Heath's Baby Mama Won't Thank the Academy

12/15/2008 5:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Cross Michelle Williams off the list of people who will accept awards on behalf of Heath Ledger if/when he cleans up during awards season.

A rep for Williams tells TMZ, "No discussions have been made for Michelle to accept nor are there any plans to take part."

There's a reported debate about who should have the honor, should Heath pull in some hardware for his role as the Joker in "The Dark Knight." Besides Michelle, several people are rumored to be in the race to accept -- including Christian Bale, "Dark Knight" director Christopher Nolan and Heath's father.

I think Michelle and Mitilda -Heaths Daughter should accept the awards in honor of Heath. Maybe Matilda will remember that honor later in life of her father that she was apart of honoring him in such a way.

the mother of his child ("baby mama" is so cheap) shouldn't have to consider accepting. Ithink the most appropriate is his father and possibly the cast of the movie. If it was his wife, tehn that is another story or if his daughter was older that would be appropriate too. But of course, appropriate things do not sell articles and gossip.

Everyone, move on.
His parents would be the best choice; Ledger's family, Williams and their daughter should be invited as guests.
That's if he gets the nomination; looks like he might/will.

It would not be appropriate for Michelle to accept awards on his behalf. They were never married to aech other and they were no longer engaged or even seeing each other at the time of his death. It should be a blood relative or the producer, director or another star of the movie.

He didn't win yet. Just have the MC accept it on his behalf if he wins. Worry about it later.

I think Jake Gyllenhaal would be a great idea. They were good friends after all.

Michelle should be the one to accept and that they were not married was Heath's fault for she would have married him when he stopped taking drugs. His family are major weird and don't deserve respect. They only want money and his fame. His little girl is his family thus her mother he loved till his death , she and his daughter should represent him.

hmm ha    

I love Michelle Williams but really, why does everybody fuss over her when it comes to Heath's death. Yes, she is his daughters mother, BUT Michelle has a current boyfriend and did so even when Heath passed away. They have not been a couple for a while now. Honestly, it should be his mother and father to accept if he does win.

Michelle Williams had no relationship with him when he died so it should be his father instead

Giving an award just becasue someone is dead is just plain wrong. And let's face it, if he wins that would be the only reason. His performance as the Joker was just plain ignorant and stupid and that's one of the reasons I have placed it on my list of worst movies ever made. The only performance that was worse than his portrayal of the Joker is the actor that tried to be Batman.

What the heck are you trying to say? If you are trying to use the English language, then use it properly. Whatever language it is that you are using is unrecognizable, causes you to look like a total idiot and makes no one care about what you think, so your opinion is pointless. If your opinion is pointless, you might as well not exist - think about it.

If you were using a foreign language: Spanish, French, Portuguese or some other recognizable language - it doesn't have to be English - that is fine. However, the language you are using is NOT a foreign language, just ignorance.
