A break into our Johnny world to a very sad news. The actor Heath Ledger was found dead in his apartment today. The Australian-born actor was 28.
Ledger’s respectable filmography includes roles in films such as Candy, Monster’s Ball, 10 Things I Hate About You, Lords of Dogtown, I’m Not There, and Brokeback Mountain, for which he earned a Golden Globe- as well as an Academy Award nomination in 2006. His last onscreen appearance looks to be the role of Joker in the much anticipated Batman Begins sequel, The Dark Knight, pending a July 2008 U.S. release.
My deepest condolences to his family, loved ones and loyal fans. It’s a tremendous loss, I’m really shocked. RIP, Heath…
As you can see, there’s a new layout up. With the new layout, there’s a lot of updates as the new career section, and the info section totally updated!
I’m still fixing some broken images, but you can browse around to see all changes. I’ll be finishing the career section (I’ll need to finish the 90’s and 00’s movies info) and do a new gallery layout, but I’m proud to say that this site is now updated.
Enjoy, and don’t forget to tell me what do you think about.
Johnny got another nomination from Academy Awards, for his Sweeney Todd!
He will dispute with: Daniel Day Lewis, George Clooney, Tommy Lee Jones and Viggo Mortensen.
Congratulations, and go Johnny!
Johnny Depp received his third Academy Award nomination for best actor for his role as the title character in Tim Burton’s gothic musical “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” though no nods went to the film, its director or co-star Helena Bonham-Carter.
The nominees for the 80th Academy Awards were announced Tuesday from Beverly Hills, California, with Johnny Depp seeing his portrayal of the psychotic criminal whom he managed to make endearing to the audiences receive a nomination in the best actor category.
Depp, previously nominated for “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” in 2004 and “Finding Neverland” in 2005, will compete against George Clooney in “Michael Clayton,” Daniel Day-Lewis in “There Will Be Blood,” Tommy Lee Jones in “In the Valley of Elah” and Viggo Mortensen in “Eastern Promises.”
While “Sweeney Todd” was not nominated in the best picture category, the trophy will be fought over between “Michael Clayton,” “There Will Be Blood,” “Atonement,” “Juno” and “No Country for Old Men.”
The organizers of the Academy Awards ceremony have been adamant that the event will take place regardless of the ongoing WGA strike, on the scheduled date of Feb. 24 at Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre.
Jon Stewart is scheduled to host.

Golden Globe winner Johnny Depp attended the Paris premiere of SWEENEY TODD: THE DEMON BARBER OF FLEET STREET last night, January 16th, and signed autographs for fans waiting outside the theater. I added 38 pictures from Johnny and Tim.
Also I had forgot to add the pictures from Tokyo press conference, so added 50 new ones.
Note: I’m working in a total revamp of this site, with a complete update of all pages. This site is SO outdate, some pages was last updated in 2004, some pages never was updated since this site open doors. You can expect a BIG surprise when I finish it.
Johnny is on the cover of the Feb. 2008 French Premiere magazine. The picture isn’t new, but the title couldn’t be more right: “Johnny, the magnificent”.
Also, in the new issue of Radio Times:
Steady ladies! This week we’re chatting to none other than Hollywood heart-throb Johnny Depp, who’s soon to be back on the big screen wielding yet more sharp implements as he takes on the role of the demon barber of Fleet Street, Sweeney Todd.
He and director Tim Burton join us on the eve of their South Bank Show appearance to try to explain where their magical outsider chemistry comes from. And yes, there are pictures…
Thanks to part-time poet and emma, from the JD-Zone Board, for the heads up!
“I would like to thank my beloved friends at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for bestowing such an honor on me. It is a humbling experience, especially in the company of such talent. For many years the HFPA has supported my work and for that I have always been truly grateful. While this is indeed a happy day for me, I am overjoyed at the recognition the film as a whole is receiving. TIM is a dear friend and a true artist whose vision and skill inspire us all. He is a genius. Without his unwavering trust and support, I would not be anywhere near where I am today. Also, big thanks and respect to HELENA, whose simply staggering performance as Mrs. Lovett is a wonder to behold. I must send a behemoth salute to the wonderful crew and cast of ‘Sweeney Todd’ and all at Dreamworks/Paramount and Warner Bros. Pictures. In addition, I’d also like to extend my sincere gratitude to, first and foremost, my cherished friend and agent of forever ago, TRACEY JACOBS; the extraordinary man and producer, RICHARD ZANUCK; the mastermind STEPHEN SONDHEIM; and, of course, my precious family, VANESSA, LILY-ROSE and JACK, for all of their love, support and pure and absolute happiness everyday. Overall, I believe it to be a proud achievement for everyone involved and on behalf of us all, I thank you.”
This was posted @ The Insider, I was so curious (and certainly you, too) to read what Johnny said about his GG. Go Johnny, you deserve it.
Johnny Depp secretly visited Great Ormond Street Hospital yesterday to donate £1 million of his own money to thank staff for saving his daughter’s life.
He arrived unexpectedly at the London children’s hospital where eight-year-old Lily-Rose was treated last year when her kidneys failed.
Last week he invited five Great Ormond Street doctors and nurses to the party for the London premiere of his film Sweeney Todd.
And on November 29, unknown to the public, Depp spent four hours at the hospital telling bedtime stories to patients dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow after having his Pirates Of The Caribbean costume flown over from Los Angeles.
Congratulations to Mr. Depp, for his Best Actor, Musical or Comedy Golden Globe Award for his role in Sweeney Todd!
Sweeney Todd was also awarded as Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy.
