Charlotte’s Homage to Heath Ledger

Since 1988, I have religiously watched the Academy Award ceremonies. From 1990 until 2001, I hosted a big party. Not Vanity Fair big, but big enough that friends I hadn’t seen in a year knew to just stop by. Until 2006, I had seen a lot of the movies. You all know why we haven’t seen so many movies in the past few years. I used to be able to predict many of the awards, based on my opinion and my actual knowledge of the films. Now I guess and have a lot of fun doing it.

Heath Ledger’s win was no guess and no surprise. And Dark Knight is one of a handful of nominated films I saw this year. I also saw the set being built in Philippe’s office building. So…

In honor of Heath Ledger’s posthumous win this evening, I wanted to share this picture of Charlotte, our little joker (not evil in the slightest, by the way). She is honoring a man she’s never heard of who was brilliant in a movie she never saw. But, it gives me an excuse to post this classic photo!
