Heath Ledger wins posthumous Oscar for 'The Dark Knight'

Heath Ledger's family -- dad Kim Ledger, mom Sally and sister Kate -- accept the best supporting actor statuette on his 3-year-old daughter's behalf. "Heath, we both knew what you had created in the Joker was extraordinarily special and had even talked about being here on this very day," said his sister. "We really wish you were, but we proudly accept this award on behalf of your beautiful Matilda. Thank you."
