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!
*La La Land
One of my favourite actresses turns 70 today and what better moment to then have a celebration of one of the greatest actresses of all time in photo form? She is in some of my all time favourite films, the biggest being The Bridges of Madison County!
What is your favourite Streep role?
The legend that is actor/director Clint Eastwood turns 89 years old today! He stars in some of my all time favourite films, Million Dollar Baby and The Bridges of Madison County.

This is always my favourite photo from any Oscar ceremony when they have all four of the acting winners pose together. So this year we have Rami Malek (Bohemian Rhapsody), Olivia Colman (The Favourite), Regina King (If Beale Street Could Talk) and Mahershala Ali (Green Book).
This was probably the nicest moment and speech when Thelma Schoonmaker was awarded with the BAFTA Fellowship award. Long time film editor for Martin Scorsese and a three time Oscar Winner!
Christian Bale is quite possibly one of the greatest British actors of all time. Causing chaos at the Golden Globes when some people didn’t realise that he is Welsh! I found that very amusing but also confirmation that he is therefore a truly outstanding actor! He has been nominated four times for an Oscar-winning for his supporting role in The Fighter.
He is very well-known for his serious method acting and really becoming the character. This has resulted in serious weight loss and weight gain over the years to achieve a totally different look. Not forgetting his working out to become Batman for Christopher Nolan!
He is certainly one of my favourite actors and here are my choices for his 7 Greatest performances . . . (So far) . . .
