Michelle Williams still asks why Heath Ledger died

LEISURE CANDY PREMIEREThe 30 year-old actress, whose romance with Ledger blossomed on the set of “Brokeback Mountain” in roles for which they both received Oscar nominations (he won supporting actor), said she had found “meaning in things and people and relationships that have sprung up and friendships that have strengthened.

You should correct the misstatement of facts in this article.

Heath Ledger did NOT win an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for Brokeback Mountain, he didn’t win anything at all, though many of us believe he should have. He was nominated in the Best Actor category but did not win.


Ouch. This was a double mistake, since the nomination was for best actor, not supporting actor, and he didn’t win. We corrected, of course: GBU Editor

I was really miffed when I saw that another Bruce Lee had left us just after the completion of a major career making movie role had transpired. This has to stop! Jimmy Hendrix,Pete Duel,the guy who fired a blank into his temple and the wad penetrated his skull cavity and D.O.A.(not Pete duel but a crime drama sitcom where the guy had everything clicking for him and made a fatal joking error). Stupid!I could do a little research and come up with a list that would boggle your mind,but A.A. calls and life is so rich now that I’m focused! Further comment is welcomed?
