Another award for Heath Ledger

The Los Angeles Film Critics Association named Heath Ledger Best Supporting Actor for his work in The Dark Knight.

Other winners include Danny Boyle as Best Director for Slumdog Millionaire; Sean Penn as Best Actor for MilkSally Hawkins as Best Actress for Happy-Go-Lucky Penélope Cruz as Best Supporting Actress for Vicky Cristina Barcelona and Mike Leigh for his Happy-Go-Lucky screenplay.

    Anonymous, your entitled to your opinion of course but I think your way off base.It is truly an iconic performance that stays with you long after the credits and although I admit he probably won’t win an oscar his performance is certainly worthy.

    good comments Mr. K., and totally in sync with you there.
    also believe P.Cruz win was well deserved. Looking forward to viewing Milk and Slumdog…
