Audrey Hepburn & Julie Andrews - Oscars, April 5th 1965
Audrey was nominated for her role as Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady. Julie originated the role on the stage & it was assumed that she would receive the movie role, but it went to Audrey because she was a big movie star. Audrey recorded a vocal track for the movie, but it was dubbed with the incomperable Marni Nixon’s voice because Audrey’s voice didn’t have enough range. Julie ended up taking home the trophy for her role as Mary Poppins.
This is one of my favourite Oscar stories. There was no personal animosity between the two actresses & these two elegant friends spent time together after the show posing & looking stunning in opera gloves as classy dames are apt to do. It’s lovely knowing that Julie received the award that year, especially since she’s the best Eliza (though Audrey’s performance was, as always, very charming) & because she’s absolutely enchanting as Mary. I’d go so far as to say she’s practically perfect in every day.
