At the ceremony Heath's sister Kate went into rapture over Michelle's contribution in bringing up Matilda, without seeking help from anybody.

And speaking of Ledger's recent Oscar nomination for his role in 'The Dark Knight', Kate adds, "What an unbelievable legacy he has left for Matilda and our family." Ledger died from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs at his New York apartment last year on 22 January 08.
