Surely Heath Ledger will win an oscar

Found 6th Aug 2008
Went to see The Dark Knight and i was absolutely blown away. Not only by the film itself (which was awesome!!!!) but by the late Heath Ledger's performance as The Joker. Before i went to see the film i thought that maybe the hype of his performance was fuelled by his death but i couldn't have been more wrong. His performance absolutely obliterated Jack Nicholson's performance in every way. If anyone else has seen this film please give me your opinion on the film itself and Ledger's performance

oscar for what?

Have to agree, he added so much to the film

Awsome performance, shame that he has past on as i would love to have seen him take up the role again!

Its the small details of the performance that made it such a great performance!

Not seen it yet so I can't comment on his performance, but they don't often give oscars to action/blockbuster movies - or their performers unfortunately.

Hard to believe he's out joker'd Jack Nicholson's persona in the 1st Tim Burton movie.

Too bad the majority of the viewers who thinks he deserve an Oscar does not actually get to vote.

i respect your opinion but if you look at previous oscar winning performances such as Forrest Whittaker in The last king of scotland you will see that heath ledgers performance rises above the others

I havent seen the film yet but it has to be said Heath Ledge was a fearless actor which is why he was chosen for the part!

I totally agree, his part was fantastically acted.

seen it last week and thought it was great. He played the part very well indeed. defo deserves the oscar.

I couldnt agree more with the comments.
Seriously - I would go and watch the film again and what would pull me in is to see his acting again. The way he portays The Joker is just outstanding. Best acting I have seen in a film in ages.
I always try and judge someones performance in a film by asking myself afterwards; how many times did I think during the film "Thats Heath Ledger there" as opposed to the character he is playing. Not once did I think that in the film.

I know it is slightly off topic, but is Brokeback Mountain any good?

I've had it on my shelf for yonks but not watched it.

I agree...........he deserves one as he was fantastic in the film..............on the flip side though, it does seem rather pointless in some respects now he's dead but would be nice recognition for his family that he was appreciated.

I feel sorry for his little girl, growing up without a daddy.

Extremely sad, R.I.P. Heath Ledger

I agree that the subtle nuances of his performance are fantastic but let's not get all caught up in possibility of a posthumous Academy award - Jack Nicholson's Joker probably still gets my vote given the film it's in and the direction he took
