The lobbying blitz for awards season has begun in the movie industry. I think that while nominations or wins for Best Picture and Best Director (for Christopher Nolan) would do a lot to acknowledge the quality and the impact of “The Dark Knight”, the one that really matters – for fans of the movie, the crew, and the industry at large – will be whether Heath Ledger gets Best Supporting Actor for his showstopping interpretation of the Joker. This is probably the most dominant individual performance I’ve seen in a film in years where the character steals the show in every scene he’s in. The only other one that comes to mind from the past two decades is Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs.
