worst best picture winners
This year’s Academy Awards mark the 82nd time that an Oscar statuette has been awarded for Best Picture.

Will 'The Dark Knight' Need Darker Villians For Future Films?

July 17th, 2008 9:20am EDT
The Dark Knight
Purple suit, caked-white face, delirious, hand-in-the-cookie-jar grin: the Joker. In 1989's Batman, Jack Nicholson played the role as a coked out 'toon far past loony, at ease in the company of rapists or ravers.

In honor of Ledger's, not t...
