In 1968, Barbra Streisand and Katharine Hepburn made Oscars history when they became the second two actors to tie for their Academy Award. (The first were Frederic March and Wallace Beery in 1932.) Barbra Streisand and Katharine Hepburn are two of my favorite actresses, and the performances for which they won – Barbra for Funny Girl and Kate for The Lion in Winter – are two of my favorite performances. Nathaniel at The Film Experience was kind enough to let me write a two-part article about this amazing moment in Academy history. Click the links below!
The readers at TFE are very vocal commenters, so make sure to check the comments section as well. There’s a raging debate going on over whether Barbra deserved her Oscar. (She did.)
Thanks again to Nathaniel and TFE for giving me the opportunity!
