    THE DARK KNIGHT did deserve it. If it happens tonight, it's a retroactive insult.

    You think Hollywood has a memory?

    I hope Joaquin does better than Heath (the part literally killed Heath Ledger :( ).

    I think if Ledger and Phoenix both won, it would invalidate the prestige of the Academy in their own eyes. Two Jokers in 11 years. For this reason I don't believe Phoenix can win. It's Banderas time.

    Why would it invalidate the Academy?

    They're two completely different performances. Phoenix's Joker is much harder, much grittier ... much more realistic than Ledger's.

    Ledger's Joker is much more theatrical, much more OTT (nowhere NEAR as OTT as Nicholson's, though).

    Brando and DeNiro both won for playing Don Corleone 2 years apart.

    Honestly I think Adam Driver takes home the Oscar this year. Would be nice if it were Phoenix, though.

    I love how a film or an actor winning an award is apparently an insult nowadays.

    Joker also won best score, beating out the mighty John Williams. No Oscars at all for star wars.

    John Williams already won an Oscar for scoring the original SW. He hasn't won again for scoring in that series, despite having been nominated a total of five other times (altogether six times, for all of the OT and all of the ST; never for the PT, incredibly).

    I wonder what happened with the pt. It was some of his best work.
