Post 50 Actors Who Never Won An Oscar

The Huffington Post

Feb 20, 2013

The Academy Awards are right around the corner, and we couldn’t be more excited about the prospect of prior Oscar winners like Denzel Washington, Robert De Niro and Sally Field adding another golden statue to their collection.

That being said, there is a surprisingly extensive list of acclaimed baby boomer actors who have never received Hollywood’s most coveted award, despite having been in the field for quite some time. For example, did you know that 65-year-old Glenn Close has never won an Oscar, even after being nominated six times? Read More

BetteBack December 8, 1977: The Surprise Variety Show Of The Season

Winnipeg Free Press

Two specials tonight have a touch of magic: “Bette Midlex- 01’Red Hair Is Back” on NBC and “Abide With Me” (Great Performances) on PBS. Would you believe the raucous, vulgar, i ns i s t e n t l y unwholsome Bette Midler turning
i n to a charming, winsome, poignant lady?

Well, credit producers Gary Smith and Dwight Hennon for this extraordinary feat of human alchemy in the surprise variety show of the season.

It starts out in typical Midler fashion with Bette emerging from a sea shell, dressed in skimply outrageous costume, surrounded By Hawaiian-type chorus line, all singing and dancing “Oklahoma,” From there on in for 20 minutes or so Miss Midler bumps, grinds, gestures obscenely, grimaces, bounces, tells borderline jokes and makes contemptuous
remarks about other performers — all in the spirit of bad, dirty “fun,” Read More

BetteBack December 10, 1977: Putting The Fun Back In Sexy

EV’RYBODY WATCHING ABC? Well, maybe they are, but they should have been tuned to NBC the other night for Bette Midler‘s unbelievably adult, raunchy and hilarious TV special. Not since Mae West has there been a performer who can put the fun
into sex like the Divine Miss M.

I especially like her rundown of the three types watching—the first never heard of her, the second asked “isn’t that Bette Midler” and the third were “hardcore fans who know me really well!” Bette had the latter saying, “Pass the brownies, Harry!” Read More

BetteBack December 8, 1977: Too Much For Television

Winnipeg Free Press

Midler talent better left to blossom on big stage

ORH001

HOLLYWOOD – Bette Midler, the “Divine Miss M,” took on commercial television Wednesday night with her first variety special, 01′ Red Hair Is back, on NBC.

And somehow, you wish she hadn’t. It wasn’t the show. On balance, It was a marginally good hour of variety television, with enough flashes of style and originality to counter the uneven structuring and sloppy pace.

Nor Is the Idea that Bette Midler is too good for television. She’s slmply too much for It — a victim of the medium’s compression chamber that, In her case, reduces an incomparable stage attraction into a hollow echo. Read More
