Did you not hear Gordon clearly say that Crane was still alive at the end of Begins?

That didn't automatically mean Crane would appear in TDK. I'd rather have Aaron back than have Johnny Depp. Depp would be the most pathetic kind of pandering.

Nope, it was accepted by his parents and sister.


Heath Ledger won the supporting-actor Academy Award on Sunday for his role as the Joker in The Dark Knight, becoming only the second actor to win an Oscar posthumously.

His Oscar was accepted by Ledger's parents and sister. They accepted the Oscar on behalf of Ledger's 3-year-old daughter, Matilda.

Kim Ledger:
First of all, I have to say this is ever so humbling. Just being amongst such wonderful people, such a wonderful industry. Firstly, I'd like to thank the Academy for recognizing our son's amazing work, Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan in particular, for allowing Heath the creative license to develop and explore this crazy Joker character. To Steve Alexander, Heath's mentor, special friend and agent for 10 years. We love you, Steve.

This award tonight would've humbly validated Heath's quiet determination to be truly accepted by you all here, his peers, within an industry he so loved. Thank you.

Sally Bell:
Heath was such a compassionate and generous soul who added so much excitement and inspiration to our lives. We have been truly overwhelmed by the honor and respect being bestowed upon him with this award. Tonight, we are choosing to celebrate and be happy for what he has achieved.

Kate Ledger:
Heath, we both knew what you had created in the Joker was extraordinarily special and had even talked about being here on this very day. We really wish you were, but we proudly accept this award on behalf of your beautiful Matilda. Thank you.

Am I the only one who sees Heath's oscar as nothing but a reward to the advertising campaign that was made out of Heath's death? I mean sure he was a great Joker but it was quite obvious that the acadamy was pressured into giving in to a fad, a fad created by the sleazebags who spearheaded the advertising movement by basically putting it in everyone's heads that if you don't think the Joker is a revolution in acting then you know nothing about film and probably the type to kick puppies. Instead of stopping worthy winners of existing awards next year lets just have new categories for brainwashing and pissing on graves!

I caught this on TV the other day. Man, that ending is disjointed. The entire boat sequence just DRAGS. Then in about ten minutes wrap the Joker, Harvey Dent and Batman is screwed. The first two acts hold up really well.
