Awards | Downloads | Image Credits

The First Lady of the American Theatre also won two Academy Awards for her performances on film -- the first for THE SIN OF MADELON CLAUDET (1931) and the second for her supporting role in AIRPORT (1970).  She is also the first performer to win the Entertainment Triple Crown, collecting two Tony awards, a Grammy and an Emmy in addition to her Oscars.  If you don't remember her singing, rest assured, she won her 1976 Grammy award for Best Spoken Word Recording (as narrator on a recording called "Great American Documents").
