Happy 64th Birthday Whoopi Goldberg!

The legend that is Whoopi Goldberg turns 64 years old today! She stars in some of my favourite comedy films Sister Act, Jumpin’ Jack Flash, Ghost and her voice work in The Lion King. Takes on the more serious roles as well, she was outstanding in The Color Purple.

32 Today . . .

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)

Directors
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!

*La La Land
