CONGRATULATIONS HEATH! WISH YOU WERE HERE TO ENJOY THE ACCOLADES!  THANKS EVERYONE!

Dark Knight’s success was expected, and if you were lucky enough to see the movie you probably are still experiencing the after effects of the late Heath Ledger’s terrifying performance as the “Joker”. An Oscar nomination is inevitable for Ledger and I think it is safe (and sad) to say that he is the James Dean of this generation.

Only one star has won an Oscar from beyond the grave (Peter Finch, Network in '76) so we shall see if the statue will go to Heath early next year. I have not read one bad review of Ledger… even The New Yorker gave him a rave (and that says a lot). With all due respect, this is one hellava way to go out.

 

Sign this petition if you feel that Heath Ledger's performance as "The Joker" deserves an Oscar.

Heath was amazing at the Joker, I've seen it three times just to see his brilliant performance. He made it so real and he captured 'the jokers' insanity perfectly. No one could top him in my opinion.

There is no doubt about the fact he nailed "The Joker". He gave one hell of an performance!And "Jack" was'nt so bad awhile back! But now Heath owns the role. It is sad of his untimely passing. He does deserve this award without a doubt. God Bless him, and may he rest in peace.

Heath Ledger easily deserves a post-mortem Oscar. He took a classic character and put an interesting, frightening and awe-inspiring twist on it that will be talked about for years, at the very least, to come. I know that I will never forget it and as soon as Dark Knight comes out on DVD I will be making a purchase. R.I.P. Heath, and may your ultimate performance as Batman's archenemy rock the world for millenia to come, as I imagine it should.

Heath is just great.he has superbly done his jobas"the joker".I guess he is the only person so far who has taught us what the joker must look like.he,really,deserves it man......he is simply remarkable.Infact he is bettter than the batman to look upon in the movie.....i have become a huge fan of the joker character ever since then....actually,i wanted to become one myself...as "the joker"

Heath Ledger more than deserves this Oscar for The Dark Knight. Let's face it, he made the movie what it is, and it wouldn't be where it was without him. After breaking so many box office records, I think we can all agree it was HIM who made at least half or 3/4 of that money. There's been one person who has gotten a reward from the grave, and Heath Ledger MORE than deserves to be the second. This amazing movie would not be what it was today if Heath Ledger was not a part of it, and we should all honor him for this, espescially after having a tragic death right before the movie became such a succuss. This movie has basically become historical. Its like the next titanic, no one is EVER going to forget it. We can all agree it's probably almost impossible to do a better job than Jack Nicholson, espescially after everyone agreed HE did such a good job in the original Batman. Most people would agree that Heath Ledger's outstanding role as the Joker was better than Nicholson's. So I think that if someone can do a better job than Jack Nicholson, they absoloutely should be recognized for it. We should all sign the petition to give Heath Ledger the Oscar, espescially when he's given us such entertainment in not just The Dark Knight, but all of his movies, this is one of our last chances to give something back to him, so we should while we can. Rest in Peace Heath Ledger!

im a huge fan of heath weather he is dead or alive i believe that he will win one weather or we do this but that is just how i feel but it

Heath Ledger is completely deserving in winning an Oscar for his role in DK, as "The Joker". He was so haunting and freaky in the role and I feel that he made the movie what it is.

I'll be pissed if he doesn't win that Academy Award. I can't think of anyone more deserving of this award than him.

Oh My God... Heath Ledger deserves about 10 Oscars for his performance!!! His acting, his EVERYTHING!!! Give him the OSCAR!!!!!

Heath Ledger was just absolutely amazing as the joker. He played that role so perfectly, in almost gave me chills. He really should get that Oscar without a doubt.

Heath Ledger didnt win one for Brokeback Mountain and he should have. And the Dark Knight was just the best ever and his Joker was awsome! Hes gotta win it...

And the oscar goes to Heath Ledger’s

I have been a fan of Heath's ever since A Knights Tale. He is an amazing actor, but more important an amazing human being. Not one person who met him ever said a bad thing about him. I hope thorugh this performance in TDK that he has "new" fans that will go back and watch all his movies.
What a loss and I hope he rests in peace.

i love heath ledger!!!! he deserves the oscar!!!!

The thing that he died doesn't change his role in Dark knight!!!It was BRILLIANT, I've never seen such a realistic villain in a movie before! Oscar for you heath...

Come on, people. You are blown away.
That was an interesting performance, but no more, and definitely NOT Oscarworthy.

Heath was just so awesome!!!!! He really deserves the Oscar. I saw the moive like 4 weeks ago and his performance still just blows me away!! Ele foi DEMAIS!!!!!

Heath absolutely deserves an Oscar!!!

If he dosent get it then i just dont know anymore.... dont spare him that honor becasue he is not here and it gonna be like wasting an award....

I just saw the movie last night!
And the movie shouldn't be called the dark night, but " The Joker" Heath is absolute amazing and you just wait for him to come on the screen throughout the hole movie!
Of course he should get the Oscar!!!

this was amazing film heath ledger was great but it would not got so much atention if he had not have died

Heath Ledger was absolutely amazing in this movie. I honestly do not think any other actor could have portrayed the role of the "joker" as Heath. He MORE than deserves an Oscar.

a truely amazing performance

Yes....the best villain ever seen on the screen, and an outstanding performance...."why so serious?"...

the best performance i've seen

ZOMG IVE NEVER LIKED BATMAN MORE THEN WHEN HEATH PLAYED THE JOKER...

I THINK THE REASON THEY MITE NOT GIVE HEATH THE OSCAR IS BECAUSE HES DEAD AND THEY WANT THE PERSON WHO WINS BEST ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE TO DESERVE IT, NOT COZ THEIR DEAD.... BUT I THINK HE WOULDVE BENN NOMIATED EVEN IF HE HAND DIED

Heath Leadger should be rewarded an Oscar! I've never seen such a perfect acting in a "dark side" of role. He's funny in a dark-different kind of way. I love his acting! I've seen Dark Knight 3 Times in two weeks time. He's getting better and better every time i go and see him! Great job Heath!

HE WAS SUPERB AND CAPTURED THE CHARACTER OF THE JOKER LIKE NO OTHER ACTORS BEFORE HIM........HE DESERVES AN OSCER.......RIP HEATH.......

Oscar for our late heath ledger?why not?

i watched dark knight more then 5 times...he really good (too good actually)actor..

HE REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY DESERVES TO GET AN OSCAR!
