Please Submit Bette Midler’s Name To The Kennedy Honors Submission Page And Share – Example Given. Thank You!

Mister D: There’s a section where you write why Bette should receive this reward. I hate writing, so I just let whatever flow out of me. You can use this as a template and further improve on it. I left out, looking back, the cultural shifts she started, and how she was so controversial at the time and the barriers she had to break down. You can make it more emotional but you do have to include her accomplishment. Go for it. This is an award I think she really deserves, so please fill it out and share the hell out of the link to this article by clicking on the title of the piece ot just the link provided to the Kennedy Honors Submission Page. Send it to everu Bette Midler fan site or FB group you know. This is not a time to play politics. It’s about coming together as a community. Read More

TOP 10: LOOKING FOR OSCAR GLORY AFTER 1991 (Bette Makes The List Twice)

Awards Circiut
TOP 10: LOOKING FOR OSCAR GLORY AFTER 1991
By Sam Coffey – Apr 4, 20180

ACCA 1991As voting continues in ACCA 1991, Awards Circuit celebrates the many great films of 1991, perhaps one of the most historic years in Oscar history.  A number of talented performers, directors, writers, and craftsmen were nominated (or won!) for their great achievements but have somehow not found their way back to the Dolby Theatre.  Mercifully, some actors who remained on this barren list for ages eventually found Oscar glory again, with Robert De Niro landing his first nomination since “Cape Fear” with “Silver Linings Playbook” and Laura Dern doing the same in 2014 with “Wild” following up her first nomination for “Rambling Rose.”  Unfortunately, too many winners and nominees from 1991 have passed away, failing to get back to Oscar since this year, including Jessica TandyJack Palance, cinematographer Adrian Biddle, and shockingly Jonathan Demme.

On Gypsy “Of all the musical comedies I’ve ever known, it’s the one I have the most affection for, because I love the score.

On Gypsy “Of all the musical comedies I’ve ever known, it’s the one I have the most affection for, because I love the score. It’s big. It’s bombastic. It’s bright. It’s American. It’s full of puns and jokes. Sort of like me.” (1993) – Bette Midler

On Singing: “It’s much harder than acting. Recording is just torture.

On Singing: “It’s much harder than acting. Recording is just torture. You obsess over every note and every track and every instrument and it’s like being in a dark – this is why I would never be a director – you are in a dark room for months on end and all you have is takeout food. I just couldn’t stand the process of making records, and I think it showed that I was in despair.” (The Washington Post, 1991) – Bette Midler

On Pretty Woman: “Pretty Woman” stars Julia Roberts and Richard Gere and they “were utterly adorable together, but that wasn’t romance. That was a fantasy.

On Pretty Woman: “Pretty Woman” stars Julia Roberts and Richard Gere and they “were utterly adorable together, but that wasn’t romance. That was a fantasy. That was a selfish little boy with a tawdry little girl. They weren’t grown-up people, they were just two children. Ingrid and Cary, that’s grown-up… . (The Washington Post, 1991) – Bette Midler

On For The Boys: “Well, I did sing and dance again. That was a real thrill for me because we worked with the most wonderful arrangers on this music

On For The Boys: “Well, I did sing and dance again. That was a real thrill for me because we worked with the most wonderful arrangers on this music … and we did the tracks over at Capitol Records where Frank Sinatra used to record. So everybody from Capitol came down and so did people from our group. You couldn’t get a seat at those sessions, and not a dry eye in the house. I slayed ’em – if I do say so myself.” (The Washington Post, 1991) – Bette Midler
