It seems fitting that I went to see The Irishman on Martin Scorsese’s birthday! Throughly enjoyed the film and his work is always outstanding. Happy birthday Marty!
The legend of stage and screen turns an incredible 94 years old today! So a huge Happy Birthday to Dame Angela!
The fact that I am 32 today reminds me of this scene from one of my favourite films When Harry Met Sally . . . I am now officially the same age as Sally in this clip!
Yes in 8 years . . .
I am getting increasingly sad about how big the number is getting. 32 today!!!!!!!!
So for my birthday post today I decided to take a look at who managed to win an Oscar at the age of 32!
Helen Hayes (The Sin of Madelyn Claudet)
Jane Wyman (Johnny Belinda)
Diane Keaton (Annie Hall)
James Stewart (The Philadelphia Story)
Daniel Day-Lewis (My Left Foot)
Nicolas Cage (Leaving Las Vegas)
Van Heflin (Johnny Eager)
Norman Taurog (Skippy)
Damien Chazelle (La La Land)
Something I found rather interesting when it came to putting this post together was that the majority of Oscar winners were a lot older particularly when it came to the male categories. Also in terms of the films above I have actually only watched one of them and it has to be one of my all time favourites*! Maybe I should make it a task to find and watch the rest of them over the next year.
Anyway HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
