Heath Ledger wins “Outstanding Actor in a Supporting Role” at Screen Actors Guild Awards January 26th, 2009

Last night was the 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, usu­ally seen as a very good indi­ca­tion of who the Oscar win­ners shall be. Heath Ledger’s The Joker pulled through fend­ing off com­pe­ti­tion from the likes of Downey Jr. and Josh Brolin:

Out­stand­ing Actor In A Sup­port­ing Role

Heath Ledger — The Dark Knight
Phillip Sey­mour Hoff­man — Doubt
Dev Patel — Slum­dog Mil­lion­aire
Robert Downey Jr. — Tropic Thun­der
Josh Brolin — Milk
WINNER: Heath Ledger — The Dark Knight

The signs are look­ing good, and given TDK’s Best Pic­ture and Best Direc­tor snubs, all our chips and Heath Ledger’s are in on this one.

TDK also brought home a sec­ond award from the SAGs for “Out­stand­ing Per­for­mance by a Stunt Ensem­ble in a Motion Pic­ture”.
