If you missed the Golden Globes last night, Heath Ledger won “Best Supporting Actor” for his FANTASTIC performance as the Joker, in the Dark Knight. Who will get the honor of holding the Golden Globe statue? Will it be his father, mother, or daughter Matilda?
His mom Sally Bell, for one, figures Ledger’s daughter Matilda will be the keeper of her daddy’s hardware one way.
“I should imagine that eventually [the Globe] will be going to Matilda,” Bell tells People. “At this stage she is only so young, but down the track she will have all these things. It will belong to her because she is part of him.”
“It is such a fantastic and wonderful legacy for his daughter. Matilda will have so many people who will be able to speak to her about her father’s abilities and [the] respect he had in the industry. That is such a wonderful legacy to leave.”
Hopefully, his family will keep their promise and give the Golden Globe to Matilda one day. Astrologically, it looks like he’ll receive an Oscar as well. Both well deserved! What a wonderful actor, if you haven’t seen the Dark Knight yet, be sure and rent the DVD.
