Christian Bale paid tribute to the late Heath Ledger after ‘The Dark Knight’ scooped five prizes at the People’s Choice Awards. The star – who plays the Caped Crusader in the Batman blockbuster – dedicated the accolades to his co-star, who portrayed the villainous Joker, during an acceptance speech at the event last night (07.01.09). He said: “On behalf of all of the cast from the movie, thank you very much to the fans. Here’s to Heath.” The film – the highest grossing of 2008 – won awards for Best Movie, Best Action Movie, Favourite Cast, Best Superhero and Best On-screen Match Up for Christian and Heath.

Meanwhile, ‘Four Christmases’ star Reese Witherspoon was delighted with her award for Favourite Female Movie Star. She said at the Shrine Auditorium ceremony in Los Angeles: “It’s such a great way to start the New Year. A couple of years ago, I won a great award for singing in a movie. This year, I won an award for having a baby throw up on me.” The 35th annual awards – which was hosted by singer and actress Queen Latifah – also saw comedienne and TV personality Ellen DeGeneres honoured in the Best Talk Show Host category. Many of the winners praised the awards on the night for being one of the few which relies on votes from the public.
