In a deeply emotional moment in an otherwise lighthearted ceremony, Ledger’s win, for his role as the Joker in the Batman film “The Dark Knight,” reminded Hollywood what it had lost – a terrific young actor who had yet to fulfill his potential.
The announcement of Ledger’s name by presenter Demi Moore was met with a standing ovation by the crowd, followed by “Dark Knight” director Christopher Nolan’s short but moving speech.
“I accept this with an awful mixture of sadness and intense pride,” said Nolan, adding that Ledgers’ death a year ago at age 28 meant “a hole had been ripped in the future of cinema.” NY daily News
My Own comment:
This was not a surprise or “unexpected” as NY daily news said which i did not copy there, heath deserved this for the incredible amazing performance during all his career year and especially Joker at Dark Knight. Simply beyond words!
