I wish this post were about the Academy Awards noms, really.
But this morning, as you probably know by now, Heath Ledger was found dead in his New York appartment. He was 28 years old. His latest film, The Dark Knight, is scheduled to be released this summer. He leaves behind a 2-year-old daughter, Mathilda.

I’m pretty devastated. I know it’s silly, but as I watched the news, it was difficult not to feel overwhelmed. Such a promising talent, and an unforgettable performance in Brokeback Mountain. All my heart goes out to his family and friends. I dunno why, but it’s affected me a lot.

Next up –as soon as I’m back home: the Academy Awards noms, the most anticipated films of 2008 and reviews of the films I’ve seen lately.
