Posthumous Award: Heath Ledger, The Dark Knight

(This is a debate which has happened a number of times before as to the fairness to the memory of an artist by having them be nominated for a performance/work which was their last. It was decided to allow for a posthumous award in such cases independent of a nominated award. This was usually debated in cases where the nominee did not win, or didn't have much of a chance in their final work (most notably when Bergman was nominated and lost for his final film Saraband, it didn't feel right to do that). While Ledger would have won, it seemed like the time to instate such a rule)
