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.
