Heath Ledger was honored by the Australian Film Institute over the weekend. Heath was named best actor for his role in The Dark Knight. Ledger's dad accepted his award, along with his mother Sally and his sister Kate.
"It's been without a doubt the most difficult year, losing such a loved family member," said Kate Ledger. "We are so proud of him and humbly accept this award on behalf of his beautiful daughter, who we will cherish forever."
Heath's mom said, "We are immensely proud of him, not only for his professional achievements, but in the way he truly cherished his family, friends and his precious Matilda." She added, "Heath was never one to accept mediocrity, he put his heart and soul into achieving what he believed was required and followed his passions with great enthusiasm and an insatiable curiosity."
