Heath Ledger’s ‘The Dark Knight’ Joker featured in Oscars ad

The Oscars air live on February 26th and today a new ad campaign was revealed. The advertisements all feature the words “We Showed You” followed by a reference to a great movie of the past. One of those great movies happens to be The Dark Knight, and Heath Ledger as The Joker is featured prominently. As I’m sure you know, Ledger won a posthumous Oscar in 2009 for his brilliant performance as The Joker in The Dark Knight.

Comic book movies aren’t typically given any Oscar attention, but Heath Ledger and The Dark Knight shook up the award show in 2009. Because of The Dark Knight’s omission in the “Best Picture” category, up to 10 films are now  nominated instead of 5. Do you think Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, or Gary Oldman will deliver an Oscar worthy performance in The Dark Knight Rises?
