Hollywood got it right. Heath Ledger won for best supporting actor. An award that was SO UBER deserved. YES YES YES!!!
And honestly I dont think he won because he died. He won because he WAS the Joker.
His character was so bone chilling and maniacal, just so beautifully thought out and portrayed. It was incredible genius...and it blew everyone else out of the water. No one stood a chance.
And his familys acceptance speech was really beautiful.
See HERE for one of the best scenes from dark Knight (the hospital scene)
and you will agree that he is amazingly talented.
RIP Heath Ledger. Your genius will be missed.
