One might think that the entertainment community would be unable to ignore the death of Heath Ledger – and they’d be right.
Despite fan protests online after the Dark Knight actor’s passing wasn’t included during the Screen Actors Guild Awards’ In Memoriam piece, Heath wasn’t snubbed – his death was marked during last year’s awards tribute.
Heath, who won Best Supporting Actor at last night’s SAG Awards for his brilliantly creepy portrayal of the Joker, died just before last year’s awards and was added at the last minute to the tribute reel.
"The unfortunate news of Heath Ledger’s death came just prior to the 14th Annual SAG Awards last year. Deeply saddened at the news, we included Mr. Ledger in last year’s memorial package," said SAG publicist Rosalind Jarrett.
