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.
I love reading celebrity blogs. Its so weird to read them and realize that they are real people who also become star struck at times. Take the Jonas Brothers’ blog – they mention that they rushed to the special concert for the Nominations of the GRAMMY AWARDS. They stated,
“We knew that John Mayer was performing so we really wanted to go. We finished filming our TV show for the day and raced to the awards so that we wouldn’t miss the concert.”
So what have they been so busy with:
- The American Music Awards – where they won an award
- House of Blues Free Concert – also performing were Demi Lovato, Dan Akroyd, Jesse McCartney, Franki J, Jordin Sparks, and Honor Society
- The Tonight Show
- The Jimmy Kimmel Show
- Thanksgiving Half Time Show at the Dallas Cowboys game
- Good Morning America
- Las Vegas for 2 concerts
- Nomination ceremony for the Grammy awards – where they were nominated by there fellow musicians for Best New Artist
Wow – that is CRAZY busy. But loads of fun.
Besides all that – they are also busy filming their new TV show Jonas.
They also made sure to mention that they recently heard a rumor that one of them was leaving the band – IT IS NOT TRUE!! In their own words:
“We love what we are doing and hope to do it together for a long time.”
Another great thing about reading the celebrity blogs – you can find out the truth – no doubts!!
