    I’m curious…if Heath Ledger wins, do you think that it’s more an obligatory win because, well, you know…? I do think he gave an amazing performance in the Dark Knight, but still.

      If Heath Ledger wins, which I’m pretty sure he will, I think it’ll be partially an obligatory win. Like you said, he did give an amazing performance as The Joker, but looking at the other nominees in the Best Supporting Actor category, it’s a weak group. His main competition is Philip Seymour Hoffman and Robert Downey Jr. I don’t know how one of the Oscar front-runners, Josh Brolin in Milk, for Best Supporting Actor wasn’t nominated in the Globes… so that being said Ledger deserves the award.

      Now if he wins the Oscar… that’s another story.
