Today marks the 1st anniversary of Heath Ledger's untimely passing. Ironically, tragically, it was one of his best years, professionally.

Ledger's body was discovered a year ago by his housekeeper in his SoHo loft at 3:31 p.m. after he failed to show for a massage appointment. An autopsy revealed Heath died of a prescription drug overdose.

With the posthumous release of The Dark Knight and several projects yet to be unleashed, Ledger seems closer to us than ever.

With a fresh Golden Globe to his credit, Heath was just honored with an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor and is sure to leave his mark on the upcoming Oscars.
