Winters tale

Hollywood Fest salutes thesp

Actress Shelley Winters will receive the Hollywood Film Festival’s lifetime achievement award at the fest’s second annual awards dinner, to be held Aug. 10 at the Beverly Hilton.

“Throughout her life and career, she has shared her knowledge with embryonic talent, dedicating her time teaching the craft of acting,” said Carlos de Abreu, founder and exec director of the festival. “Her professional body of work is a great example of what emerging filmmakers should follow.” The Hollywood Film Fest will run Aug. 5-10.

Winters began her career on Broadway and moved to the big screen in 1943, with a small part in Columbia’s “What a Woman.” In 1951, she appeared in the George Stevens-helmed “A Place in the Sun,” for which she earned her first Academy Award nomination. In 1960, Winters won an Oscar for supporting actress in “The Diary of Anne Frank,” and received her second in 1965 for “A Patch of Blue.”

In 1973, Winters received a Golden Globe for best actress and her fourth supporting-actress Academy Award nomination, for “The Poseidon Adventure.”

A longstanding member of the Actors Studio, Winters is a respected acting coach and has been “instrumental in molding the careers of many of today’s finest film and stage actors,” de Abreu said.

Winters’ latest film is “Gideon’s Web,” an indie directed by Claudia Hoover.
