Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson at the Academy Awards

Eli Wallach and wife Anne Jackson are seen above arriving at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony, held on Sunday, Feb. 27, at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood.

The 95-year-old Wallach was given an Honorary Oscar at the Governors Awards in November 2010.

Delayed film debut

The Actors Studio-trained Eli Wallach was to have made his film debut in Fred Zinnemann's Academy Award-winning 1953 blockbuster From Here to Eternity. Ultimately, however, Frank Sinatra – then a has-been following a string of box office duds – was cast for a pittance, getting beaten to a pulp by a pre-stardom Ernest Borgnine.

For his bloodied efforts, Sinatra went on to take home the year's Best Supporting Actor Oscar and to become one of the top film stars of the late '50s and early '60s.

Having missed out on that major film break, Eli Wallach – by then already 40 – would end up making his film debut in the much more modest Baby Doll (1956), a controversial, sexually charged Tennessee Williams comedy directed by Elia Kazan and starring Carroll Baker in the title role. Baker was shortlisted for the Best Actress Oscar, while Wallach took home the British Academy Award for the Most Promising Newcomer to Film.

From then on, Eli Wallach would be featured in about 80 movies and, since 1951, in about as many television shows.

Eli Wallach movies

Below is a brief list of notable Eli Wallach films. Curiously, the Honorary Oscar recipient and Tony Award winner (for the 1951 production of Tennessee Williams' The Rose Tattoo, opposite Maureen Stapleton) was never even nominated for a competitive Academy Award.*

Golden Globe nominee and Emmy winner

Besides his Bafta win, Eli Wallach's Baby Doll performance earned him a Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe nomination. He lost to Earl Holliman for The Rainmaker.

For his television work, Wallach was shortlisted for five Primetime Emmy Awards. He won in the Best Supporting Actor category for the Terence Young-directed TV movie (also shown in theaters) Poppies Are Also Flowers a.k.a. The Poppy Is Also a Flower. The generally panned 1966 drama about the dangers of opium was narrated by Grace Kelly and featured cameos and supporting appearances by the likes of Rita Hayworth, Trevor Howard, and Omar Sharif.

Wallach's last Emmy nod was in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series category for the 2009 Nurse Jackie episode “Chicken Soup.” He lost to Neil Patrick Harris for the Glee episode “Bryan Ryan.”

Anne Jackson The Secret Life of an American Housewife Belle de JourAnne Jackson in 'The Secret Life of an American Housewife': Shades of Luis Buñuel's 'Belle de Jour.'

Anne Jackson movies

Mostly a stage performer, Anne Jackson appeared infrequently in films: less than 25 features between 1950 and 2008 – in addition to about 40 TV roles.

Jackson's best-known big-screen parts are probably her bored housewife posing as a call girl in George Axelrod's 1968 comedy The Secret Life of an American Wife and that of a doctor in Stanley Kubrick's 1980 cult classic The Shining.† Below is a brief list of notable Anne Jackson movies.

  • Tall Story (1960).
    Dir.: Joshua Logan.
    Cast: Anthony Perkins. Jane Fonda. Ray Walston. Marc Connelly. Anne Jackson. Murray Hamilton. Elizabeth Patterson.
  • How to Save a Marriage and Ruin Your Life (1968).
    Dir.: Fielder Cook.
    Cast: Dean Martin. Stella Stevens. Eli Wallach. Anne Jackson. Betty Field. Jack Albertson.
  • The Secret Life of an American Wife (1968).
    Dir.: George Axelrod.
    Cast: Walter Matthau. Anne Jackson. Patrick O'Neal. Edy Williams. Richard Bull.
  • Lovers and Other Strangers (1970).
    Dir.: Cy Howard.
    Cast: Diane Keaton. Bea Arthur. Michael Brandon. Bonnie Bedelia. Richard S. Castellano. Cloris Leachman. Anne Jackson. Anne Meara. Gig Young. Harry Guardino. Anthony Holland.
  • The Shining (1980).
    Dir.: Stanley Kubrick.
    Cast: Jack Nicholson. Shelley Duvall. Danny Lloyd. Scatman Crothers. Barry Nelson. Anne Jackson.
  • Lucky Days (2008).
    Dir.: Angelica Page. Tony Torn.
    Cast: Angelica Page. Federico Castelluccio. Luke Zarzecki. Will Patton. Anne Jackson. Rip Torn. Tony Torn.

Lucky Days remains Anne Jackson's final film.

† With (tame) shades of the kinky, 1967 Luis Buñuel-Catherine Deneuve effort Belle de Jour, The Secret Life of an American Wife is unrelated to Anne Jackson's other 1968 movie, How to Save a Marriage and Ruin Your Life – or, for that matter, to the 1965 Jack Lemmon-Virna Lisi comedy How to Murder Your Wife.

Emmy and Grammy nominee

Anne Jackson was an Emmy nominee in the Best Actress in a Drama category for her performance in the 1967 CBS Playhouse episode “Dear Friends.” She lost to her husband's The Rose Tattoo co-star Maureen Stapleton in the teleplay Among the Paths to Eden, directed by Frank Perry and written by Truman Capote.

