    I think that Josh Brolin and Eddie Marson were better in Milk and Happy-Go-Lucky, respectively.

    Sure he deserved this honor.
    I think he should get awards from ‘ Brokeback Mountian’ too.
    He was so good……… so good…… in BM.

    Your Matilda is lovley and I’m sure she will grow up well.

    I hope that ‘ Batman- The Dark Knight’ production company
    give more money Heath deserved to Matilda.

    I think ‘ The Dark Knight’ also got the big buzz and earned more than 530 Million USD because of Heath’s tragic incident.

    I totally agree with the nomination, he totally deserves it, I never liked the villain but his performance is irrefutably amazing. Everybody out there learn: that’s how you play The Joker, that’s how you play a villain.
    To his family and close friends this is the least ultimate honour that Hollywood could give their ever so beloved sun and friend.

    Heath owned that role. He was amazing. It was such a strech for him too- the voice, the laugh, the posture, the little mannerisms, everything. He truly deserves this.

    He MORE than deserved this nomination. If he doesn’t win, I personally think it’s an indefinite snub on his behalf. His acting was absolutely mind-boggling. R.I.P Sweet Angel, always missed never forgotten <3

    BECKY SMITH Says:

    Isn’t great Heath died the same way the Anna Nicole Smith died..!!
    But you have to laugh when you see who Heath is up against….

    Really James Franco from Pineapple Express, Tom Cruise and the
    heavy manager, and Robert Downey Jr. who had to wear
    black make up to play a black man …Than there are the serious actors
    Ralph Fiennes and Phillip Seymour Hoffman ..

    Lets see all the press who is more important Tom Cruise or Heath
    a deadbeat dad loser ..

    Meg Says:

    Becky Smith, how disgusting of you to say something about him like that. Heath was not a deadbeat dad, he was a great dad to Matilda. It’s pathetic of people to say such bad things of anyone that aren’t true.

    I’m glad Heath got a nomination, I hope he wins.
