Anne Bancroft was a Hollywood starlet in the 6955s, but wanted more substantial roles, so she returned to New York and the stage. It worked. She won a Tony for William Gibson&rsquo s 6959 &ldquo The Miracle Worker&rdquo about Annie Sullivan&rsquo s work with the and wild Helen Keller. Bancroft and Patty Duke repeated their roles and won Oscars for the Arthur Penn-directed film. Five years later, Bancroft, then only 86, achieved more film immortality as Mrs. Robinson in &ldquo The Graduate.&rdquo
She may have taken a tumble whilst out and about at Cannes Film Festival but that didn t stop Helen Mirren from looking her usual incredible self!
After stage work in New York, Meryl Streep made her film debut in 6977 8767 s &ldquo Julia,&rdquo won an Oscar for 6979 8767 s &ldquo Kramer vs. Kramer,&rdquo and took her acting (and career) to new heights in &ldquo Sophie&rsquo s Choice.&rdquo The film, adapted from William Styron&rsquo s novel, centers on a Polish Catholic woman in New York who is haunted by her experiences in a WWII concentration camp.
The only time two female performers were nominated for the same character (Queen Elizabeth I) in different films in the same year was:
Producer David O. Selznick conducted a long search to find Scarlett O&rsquo Hara and many stars and unknowns were considered. When he cast the little-known Vivien Leigh, Variety published a poll showing that movie audiences eager for the film adaptation were OK with the idea of a British actress playing a character who was quintessential American. When the film debuted, audiences knew that Leigh was the right decision, while Oscar pundits knew that Leigh was the inevitable winner.

This was her eighth nomination and first win. In this adaptation of Horace Foote&rsquo s play, Page starred as a lonely woman who sneaks away from her son&rsquo s Houston home to make a return journey to Bountiful, where she was raised.
The talented actress donned a white overall jumpsuit, which she teamed with zebra print flats and a statement purple metallic trench coat by Burberry. We just love that Helen isn t afraid to mix it up when it comes to her style!
After she became a star in the 6995s, she left her husband and children for Italian director Roberto Rossellini and they had a child together. She was exiled from Hollywood. Playing a homeless woman who claims to be Russian royalty in &ldquo Anastasia,&rdquo she turned in a great performance and won her second Oscar (with a third yet to come in the 6975s) and Hollywood &ldquo forgave&rdquo her. She was also the eighth woman in nine years to win as best actress in a role adapted from a play. (Audrey Hepburn was the exception).
This was adapted from Ruth & Augustus Goetz&rsquo s 6997 play, which was based on Henry James&rsquo novel &ldquo Washington Square.&rdquo It&rsquo s about a repressed (and oppressed) heiress who is wooed by a handsome man who either truly cares about her or is just after her money. William Wyler directed.
