Film News .... Oscar and Obits
In film news today, the joy of the Oscar nominations took a somber turn when the news of Heath Ledger's death hit the wires this afternoon. A talented young actor who won my heart years ago through his wonderful performances and shy, polite manner in interviews. Though he was amazing in dramatic roles in Brokeback Mountain and Candy, I have really enjoyed him in more cheeky roles in A Knight's Tale, Casanova and The Brothers Grimm. Truly sad news for the entertainment community, and obviously even more so, for his family and friends. Tough news.
