Often the big tentpole summer movies pop up in the technical categories. If you look at the Best Sound Editing/Sound Mixing Categories over the years, you'll often find a lot of blockbusters in those. Best Visual Effects and
Best Editing as well. I believe all three Transformers films were nominated for the Sound awards; the final Bourne film
both Sound categories and Editing when it was nominated. Batman franchise have been good with tech noms as well. This year, I can't imagine that
Dark Knight Rises
won't be nominated for at least some of the nominations mentioned above.
But as far as high-powered nominations go: Best Picture, Best Actor etc. unless the film has been rapturously received throughout the year, it's very unlikely that a summer movie will crack those top races. Which is sometimes unfortunate, as there are often a lot of hidden gems released earlier in the year that get swept under the rug come awards season.
