Oscar Nomination Snub: Christopher Nolan for 'Inception'
For the second straight film -- you might recall that whole "Dark Knight" thing -- Christopher Nolan was nominated for a Directors Guild Award, but snubbed by the Academy (the Coen Brothers took his place). Good thing Nolan earned a nomination for his "Inception" screenplay (and the movie picked up a Best Picture nod), or else he'd probably start taking this personally. Also snubbed for his "Inception" work? Ace editor Lee Smith.
