Heath Ledger Wins Posthumous Golden Globe

Heath Ledger Wins Posthumous Golden Globe

At the 2009 Golden Globes on Sunday Heath Ledger won for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his role as The Joker in The Dark Knight.

The film’s director, Christopher Nolan, accepted the statuette from presenter Demi Moore and said “All of us who worked with Heath accept this with an awful mixture of sadness and incredible pride. After Heath passed on, you saw a hole ripped in the future of cinema — but with the extraordinary response to his work that we’ve seen all over the world, I, for one, start to be able to look a bit less at that gap in the future and a little bit more at the incredible place in the history of cinema that he built for himself with his talent and with his dedication to his artistry. For any of us lucky enough to work with him or to have enjoyed his performance, he will be eternally missed, but he will never be forgotten.”

“We are overjoyed for him,” his father Kim Ledger told People. “It’s wonderful.”
