that no other movie, major or otherwise, seems to have stepped up yet in a big way to challenge the Caped Crusader. Ah well. In the meantime, take a listen to the full Knight score now posted on Warner Bros.' site. Unfortunately, due to some pesky technical rules on authorship, the music is one of the few superlative Knight elements that is not eligible -- although fully worthy -- for the golden guy.
