Ebert's favorite film of 2012 was eventual Best Picture winner 'Argo.'

A sad day for cinema fans everywhere today; veteran film critic, author, advocate, and (lately) blogger/Twitter master Roger Ebert has died after a long battle with cancer.

Below, some clips paying tribute to the man, the myth, the guy who co-wrote Russ Meyer's 1970 Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

PS Ebert was also a badass defender of filmmakers ... love this clip:
