The praise for Heath Ledger's perfomance in The Dark Knight continues to flow.

One of the late actor's co-stars in the latest Batman movie has gone on record saying he thinks Ledger should be nominated for an Academy Award. 

"I think Heath will surely get a posthumous nomination for an Academy Award," Michael Caine said late last week at Grauman's Chinese Theatre. "He was incredible [and] he was amazing, And I think he will get it. It's an incredible performance, just wonderful."

The Dark Knight Quotes

I had a vision, of a world without Batman. The mob ground out a little profit and the police tried to shut them down, one block at a time. And it was so... boring. I've had a change of heart. I don't want Mr.Reese spoiling everything, but why should I have all the fun? Let's give someone else a chance. If Coleman Reese isn't dead in sixty minutes then I blow up a hospital.

The Joker

Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now...and so we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector...a dark knight.
