Daniel Day-Lewis Honors Heath Ledger

|

Last night’s Screen Actors’ Guild Awards were a sad, somber affair, colored by the shocking death of Heath Ledger and the ongoing writers’ strike. Daniel Day-Lewis, the brilliant Irishman who’s once again at the fore for his role in There Will Be Blood, picked up the show’s best actor award, and dedicated it to Ledger. (Check the clip above for one of the most moving and graceful acceptance speeches, perhaps ever.) Elsewhere, the odds-on Oscars favorites were given their due, including No Country for Old Men for best picture, Julie Christie for best actress, Javier Bardem for best supporting actor, and Ruby Dee for best supporting actress. As for television, Tina Fey won for best female in a comedy series. 30 Rock really is the best thing that isn’t currently on television, isn’t it?
