Technically, Heath Ledger could win another Academy Award. While this is highly unlikely, it's true that the Joker wasn’t Heath Ledger’s final role. He died during the filming of Terry Gilliam’s (Brazil, Monty Python and the Holy Grail) new experimental film, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus. After his death, his role of Tony (a traveling magician) was taken over by Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell and Jude Law. Clearly, this is a group of talented studs who presumably could draw in audiences at the mere mention of their names. The only problem is that a U.S. distributor hasn't been bold enough to claim this project, which already lost millions in production, for they're wary of marketing this gamble (especially after Gilliam's embarrassing flop, Tideland). I guess it is sort of hard to explain how four very different actors (including one deceased) are playing the same role—but, hey, Todd Haynes sorta succeeded by doing it with I'm Not There. So, just use your imagination people!

I have no doubt that his (and everyone that took over his role) performance will be brilliant, as always and have no doubt that it will be a fantastic film! I really hope that his last work will be honoured somehow! If not by any academy or anyone else though - it will be by us - his fans!!!! :D

I was just browsing around when I read this thread. It's odd - a year ago we were at least pondering the possibility that Heath might score another award or two. Peter Travers from Rolling Stone mentioned the possibility, if I remember correctly. And yet it never happened, not even a whisper of a hint of a nomination. I wonder why. Having seen that last performance I know it is carefully constructed and intelligently thought out, and although we only get a fragment of the intended whole, it's an impressive fragment. I have a feeling that all the honours heaped on Heath for the Joker were like the salving of consciences on the part of those who overlooked him in BBM (for which, of course, he WAS honoured by many prestigious groups, just not the biggies). Just a thought.
