Time for a poll: Is it really Heath Ledger’s Oscar?

If I were an Academy voter, I’d pick Ledger for best supporting actor. (And, if I were an Academy voter, I’d be speaking up about “Revolutionary Road” being ignored, and about that idiotic banter all the presenters make at the ceremony every year, and about how silly people look on the red carpet next to those weird giant Oscars . . . but I digress.) But I’m not an Academy voter. Neither, in all likelihood, are you, but let’s try voting anyway. Do you think (as noted in the previous post) that Philip Seymour Hoffman has a chance? Did Robert Downey Jr. dazzle you in “Tropic Thunder”? (Me too.) Do you think Josh Brolin or Michael Shannon deserve an upset win? Cast your vote:
Who should win the Oscar for best supporting actor?
