way into this photo gallery... again?... It's for sure that you just can't trust
those Ballroom dancers! ....)

(The Brokeback Mountain Photo Gallery & tribute to Heath Ledger)

Oscar-nominated Heath Ledger
1979 - 2008
So many of us were truly devastated by this incredible loss. Never before have two actors on their way to the top of their game accepted the challenges and potential repercussions of playing gay characters in such honest and revealing roles as Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhall did in 'Brokeback Mountain'. And in in the process never before have two actors been so incredibly successful in portraying the true plight that so many in the LGBT community have endured throughout their lives, while bringing that plight to the awareness of mainstream America in such a uniquely beautiful and touching love story. The talents of this gifted actor through this classic motion picture performance and others will continue to be remembered and missed by us all.

During the January 28th, 2008 SAG Awards ceremony, the amazingly gracious, talented and selfless Best Actor winner Daniel Day-Lewis (for 'There Will Be Blood') unexpectedly dedicated his award to Heath Ledger, noting that "His performance in 'Brokeback Mountain' was perfect". Day-Lewis later noted that while he had never actually met Ledger, his death was all that he could think about for the past few days. His dedication speech can be viewed below.
