Posthumous Oscar for Ledger

Exactly a year to the day since Heath Ledger died of a prescription drug overdose, has received a nomination for Best Supporting Actor at the 2009 Academy Award Celebration.
His death at age 28 sent shockwaves through the entertainment industry, and left fans mourning a premature ending to an already promising acting career.
It has been speculated that the rigorous demands of portraying the Joker in the Dark Knight led him to bouts of insomnia which were the reason he required prescriptions for anti-anxiety medication as well as pain killers.
The performance was indeed globally popular, assisting the Dark Knight in earning top film honors and nearly $1 billion in ticket sales.

Heath Ledger has already received a Golden Globe award, and a BAFTA nomination for best supporting actor. An Oscar for the same seems unquestionable.
NW Limited…History in VogueTM has honored Ledger with very small editions of signed, framed pieces in their DC Comics line. Many of them can be seen here.

American pride-made in ??

These patriotic shirts would seem to be the real deal. Proudly displaying the stars and stripes, our American flag is a popular fashion statement.
Americans love their country and enjoy showing it.
We thought it would be interesting to share these sharp-looking shirts with you.
The first, a youth shirt, is labelled “Quizz” of New Jersey. The second one’s a “Roper” brand and the implication of the American West is not easy to miss.


Where are these shirts made?

India and China, respectively.

Picture them worn at picnics, barbecues, Memorial Day weekend, the Fourth of July…to show your pride in being American.
Wouldn’t it be best if it were an all-American product?
To wear knowing that Americans were benefitting from every level of manufacture of the item symbolizing our country from cotton growers to button makers right down to the men and women that sew the label inside and package them for retail sale?

Heath Ledger won a posthumous Golden Globe award for his supporting role in Batman:
The Dark Knight. The movie has the honor of being the second-highest-grossing film in Hollywood (Titanic is first). 
The film’s director, Chris Nolan, accepted the honor for Heath’s role as The Joker.
The question remains: Will Ledger win an Oscar for this unparalleled performance?
