Heath Ledger Wins The Oscar For Best Supporting Actor

February 22, 2009

Back when The Dark Knight was released I predicted that this movie would win several Oscars, but to my surprise it was not nominated for best picture.  However, Heath Ledger was nominated for his outstanding performance as the Joker.  As we all know, Heath died unexpectedly shortly after The Dark Knight was finished so there were more than a few people that predicted that he would be posthumously honored with an Oscar for his final role.   Tonight that prediction came true and I’m glad that it did.  Heath’s performance in The Dark Knight really made the movie memorable.  Congratulations!

Batman: The Dark Knight Is Oscar Material

July 18, 2008

If you listen to all of the hype about Batman: The Dark Knight, this movie should open this weekend with sales of over $100 million dollars.  Heath Ledger should receive a posthumous Oscar, and the movie should go down as one of the best movies ever made.  Because I live in Chicago, where the movie was filmed, I have seen an overload of coverage and just last night there was the Chicago premier of the movie with the full red carpet treatment.  So with all of the hype and build up for this movie, I’m going to go out on a limb and predict that The Dark Knight will be the top movie of the weekend and will probably be the top movie of the year.  I have heard that the way to see this movie is on the IMAX screen and I want to do that, but all of the screenings through the first weekend have already been sold out.

I found it interesting…I hope you do too
