It's just so sad!
We're all still shocked by the death of the world's first Pulitzer Prize winning film critic, but many celebz — including Roger Ebert's friends, colleagues, and the U.S. President — are already expressing their condolences via Twitter.
Here are but a few remembrances:

We lost a legend today. The renowned film critic Roger Ebert passed after an arduous battle with cancer. And yet, his influence in film and criticism remains as visible as it ever has been.
President Obama released a statement upon the announcement of Roger's death, saying:

We are so sad to say Roger Ebert has passed.
The legendary film critic and author struggled valiantly through several years of cancer, and recently announced a recurrence.
It seems he finally succumbed today.
Ebert and his thumb were famous for strong, loud opinions. He gave them for the Chicago Sun-Times for 46 years.
He never stopped writing his reviews even when hosting his famous show with late partner Gene Siskel and later Richard Roeper.
Roger Ebert's film criticism was more than simple movie reviews. Many of his critiques are used in film classes to this day.
He elevated criticism to an art form and films to literature.
Everyone who loves movies has suffered a major loss today.

Everyone from Miley Cyrus to Neil Patrick Harris is giving their opinion on the death of Chris Guerra. Hot on the pursuit of Justin Bieber's car, the paparazzo lost his life following a fatal blow from an oncoming car as he tried to cross Sepulveda during a traffic stop.
We even dished some more of our own feelings on The Talk, offering opinion of Bieber himself, but now we've learned that even film critic Roger Ebert wants to chime in!
It began with a tweet:

After beating papillary thyroid cancer in a drastic way, we were hoping Roger Ebert wouldn't have to battle any other physical ailment ever again. He's been through enough.
Sadly, he's back in the hospital with a broken hip. Apparently he injured himself after performing

We were really hoping they'd be able to work this out.
Last month, we were sad to learn that Roger Ebert's newest show Ebert Presents At The Movies was most likely on it's way out due to lack of funding.
As we mentioned before, Roger and his wife had been footing the bill for the show themselves, but they've realized that they can no longer afford to do so.
