Self-Deprecation?

Hugh Jackman's jab at the Academy for failing to nominate the year's most successful– both critically and financially– film, The Dark Knight, was funny, but if the Academy realizes what a foolish oversight that was, then why didn't they just, um, nominate it? Or at least admit that it was a major mistake?

(I realize that Jackman is not the Academy, but surely we can expect the views of the host to somewhat line up with those of the organization he represents?)
