Ledger 'Surprised' By Globe Nominations

Australian star HEATH LEDGER was shocked to hear of his Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor yesterday (13DEC05), because he never dreamed BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN would receive so much attention.

The actor and his fiancee MICHELLE WILLIAMS are both up for Globes at the January (06) ceremony, as well as director ANG LEE for Best Director and Best Motion Picture - Drama.

Ledger enthuses, "It's a real honour to be a part of a movie that has been received as this has.

"I guess I had high hopes for it. I don't have many expectations for the films I'm in or the performances I'm giving. I try not to think of that if I can. I just try to knuckle down.

"I'm proud of it. I think people should see it. It's important."
