I know that the Oscars sometimes make some questionable moves, but I always thought the awards went to the best of the best, not just as a sympathy trophy for some junkie as a way to get Nielsen ratings.

Ledger's Oscar win for his role as the Joker compromised the integrity of the Oscars.
What the fuck is this shit?

Now, imo, Jack Nicholson is the best Joker of all time because he played the Joker the closest to how he is in the comics, but Heath's Joker was dark and angry and Heath really got in to the character so much that he even at times had trouble getting out of it. His performance was fucking awesome, not because he died, but because it was just that, fucking awesome.
