Legendary Film Director ROBERT ALTMAN Dies

One of my all-time favorite directors ROBERT ALTMAN died in a hospital last night at the age of 81. No cause of death has been announced, though Altman had underwent a heart transplant some 10 years ago.

Of his dense back catalogue of films, some of my favorites include "Nashville", "Come Back To the Five & Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean" and the sprawling 1994 L.A. opus, "Short Cuts".

Most recently, Altman directed the nostalgic comedy, "A Prairie Home Companion", starring MERYL STREEP, LILY TOMLIN, VIRGINIA MADSEN, and LINDSEY LOHAN.

Altman accumulated five Best Director Oscar nominations in his time, winning none. Though he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Oscar a couple years ago.
