Statuettes For Loy And Loren

Myrna Loy and Sophia Loren will receive honorary Oscars this year. The board of governors gives out honorary Oscars periodically in recognition of lifetime achievement. Japanese director Akira Kurosawa was honored last year.

Loy will receive a gold statuette in recognition of her 54-year career, during which she appeared in approximately 125 films, but was never nominated for an Oscar.

She made more than 60 features in her first 10 years as a Hollywood actress. But she didn’t become a top star until she teamed with William Powell in “The Thin Man” at MGM in 1934. That hit was followed by five sequels. In 1936, Loy was crowned “Queen of the Movies” in a national poll of filmgoers.

Loren, a 1961 best actress Oscar winner for “Two Women,” remains the only performer ever to earn an acting Oscar for work in a foreign-language film.

She will be cited as “one of the genuine treasures of world cinema who, in a career rich with memorable performances, has added permanent luster to our art form.” Loren’s body of work includes 60 films. “Marriage, Italian Style” earned her a second Academy nomination for best actress.
