Award number two.
Award number two for Ledger's Joker Late Australian actor
Heath Ledger has received a second posthumous award, as the Los Angeles Film Critics Association honoured his performance in Batman blockbuster
'The Dark Knight'. Ledger is a heavy favourite to land a best
supporting actor Oscar for his spellbinding portrayal of arch-villain
the Joker (right) in the film, which shattered a series of box office
records after its release in July. Ledger, who died from an overdose of
prescription drugs in January, aged 28, won the Australian Film
Institute's international best actor award on Saturday. Perth-born
Ledger gained international stardom and was nominated for an Oscar for
his role in the 2005 film 'Brokeback Mountain'. If Ledger is
honoured at next February's Academy Awards, he would be only the
second posthumous Oscar-winner after Peter Finch, who triumphed in 1976
for his iconic role in 'Network'.
