Ledger Most Likely To Win Oscar For Performance By An Actor In A Supporting Role

February 22, 2009



By Ane Howard

HOLLYWOOD,(RushPRnews/Hollywood Today) 02/22/09- Heath Ledger the favorite for a posthumous Oscar win  for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his possessed performance as The Joker in "The Dark Knight", his final note on the short well-lived score that was his life.

Nevertheless he will face some serious competition.  Who could forget Robert Downey Jr's hypnotic performance in “Tropic Thunder” as an white American actor playing an Australian actor playing a black man,  so obsessed with academy recognition, that reality becomes completely blurred for the role? And funny to boot.

Michael Shannon seen in “Revolutionary Road”is not a household name but should after this Oscars evening. He was brilliant and yes appropriately disturbing as a mental patient who sees thing, god-all-too-clearly and speaks his mind about it.

Philip Seymour Hoffman will be remembered for his subtle, and nuanced performance of a parish priest under suspicion for questionable behavior  in “Doubt,” but then again, is he ever anything else but brilliant.
