Heath Ledger is convinced he won't win the Best Actor Oscar next month (MAR06), because the other nominees are too good.

The Australian actor - nominated for his role in BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN - is up against Philip Seymour Hoffman (CAPOTE), Joaquin Phoenix (Walk the Line), Terrence Howard (HUSTLE + FLOW) and David Strathairn (GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK).

He said at the presentation of his movie CANDY at the Berlin International Film Festival yesterday (15FEB06), "There are so many great actors who are nominated and who all deserve the award.

"Let's wait and see who will win. Of course, I'm proud to be nominated. But it's already great to be involved in a movie that wins so many prizes and is received so well."
