New York, NY, United States (4E) - One of Hollywood's most prized screenwriters and filmmakers, Nora Ephron, 71, passed away Tuesday night at the New York Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center due to pneumonia.
Her death was caused by complications due to her acute myeloid leukemia, according to her son, Jacob Bernstein.
Known for being a 'Hollywood matchmaker,' she was the brains behind the box office hits "When Harry Met Sally" and "Sleepless in Seattle." Her more recent hits included "You've Got Mail" and "Julie & Julia."

Truly, Hollywood mourns the passing of yet another gem in the entertainment industry. Thousands of sentiments about the Oscar-winning writer/director have been posted on Twitter following the news of her demise.
Actor Jonah Hill tweeted, "Nora Ephron's writing and directing is so remarkably honest, touching and funny. My heart goes out to her friends and family today."
