Re: Did Heath Ledger REALLY earn the Oscar a few years ago?
All I can think of is trolling. An absolutely amazing performance that really hasn't been equalled in cinema since. The Joker was a chilling, dark character that took the Batman franchise to an all new level. Totally deserved and it would have been a joke if the academy didn't award him the Oscar dead or alive. In fact I think if his death "helped" him get the win in any way it would have been to override any bias against a "comic book" movie the academy probably has
