Happy Birthday to Elizabeth Taylor on the day of the Oscars

By Greg Hernandez

HollywoodNews.com: It seems somehow fitting that Elizabeth Taylor’s 79th birthday falls on Oscar Sunday this year.

The acting legend, hospitalized in recent weeks with heart problems, won Academy Awards for best actress in 1961 for Butterfield 8 and in 1966 for Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? In 1993, she was the recipient of an Honorary Oscar for her humanitarian work. Miss Taylor was also a best actress nominee for Raintree County, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and Suddenly Last Summer.

Miss Taylor, whose other classic films include ‘National Velvet,’ ‘Father of the Bride,’ ‘A Place in the Sun,’ ‘Giant’ and ‘Cleopatra,’ has not appeared in a feature film since 1994′s ‘The Flintstones’ and last acted in the 2001 TV movie ‘These Old Broads.’

But her place in film history is firmly established.
