Looks like we're ending the year on a sad note, with the passing of a Hollywood legend, Louis Rainer. Rainer died at the ripe old age of 104. She was the oldest living Oscar winner, and the first two time Lead Actress Oscar winner. My heart goes out to her family and friends, and to my blogging buddy Fritz, who is a big fan of her work (to the point where he grades individual acting performances of a scale of 'Louis's'). We recently discussed both of her Oscar wins on Twice a Best Actress (which will be resuming shortly).
