November 2009:Lauren Bacall Receives Honorary Oscar
March 2010: Acknowledged during OSCAR telecast.
One of the most beautiful woman the screen has ever seen. Plus she has that great voice and an elegance that’s so ageless.
Seems a wicked shame that when she finally is awarded an OSCAR (an accolade that is long overdue – whether it’s actually won or honorary) the ACADEMY decides that this portion will no longer be part of the televised ceremony.
However Lauren Bacall was publically acknowledged during the 2010 ceremony.
Ms. Bacall made her screen debut with HUMPHREY BOGART (who she later married) in TO HAVE & HAVE NOT in 1944. The legendary star was only nominated once – as SUPPORTING ACTRESS for THE MIRROR HAS TWO FACES in 1996. She has appeared in more than 30 films, including such notable noirs as THE BIG SLEEP and KEY LARGO.
Mr. Willis shot all three GODFATHER movies as well as many of WOODY ALLEN’S best films: MANHATTAN, INTERIORS, ANNIE HALL and STARDUST MEMORIES.
The honorary awards was presented at the ACADEMY’S inaugural Governors Awards gala event in NOVEMBER 2009 in HOLLYWOOD.
