Is 'Breaking Dawn' Looking for an Oscar?

One of the most fascinating aspects about Summit Entertainment's plan for the fourth (and probably fifth) installment(s) of the Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, is that they're eying some pretty prestigious directors for the gig. Not only have they already put Gus Van Sant, Sofia Coppola and Bill Condon on their shortlist, but now the LA Times says you can add Stephen Daldry (The Reader) to that list, too.

'Breaking Dawn'

Daldry is perhaps the most decorated of all the directorial choices so far, seeing as he's been nominated for three Academy Awards. Aside from helming the critically acclaimed Kate Winslet film The Reader, he's also found much success with other titles like Billy Elliot and The Hours – two very excellent films. Could you imagine Daldry adding Breaking Dawn to that list? Obviously Summit feels like they have some very solid content with this fourth book, as they're looking to step away from the genre directors and into the pockets of some awards veterans.
Does this mean Summit wants to try to make Breaking Dawn an Oscar contender? Sure, the fourth book is pretty meaty and contains some of the more adult situations the series has had to offer, but is it enough to warrant a nomination for something other than the People's Choice Awards or MTV Movie Awards? Of course, Daldry hasn't been offered anything yet – and there's a very good chance he'd decline – but I can't be the only one who finds their director choices a bit interesting.
What do you Twi-hards think? Is the material in Breaking Dawn worthy of an Oscar?
