Heath Ledgers Dark Knight co stars predict a win
Heath Ledgers co-stars from forthcoming epic The Dark Knight, the second Batman movie directed by Christopher Nolan, have tipped the late star for an Oscar win.
Christian Bale, Gary Oldman and Maggie Gyllenhaal have suggested that Bale could win an Oscar in 2009 for his intense performance as The Joker in the highly anticipated sequel.
Bale told MTV It's early days, but if anybody deserves it, of course, it is HeathI do think that he has created an iconic villain that will stand for the ages.
Maggie Gyllenhaal, sister of Bales co star in Brokeback Mountain, Jake, explained that Heath "hit it in the entire performance (in Batman) It's so difficult to do that in a huge movie like this and much easier to do in the tiny movies. That's why those are always the people who win Academy Awards.
The award ceremony will be held approximately a year after Bales untimely death and an Oscar may serve as some testament to the actors dedication to the role that he embraced.
