WHAT ACTRESS?

5 posts in this topic

Can anyone help me with a trivia question? What actress appeared in 21 movies that were nominated for best picture? I find it hard to believe that ANYONE could be in that many best pictures, but I guess it must be true. Anyone have any idea? I'm assuming it must be a supporting player.........the actress isnt necessarily nominated in the best pictures she appears in......

Well, it isn't Davis, Crawford, de Havilland, Streep, Colbert, or anybody named Hepburn. (I checked.)

 

Could it be the woman in the Columbia Pictures logo?

LOL. No, it has to be an actress. I'm stumped. 21 films? I'm figuring it is a supporting actress as they'd have more opportunities.........

This was the theme of one evening's (maybe one day's) programming last week. I didn't register her name, because it was previously unknown to me, but apparently she had bit parts in a number of films that ended up winning Oscars. This led TCM to program around her "magic touch."
