Is This Heath Ledger’s Next Oscar Clip?

The Playlist and Movieline direct us to the first, sixteen-second clip of Heath Ledger's performance in this fall's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, the Terry Gilliam film he'd half completed at the time of his death. In it, Ledger spouts Gilliam-y dialogue ("Can you put a price on your dreams?") while wearing one of those creepy long-nose masks popularized by extras in the orgy scene from Eyes Wide Shut. But is it good enough for the second posthumous Oscar that Gilliam has already announced plans to push him for? We'd probably need to see at least another fourteen seconds.
