Howard Wowed by Heath

Dec. 12, 2008by: Daniel Barna

So we here at Joblo couldn't be happier to see Heath pick up a Golden Globe nomination for his role as that makeup guy in that bat thing. Apparently we're not the only ones. Terrence Howard, who was one of the celebrities announcing the nominees yesterday morning, went so far as to say that it would be a travesty if Ledger did not win. But wait, there's more. Howard thinks Ledger's performance is so far ahead everything else this year that whoever does win the award should donate it to Ledger's family.

Errr, I'm all for honouring Ledger's performance with some awards but that's a little too much. Check Howard's words exactly:

I'm sure he will (win). Even if someone else won in his category, if I had won in that category, I would give it to his family because he truly had the best performance.

To be honest, I don't think Heath's family would have any use for a Golden Globe with Phillip Seymour Hoffman's name on it. But that's just me. Howard went on to say:

He gave more than I have seen any other actor give, he brought a new light. How do you step into Jack Nicholson's shoes? How do you do that and stretch that? He stretched Jack Nicholson's shoes.

Nicholson's shoes were strecthed alright. In a big way.
Extra Tidbit: I think this is article 4,456 on TDK related stuff for this site, and frankly I'm proud to be a part of it.

There are people that do care to hear about it. Why would anyone want to log in just to poo-poo it? I'm sure you care greatly about some piece of crap that I don't... I'm not concerning myself with it. I'd rather campaign against party poopers such as yourself.

No typo. Just sarcasm.

Also, the thought occurs that maybe Fuzzyfoot works for empiremovies.com seeing as he often mentions empiremovies.com when he screams about going back to empiremovies.com

The only reason I got back on here was because I knew people would respond to my post.

randomerratum - your sick of people complaining about the movie, I'm sick of people like you jacking it to anything TDK releated.

I enjoyed the movie, I did, just like you, but you know what, the movie came out 5 months ago! MOVE ON!!! This article is proving the point that joblo sucks this movies dick. What was the point? Who cares about Howard's opinion about Heath and his award. No one, and for

I enjoyed the movie, I did, just like you, but you know what, the movie came out 5 months ago! MOVE ON!!! This article is proving the point that joblo sucks this movies dick. What was the point? Who cares about Howard's opinion about Heath and his award. No one, and for the record, I honestly feel like Heath was nominated to shut people up. The studios are probobly fucking tired of hearing about Heath and his performance. They nominated him to appease people so it looks like they actually listen to the public to draw them back in. navarr0 is correct. It will be a cold day in hell if TDK wins best picture.

Throckmorton - news like this is not fair game. This website used to be about informing people of upcoming films, trailers, reviews said movies, and the 10 spot. This article is only posted because Joblo insists on making every fucking person knows every fucking detail about TDK...AFTER THE RELEASE 5 MONTHS AGO!

If you liked the movie...fine, good for you, so did I. I on the other hand am not trying to force the film down the throats of people 5 months after the film came out by once again posting a stupid non important article that does nothing to inform me of Bats 3, or future projects that Hollywood has on the horizon.

So once again, I am going back to empiremovies.com. They know how to shut the fuck up about a movie after it has come out.

Well said randomerratum...

This is a movie fan (fanatic) website, and news like this is fair game. If you're sick of TDK, then don't read the article. Obviously anything with Heath's name in the article is most likely related. I only check out the titles that interest me... and TDK still does. Great flick.

Also... Ledger's performance is very noteworthy, especially due to his unfortunate death. This role made me a fan of Heath. I had never seen any of his other stuff, and this one made me go back and watch his other

Also... Ledger's performance is very noteworthy, especially due to his unfortunate death. This role made me a fan of Heath. I had never seen any of his other stuff, and this one made me go back and watch his other movies. He's a completely different character in each flick. Hope he takes home the gold.

I'm really quite sick of hearing...

people talk of how sick they are of hearing about TDK. In fact, it's more obnoxious to point out that we're still talking about it then the fact that we are. I don't care who you are - TDK was a fantastic breath of fresh air. It's too few and far between that a movie treats the GENERAL audiences with some respect and intelligence. There's an easy answer for those who've grown tired of TDK discussion... don't participate. Ignore the articles, don't be a fucking baby about it and move on. It

Close the book on the Dark Knight, it won't win Best picture. The day a comic book movie beats out a biopic of a gay politician, is when i fear the world.

Damn, I mean I dig the bats and all, but the over-praise that gets heaped on Heath is kinda weird. It just smacks of fanboy's squeeling while they cream themselves. Sure it was a good performance, but damn, it let's not denigrate the other great performances this year.

I'm sorry, but why is this an article? Howard makes one exaggeration to commend Ledger's performance and this site goes wild.

And take a closer look at that quote. He didn't say whoever wins it should donate it to Ledger's family as you so blatantly stated. He simply said that HE would. Which, by the looks of it, was just a way of stressing how amazing his performance was.

why the hell not?

Why not report on what the man said in regard to the awards he announced? Howard presented but he's not allowed to have an opinion?!? Personally I find it newsworthy that if nominated himself that he would accept it in Ledger's honor if he won. I recall that the last Best Actor Oscar winner had the same foresight. I say right on! Honor the man behind the true clown prince of crime. Mark the moment and admit Heath's performance rocked them all. Stretched his shoes? It knocked Nicholson's socks

"Howard thinks Ledger's performance is so far ahead everything else this year that whoever does win the award should donate it to Ledger's family."

According to the quotes provided you're simply being a drama queen, Barna, because Howard only spoke for himself. I'm all for jokes and facetious truth stretching, but that's simply bad journalism, done purposely, and you know better.

LET'S BE FAIR ...

... I've seen all performances from all Golden Globe nominated actors (leading and supporting roles) and NO ONE came even close to what Heath Ledger did in The Dark Knight. Period.

Hmmm...

Im prolly gonna get raped for saying this, but I don't think this is news worthy info. An actor liked The Dark Knight....so? I think Heath deserves to win, but so do alot of people, so are we gonna do news stories about all them too? "Kiera Knightly thinks Heath Ledger should win Golden Globe."
