Angie at the Oscars

Angela Lansbury earned two Oscar nominations in succession when she was only a teenager - for Gaslight in 1944 and The Picture of Dorian Gray in 1945. She earned her third nomination for the role of a lifetime as Mrs. Iselin in The Manchurian Candidate in 1962. Angie has five Tony Awards for her stage work and six Golden Globes for various film and television work. She holds the record for the most Emmy nominations, eighteen so far, and has yet to win. She just celebrated her 88th birthday on October 25th. It's rumored that she's about to head to London for another revival of Blithe Spirit. She's also talking about returning to Broadway in a revival of The Chalk Garden. Yesterday, she finally was awarded the much deserved honorary Oscar for her body of work - 70 years in show business with over 50 films, numerous television and stage credits. Brava and thank you, Angie, for continuing to inspire me.
