It has been a year since the tragic and untimely death of Heath Ledger.  He was found dead at 28 from an accidental  overdose in his SoHo apartment January 22, 2008.  The year anniversary of his passing also coincides with the announcement of the nominations for the 2009  Academy Awards, for which Heath is predicted to be nominated for best supporting actor for his wicked portrayal as the Joker in The Dark Knight.

Earlier this month during the Golden Globe Awards he was honored posthumously for his role in The Dark Knight.

“We are overjoyed for him,” his father Kim Ledger told PEOPLE of his son’s win for best supporting actor in a drama.

His brilliant career was cut short but his contributions continue to be honored.
