The Weinstein Company just announced that Madonna's directorial debut, 'W.E.,' has been slated for a Dec. 9 release date, which is right in the middle of Oscar season. You can check out the full press release over at Deadline.

Not to knock the Material Girl, but earlier reports alleged that the first test screening of the film bombed. And even if that's not true, it seems like a pretty bold move, considering she's only directed one movie ('Filth and Wisdom') prior to this one (and the reviews for it were very negative).

'W.E.' is a romantic drama focusing on an affair between King Edward VIII and an American divorcée.

Do you think Madonna has a shot at getting an Oscar nod?
