Who else wanted to scratch Santa Angies stupid eyes out. She's oh so touched by the druggy that killed himself that she was moved to big salty crocodile tears. Why doesn't she go try to adopt his kid....
And for the fact checkers that say only 2 peeps won posthumously, not the point. All the hoopla and boo hooing in Hollywood is what won that Oscar. Was he really thst great as The Joker??? Anyone can slap on clown make-up and act crazy.

I was not talking about a difference in opinion, I was stating the history of the Acadamy Awards and how it is rare to win posthumously. You didn't like the performance, fine, whole different story to say "he got it because he's dead, don't ya think??
That was the reference to :uneducated idiots".
In my opinion MY DEAR, it's is YOU that is wrong with the world. In that all you seem to know is judgement and hatred.
There are miles of difference between an opinion and just spewing judgement.
You MY DEAR have now become a waste of my time.

My heart goes out to Heath Ledger. Best supporting actor award was well deserved! Best Joker of all time!

Anyone saying he only won because he died is an abolsute idiot. Brandon Lee, Aaliyah, Bernie Mac, River Phoenix and many others died before their last roles and won nothing. Ledger won because he gave the best performance of the year in the year's best reviewed film.

You are a moron. He deserved to win because he gave the best performance of the year. The first full trailer of TDK came out before he died and everyone was goign crazy at how awesome his performance looked based on the trailer alone. over the last 30 years over 50 actors have died before their last roles and none of them were nominated for an Oscar.

"He was drug addict who didn't give a crap about being a father. that's the way selfish people are. And giving his mediocre performance an Oscar just goes to show how many people have no idea what good acting is. If you think he was good, then you are an easily entertained robot".

People who know much much much more about acting than you thought his performance was brilliant. The only reason you disagree is because you can't get over your bias againt him because you hated him as a person, You know nothing about good acting. Ledger completely transformed himself into the character by drastically changing his voice and laugh and mannerisms... he became the character completely. That is what great acting is. And saying he didn't care about being a father because he took pills is like saying anyone who doesn't do drugs is automatically a great father... it doesn't work that way kiddo.

"Was he really thst great as The Joker??? Anyone can slap on clown make-up and act crazy".

If you think that's all he did than the performance went compeltely over your head. He immersed himself in the role, as the other poster mentioned he changed his voice and laugh and mannerisms and facial expressions, it was hard to believe it was the same guy from A knight's tale.

Most of these people knew Ledger. They cried because they miss their friend and co worker. Don't be jealous that nobody will care when you die while Ledger is still beloved.

"He is dead because every single person in that room did not stop him from taking drugs, in fact many did drugs with him and/or are on drugs right now. The movie was a joke, the writing for his role was a joke. You put anyone in the make up and they could have played this rediculas part. You think thats acting! hahaha....you must be a pinhead"


He didn't just put on makeup you assclown. He compeltely became the character... he changed his body langauage and his laughter and his voice.... he became another person. Most actors just play themselves.

"96. He won because he died. Period. The movie sucked. It doesn't take any talent to act like a psycho. If you call 2 straight hours of violence "entertainment" then you an easily entertained robot. The only good thing about this is that Christian Bale is probably so angry his own lame performance was snubbed, they had to put him in a straight jacket and lock him in a closet. "

Damn how many names do you have ? I know you also use Lee as a name. Bernie Mac, River Pheonix, Aaliyah and many others died before their last roles and won nothing. Ledger won because he gave the best performance of the year. He completely transformed himself into the character by drastically changing his voice and laugh and mannerisms. The movie sucked ? LMAO. It made over a billion dollars and got perfect reviews and 8 Oscar noms. Obviously it would have violence.. it's a batman movie you mongoloid.

"71. A douchebag no-talent 'actor' who took his own life...no loss there, but giving him an award for a characater on its 3rd run is a joke.
"

No talent ? LMAO. He was widely considered a brilliant actor before he died. He was even compared to Brando. Douchebag ? Nope, he was known for being a nice humble guy, Who cares how many times the character has been done ? Ledger gave the best performance of the year. You obviously are a jackass who has never even seen one of Ledger's films.

"67. "Not a dry eye" and gee, I wonder why. Perhaps it's because most of them there were actors? They know how to shed tears at the drop of the hat for appropriate moments such as this. The thing is, Ledger did something stupid and he paid for it. I don't feel anything for Ledger, but I will admit I feel for the family. They had nothing at all to do with Ledger's irresponsibility and they obviously loved him, faults and all."

Most actors cannot cry on cue, even Brando couldn't do it. They are crying because most of them knew him and respected his work.

"52. Crocodile tears. Honestly, 98% of the actors that were shown on screen "crying" for Heath have never even met the guy before. They all put on their best acting efforts to cry for someone that has never crossed their mind before the whole incident. I feel sorry for his family and loved ones. "

Another stupid comment. Most of the people in the room knew him and were friends with him, the ones who didn't respected his work. Also actors are very emotional people.
