I haven't seen the movie yet so I can't really comment, infact most of the movies that end up being nominated at the Oscars aren't even released until later in the year. So it's just weird for so many people to be calling for him to be nominated for an Oscar when the movie isn't even out yet.
I give his portrayal of the Joker in Dark Knight a 10/10! Excellent job.
Without them, I would be generally lost when it comes to picking movies to watch.
Oh and the Al Pacino win, he shouldnt have got it. Robert Downey Jr was awesome in Chaplin.
Bad choices? Chicago over Gangs of New York and LoTR - Two Towers. Titanic over everything, Forest Gump over Pulp Fiction and The Shawshank Redemption
That and the fact Pacino and De Niro only have 1 Best Actor award each is a effin disgrace
> Well the Oscar's stopped being about actual acting talent ages
> ago so heck why not give him one.
What makes you say that?
Best Actor Winner
* 2004 Jamie Foxx - Ray
* 2005 Philip Seymour Hoffman - Capote
* 2006 Forest Whitaker - The Last King of Scotland
* 2007 Daniel Day-Lewis - There Will Be Blood
Best Actress Winner
* 2004 Hilary Swank - Million Dollar Baby
* 2005 Reese Witherspoon - Walk the Line
* 2006 Helen Mirren - The Queen
* 2007 Marion Cotillard - La Vie en Rose
There has been a move towards biopics but theyre all exceptional performances that were completely deserving of the award.

This was his last 'full' movie, but Gilliam's new one will be his last actual movie to air.
