Jude Law is going to be judging the 2010 The Australians in Film Heath Ledger Scholarship, which is awarded to an emerging Australian actor who wants to pursue a career in America.

Law, who was one of the actors who replaced Heath in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, said in a statement, "I am delighted and honored to do what I can to keep Heath's legacy alive. He was a brilliant actor and a wonderful man and it is only fitting that this scholarship has been developed in his name."

This year, Oliver Ackland won the $10,000 prize and Qantas ticket to the states. Next year's finalists will be announced in February.
