When Oscars were Oscars.
On This Day in History tweetz:
On this day 30 years ago – 26 March 1990 – My Left Foot won two Oscars: Best Actor for Daniel-Day Lewis (right) and Best Supporting Actress for Brenda Fricker (left).
Day-Lewis began his acceptance speech by saying, “You’ve just provided me with the makings of one hell of a weekend in Dublin.”

“Daniel Day-Lewis will no longer be working as an actor,” Leslee Dart, a spokeswoman for Mr. Lewis said in a statement released on Tuesday. “He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. This is a private decision and neither he nor his representatives will make any further comment on this subject.”

I thought that this is fairly suitable for the site. Daniel Day lewis speaking [at the Ireland American Fund dinner in New York] this week about the Wicklow Hospice and introducing their Chairperson for Fundraising (I’ve to declare an interest – it’s my mum). Just thought I’d flag it as it’s a touching introduction, and I know the charity are always keen for as much publicity as possible.