Besides “Dear Friends,” notable Anne Jackson TV appearances include:

  • Glenn Jordan's The Family Man (1979), as the wife of unfaithful husband Edward Asner, having an affair with the much younger Meredith Baxter (at the time, Meredith Baxter Birney).
  • Alan Gibson's Golden Globe-nominated and Emmy-winning drama A Woman Called Golda (1982), as Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir's secretary Lou Kaddar, with Judy Davis as the young Meir, and Emmy and Golden Globe winner Ingrid Bergman as the older one.
  • Robert Butler's Emmy-nominated miniseries Out on a Limb (1987), as lawyer and social activist Bella Abzug, playing opposite Shirley MacLaine as herself.

Additionally, Anne Jackson, husband Eli Wallach, and a whole array of film and stage performers – Claire Bloom, Kathleen Turner, Al Pacino, Natasha Richardson, Ruby Dee, Ossie Davis, etc. – were Grammy nominees for the 2000 album The Complete Shakespeare Sonnets.

For her stage work, in 1956 Jackson was a Tony nominee as Best Featured Actress in a Play for Paddy Chayefsky's Middle of the Night. In 1963, she took home a Best Actress Obie Award for two Off-Broadway plays: The Typists and The Tiger.

April 2015 update: Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson were married from 1948 until Wallach's death at age 98 in June 2014. Jackson will be turning 89 next Sept. 3.

Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied at the Oscars

Best Actress winner Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied (at the time, Portman's husband-to-be)* arrive at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony held on Feb. 27 at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Portman took home the Oscar for her performance as a mentally unstable ballerina in Darren Aronofsky's psychological drama Black Swan.

An international box office hit, Black Swan was also a Best Picture nominee, ultimately losing the Oscar to Tom Hooper's The King's Speech. Besides Natalie Portman and dancer-choreographer Benjamin Millepied, also in the Black Swan cast are Mila Kunis, Winona Ryder, Barbara Hershey, and Vincent Cassel.

Portman's fellow Best Actress contenders were:

  • Annette Bening for The Kids Are All Right.
  • Michelle Williams for Blue Valentine.
  • Nicole Kidman for Rabbit Hole.
  • Jennifer Lawrence for Winter's Bone.

Natalie Portman had been previously nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for Mike Nichols' 2004 drama Closer, co-starring Julia Roberts, Jude Law, and Clive Owen.

* Update: Natalie Portman and husband Benjamin Millepied were married in Aug. '12.

Pregnant Oscar-winning actresses

Once again, a pregnant Natalie Portman in a purple dress can be seen on the Oscars' Red Carpet.

Portman is reportedly the fifth pregnant Oscar winner in the acting categories. Her predecessors were:

  • Best Supporting Actress Eva Marie Saint for On the Waterfront (1954).
  • Best Actress Meryl Streep for Sophie's Choice (1982).
  • Best Supporting Actress Catherine Zeta-Jones for Chicago (2002).
  • Best Supporting Actress Rachel Weisz for The Constant Gardener (2005).

And here are a handful of pregnant Oscar losers in the acting categories.

  • Best Actress nominee Glenn Close for Fatal Attraction (1987).
    She lost to Cher in Moonstruck.
  • Best Actress nominee Susan Sarandon for Thelma & Louise (1991).
    She lost to Jodie Foster in The Silence of the Lambs.
  • Best Actress nominee Annette Bening for American Beauty (1999).
    She lost to Hilary Swank in Boys Don't Cry.
  • Best Supporting Actress nominee Marcia Gay Harden for Mystic River (2003).
    She lost to Renée Zellweger in Cold Mountain.
  • Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress nominee Cate Blanchett for, respectively, Elizabeth: The Golden Age and I'm Not There (2007).
    She lost to, respectively, Marion Cotillard in La Vie en Rose and Tilda Swinton in Michael Clayton.

There was also Best Actress nominee Judy Garland, shortlisted for George Cukor's A Star Is Born (1954). Garland wasn't at the 1955 Oscar ceremony, but as she was the expected winner, media crews were stationed at her hospital.

However, the Best Actress winner turned out to be Grace Kelly for The Country Girl.

Tim Metzger Jennifer RedfearnTim Metzger and Jennifer Redfearn: 'Sun Come Up' documentary filmmakers.

'Sun Come Up' Best Documentary Short nominees Tim Metzger and Jennifer Redfearn

Oscar nominees Tim Metzger and Jennifer Redfearn, whose Sun Come Up was a Best Documentary Short Subject Oscar 2011 contender, are seen above on the 83rd Academy Awards' Red Carpet outside the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood. Sun Come Up was directed by Redfearn, and produced by Redfearn and Metzger.

The documentary short depicts the plight of the Carteret Islanders, some of the planet's first environmental refugees. The film focuses on a group of families looking for new homes in inhospitable, war-torn Bougainville, an autonomous region in Papua New Guinea.

Needless to say, Sun Come Up has nothing to do with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's 1949 “family” movie The Sun Comes Up, directed by Richard Thorpe, and starring Jeanette MacDonald, Claude Jarman Jr., and Lassie.

The 2011 Oscar winner in the Best Documentary Short Subject category was Karen Goodman and Kirk Simon's Strangers No More.
