L.A. film critics fete Doris Day

Actress will receive career achievement award

Doris Day has been selected to receive the Los Angeles Film Critics’ career achievement award.

The star of films including “Pillow Talk” and “That Touch of Mink” released an album of jazz standards and cover tunes this year. Day’s performance of “Que Sera Sera” from “The Man Who Knew Too Much” won the Oscar for best original song in 1956.

“Decades on from the main body of her work, Doris Day is still arguably the template to which Hollywood turns when trying to quantify and capture ‘girl-next-door’ appeal,” said Brent Simon, prexy of the critics’ group. “Equally at home in snappish romantic comedies and more dramatic fare, Day was the biggest female star of the 1960s, giving a series of delightfully perceptive performances.”

Winners of the critics’ awards will be selected Dec. 11. The honor for Day, who is also an animal rights activist, will be presented at a gala dinner in January.
