Terms of Endearment was such a great movie and she was fantastic in it. She did deserve it.

especially for putting up with Debra Winger!

Bo said...

Yes she did deserve it...She is one of my favorite actresses.

Paul Benjamin said...

She did deserve it! That is one of the best performances still to this day!

It's so refreshing to hear someone speak so candidly and honestly.

She knows what she wants.

Good for her - great quote, and so great to see someone talking like that.

And she did deserve it, her performance was fearless and fantastic. I even liked her in the crappy sequel.

That’s funny I said “I deserve this” the last time I had sex...I didn’t get an Oscar though.

Kenneth Fron said...

Shirley! I wonder what she's up to these days???

The Daily Connoisseur said...

Have fun watching the Oscars Michael! Can't wait to read your recaps :)

Straight Guy said...

She fails my crude personality test: Would I mind being trapped in an elevator with this person? I don't deserve that.

Gropius said...

I just love that woman. Everything she's in is golden. Terms of Endearment was one of the first movies I remember crying my eyes out while watching. I don't remember seeing her last night. :(

Corve said...

The female director really deserved it. Happy she won.

And Mo'Nique too

LENORENEVERMORE said...

Hope your co-hosting event was a hit darling!

Did she really say, she deserves it? If she did, then the Oscar went home with home with a deserving person. I dislike when the winners short change themselves by those ridiculous speeches of how they thing someone else should have won.

Way to go Shirley!

Modesty?!! Nahhhh

raulito said...

Of course whe deserved it...all those who ridiculed her for her unusual beliefs are just projecting a need to silence others and make everyone conform. She is an original, strong and opinionated...just the way I like people to be and a great actor.
thanks for your comment on my blog.
