The second Posthumous Academy Award ever

WORLD'S SECOND
POSTHUMOUS ACADEMY AWARD

THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST

Who received the world's second posthumous Academy Award?

It’s not every year that we see the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hands out a posthumous Oscar.

In fact until recently it had only been done once before so it’s something that’s reserved for only very special actors that played a very special role.

And so is the case for Heath Ledger, whose role as the Joker in The Dark Knight earned him an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, a little over a year after his death. At the ceremony, Ledger’s mother, father, and sister accepted the award on his behalf and the golden statue will go to Heath’s daughter Matilda when she turns 18. Heath Ledger won his posthumous Oscar at the 81st Academy Awards that were held on February 22, 2009.
