    Newser) – Filmmaker and writer Nora Ephron has died of cancer at age 71, reports TMZ. Ephron wrote the screenplays for Sleepless in Seattle and When Harry Met Sally and earned three Oscar nominations. She had "emerged over the past four decades as one of America's warmest and most acute chroniclers of contemporary culture," says the Washington Post. Other big titles include Silkwood, You've Got Mail, and Julie and Julia. Her most recent work is the Broadway play Lucky Guy.
