While not saying that he didn't deserve the Oscar, I find it disturbing to see the glorification of yet another drug addict. Frankly, I'm a little sick and tired of hearing what a haunted soul he was. Oh please, get over it already. The word is full of people like that. I'm sure talk of his "genius" will provide a lot of comfort for his daughter as she grow up without a father.

dear WOW:

i can see how you would see that they just gave it to Heath cause he's "the dead guy",but did you even WATCH The Dark Knight???? ok fine, go ahead and say its a Comic Book Character..fine..whatever..but he took the Joker and redefined my opinion, he did a great acting job at making you believe he really was a psychopath...but hey..whatever...i cant really say much for the other movies cause i didnt see them. But in my opinion, congratulations, Heath! God Bless and may you rest in peace evermore!

Since I didn't watch the Oscar Awards at all, hope their rating goes down. Heard that Sean got a award. He doesn't deserved to get one because he is so powerful about politics. Hope he doesn't get another third Oscar award next time.
This one thing most of these people here don't watch or care about the Oscar anymore because in Hollywood they talked about politics. Some of producers, directors, publicists, actors, and actresses are not the best thing--they should learn about the old Hollywood how they make movies long time ago That didn't work anymore. They will make a movies like "Batman" or something that look so weird and scary. I have watching some old movies this past weekend like "Gone with the Wind", Moulin Rouge". Raintree County", and names a few. I have enjoyed them. Bye, Hollywood.

Heath Ledger suffered from unrelenting insomnia. Not being able to sleep can feel like torture.It is a complicated thing, sometimes nothing seems to help or work. He was trying a little bit of everything, I agree it would appear that at some point he began abusing his scripts..thats too bad. If he had lived he would have likley gotten treatment and went on to have a great life. Who knows. It is a rotton shame he never got the chance to get the help he needed. I still have a problem with the fact that Olson was called first and she sent her people over there , it was rumored to get rid of drug evidence. That is discusting, what a little troll of a woman if you can even call her that. I wish she had been charged with a crime. What a waste she is, anyway, I really thought Ledger was great and it is very sad what happeded to him.

I watched Angeline Joie teary eyed as the Heath Ledger family accepted his award. It would be nice to see that kind of sensitivity shown to her own father John Voight. She is only hurting herself and her children when she can't put what is past behind her and let him be a part of her life.

What a joke! It's really pathetic that a person receives an award only because he is dead. The movie was one of the worst, if not the worst, I have ever seen. God rest his soul but this is no reason to give him an Oscar.
Sean Penn.....another joke. Time and time again it is proven all you have to do is be gay, or at least play a gay person to win at the Oscars.

All uneducated idiots.
As many have pointed out, posthumous Oscars are not given out lightly and you are all a bunch of miserable human beings.
People go through crap, some come out the other end, some unfortunately don't.
Tell me you are a saint and I will retract my comment. Go crawl back under your rock.
It doesn't matter how he lived his private life, these awards are about that singular performance and he was awesome, period.
Just look at all the others who were nominated who have had many, many demons in the past, it certainly does not diminish their great performances.

I truly symp;athize with the Leger family. But really, he did not deserve this award. Being dead should not be a requirement to win.
And what is it with Brad and Angie( I'll spread legs for anyone)? I think a camera must have been mounted right beside them. Does the world revolve around these two.

For those of you saying Heath only won the award out of pity obviously didnt see Dark Knight. Heath gave a stellar performance and deserved the Oscar just as much as anyone else. Great actor received a great award!

He didnt commit suicide either people...IT WAS AN ACCIDENTAL OVERDOSE.

Please.........its not going to bring him back and doesnt change the fact that he died of a drug overdose. Dance with fire and you're gonna get burned. Move on people - the world keeps turning.

I liked Heath and his death was sad, but this whole Batman franchise is worn out, used and abused. He was OK in it, not Oscar worthy. The whole Oscar thing is a joke, these over paid actors behaving as thought hey are better than regular people. Just proves how screwed up this world is. Most of them paid more for their dresses than a car cost. Ridiculous how America glorifies such nonsense.

What do you look like?    

Heath paid for his mistake with his life, a big price, wouldn't you say? All the perfect people here who are putting him down should be out living their perfect lives instead of wasting it on a blog, don't you think?

#94-Michelle...who in the hell are you to call others "uneducated idiots" because they have a different opinion than you??!! Art is in they eye of they beholder. Difference of opinion is what makes the world go round. You are exactly what is wrong with this world, you would be quite happy if every single person lived like sheep, walking in a line, conforming to the masses. You are the uneducated one, my dear, though I can see you are too small minded to recognize it. Liking or disliking a movie or a performance has nothing to do with "education", MORON.
