Yeah, I thought he deserved it.
Definitely deserved it.
I'm glad he's getting the recognition he most definitely deserved.
Boo. He was good, but I think he only got it because of his death.
Dark Knight was overrated in every aspect.
Lol, so who was your pick for best supporting actor?
I agree the film was ridiculously overrated, although Ledger put in a damn fine performance.
I haven't seen any of the other nominees, so I wouldn't be able to tell you if he deserved the award or not.
Dark Knight was a decent film, would've found it alot less interesting if Ledger wasn't in it... Bale's performance was... eck..
Congratulations to Mr. Ledger.
I have to agree with Brawny about the film being overrated, but Ledger's performance as The Joker was still excellent.
I honestly think Eckherts' performance was best in that movie.
If he didnt die would he still win one?
I never even herd of him till the film
Brokeback Mountain, the Patriot, A Knights Tale...
I've got to admit, I never heard of him before Dark Knight either.
Thats understandable. He never played huge rolls till the Joker.
Ledger almost won a "Best Actor" Oscar for his performance in Brokeback Mountain. Surely, there's a film with a lot of publicity (controversy). Oh well...
Not that how publicised he is as an actor has anything to do with whether or not he should have won the Oscar. The second spot in line for the Oscar was filled by Josh Brolin (who you also probably don't know - I didn't until this film) for his performance as Dan White in Milk, which, while it was a good performance, wasn't nearly as stand-out as Ledger's in The Dark Knight. And I'm not really biased, because I ****ing loved Milk, I actually preferred it to The Dark Knight. I can just see that Ledger's performance was better than Brolin's. If he'd been up against Sean Penn as Harvey Milk in Milk, I'd have backed Sean Penn.
I'm still curious who you think should have won, Adam.
Ive seen better pornos
Herd of never seen seems a bit gay (not in a happy way)
Ledger won? No surprise.
Who should have won? Don't know. Hadn't seen all of the movies.
I think he definately put in an Oscar winning performance. Congratulations Heath.
Not even such greats like 10 Things I Hate About You!?
Anyway, I don't think this film would have even been successful if not for his death. I haven't been to see it, and that's because I can't be bothered unless someone pays for me. If someone outta Cloverfield died then that would have been in the history books. Instead it's actually recognised for what it really is.
I'm sure his performance was great. Just as I think Kate Winslet is, but I mostly like her for her personality and "Now I'm going to get massively drunk".
Slumdog Millionaire though. I can't see how at all. My disbelief actually wants me to go watch this film.
Apparently, Ledger managed to fit in another film before dying called "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus". I wonder how many box office records it's going to break just because he was in it.
Actually, I find that Cloverfield gets massively overrated as well.
I have yet to see it, and I don't even know what it's about. But it could be good- last year's winner (No Country For Old Men) is one of the best films I've ever seen.
I personally thought that Slumdog Millionaire was a very good film. Great story, direction and music.
It's about a boy winning the Indian version of "Who wants to be a Millionaire?", and how growing up in the slums has allowed him to learn the answers.
