Williams Won't Accept Ledger's Awards
HEATH LEDGER's ex-fiancee MICHELLE WILLIAMS has denied she was set to accept any awards the late star wins for his role in THE DARK KNIGHT.
Ledger's performance as The Joker - the last movie he completed before his drug overdose death in January (08) - is expected to earn him a clutch of posthumous prizes during the forthcoming awards season.
He is already nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe, and is hotly tipped to become the first posthumous acting Oscar winner since Peter Finch in 1977.
Williams - the mother of Ledger's daughter Matilida - was thought to be among those contending to accept awards on her ex's behalf, along with his father Kim.
But the Brokeback Mountain actress won't be involved. Her representative says, "No discussions have been made for Michelle to accept nor are there any plans to take part."
