This Week’s Top News:

Heath Ledger: 1979-2008
Heath Ledger, star of films including Brokeback Mountain, 10 Things I Hate About You, and the forthcoming The Dark Knight, was found dead this afternoon. He was 28.

Oscar Nominations Announced. Full List Inside.
With the writer’s strike going on, just how the AMPAS will present the Oscars is still unknown. For now, though, we got the who and the what. Awards heavyweights No Country for Old Men and There Will Be Blood lead the way with eight nominations each, including Best Picture. Other contenders in the category include the Big Sweeping Romance (Atonement), the Annual Beloved Fox Searchlight Indie (Juno), and the Dark Horse (Michael Clayton).

In a mind-boggling convergence of sci-fi pre-release buzz, new stills from Star Trek XI and X-Files 2 were released yesterday — and since we love nothing more than a good old-fashioned geekout, we’ve got ’em all right here for you to look at.
