From the Wall Street Journal:
As a screenwriter, Ephron was nominated three times for Academy Awards, for "Silkwood," ''When Harry Met Sally ..." and "Sleepless in Seattle," and was the rare woman to write, direct and produce Hollywood movies.
Ephron was once married to Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein, one of the two reporters to break the Watergate story and she wrote about their marriage in the movie Heartburn.
Many celebrities tweeted about Ephron's passing, including Cher who said:
"Im Extremely Sad ! We had Wonderful times on Silkwood ! She told HILARIOUS STORIES"
