I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to taint the impact of Heath Ledger’s death with the juxtaposition of one of the most bizarre Oscar nominations in recent memory. I just wanted to fully express what a bizarre, mind-boggling day this has been. I’m still a bit too shell shocked to write a proper eulogy (for Heath, not for the Oscars, although that demise is surely imminent). I’m always a little shaken when someone who was born in the same year I was dies a tragic death. Suffice it to say that Heath seemed like a good person, and will be missed by fans and cinephiles alike. My sympathies and well wishes go out to his family, Michelle Williams, and little Matilda Rose.
