He won!

Heath Ledger won a Golden Globe for his performance as the Joker! I sort of thought he might, given the way the awards were designated (putting him in the Supporting Actor category, as opposed to Best Actor, where Mickey Rourke was a sentimental favorite).

It makes me happy for a variety of reasons. First, I feel like the best performance deserves to win (I know, what a concept), and his was just astonishing. Also, I was pleased to see that the fantasy/superhero film curse didn't pose a hurdle. Finally, it bodes well for the Oscars. I seem to recall reading that only one regular Oscar (not a special memorial one) has ever been awarded posthumously, and he might be the second to make it. (Although I wouldn't be sorry to see Robert Downey, Jr. get it for Tropic Thunder.)
