Heath Ledger killed himself.  While some mourn his death, the rest of us must not celebrate his faux life by giving him an Academy Award for his disgusting role in The Dark Knight.

Awards are for honoring the living, not celebrating the dead, and to give Heath Ledger the highest award for dead acting is an insult to those who choose life over death and light over darkness.

If people want to honor a corpse — visit a gravesite and leave bushels of flowers and ribbons — but if you want to honor the work of the living, save your awards for those who can certainly benefit from the live adoration of their peers.
