It’s a fitting one, given Midler’s decades of work with costume designers and her championing of beloved fashion designers including Marc Jacobs, Christopher John Rogers and Michael Kors over the years. Past recipients made me think Midler should have gotten this long ago; Meryl Streep, Clint Eastwood, Lorne Michaels, Shonda Rimes, Ryan Murphy, Quentin Tarrantino, and more…Also, Hocus Pocus is nominated for:

  • History Daily looks back at old photos to remind us how we loved the 80’s. Bette Midler and the Harlettes are shown: We may know her as an actress and funny woman, but before she was the star of screens big and small Bette Midler fronted a lounge act in Manhattan that draw huge crowds thanks to her big voice and over the top humor. As her fame grew so did her show. She brought in a group of backup singers as well as choreographer Toni Basil to help her create a routine that Rolling Stone compared to Tina Turner. The experience was so intense that former Harlette Linda Hart said that providing backup for Midler was like “show business boot camp.”
