Our Electric Lady #1 highlighting fellow Electric Ladies, Dorothy Dandridge and Oscar nominee, Lupita Nyong’o. Be sure to tune into to the Oscars tonight to support this Electric Lady!
Dorothy Dandridge is a picture of loveliness as she attends the Academy Award presentations at New York’s Century Theatre. The gracious Dandridge stole the show at New York’s version of the Academy Award ceremony though movie stars and celebrities were a dime a dozen.” - The Associated Press reported.
It was a historic night for Dottie as she was the first black person to be nominated for an Academy Award in a LEAD role. She also presented an award for Film Editing, thus making her the first black woman invited to participate in the show. Although she wanted to win the Oscar, Dottie insisted that there was no way that she would actually win. According to Earl Mills, Dottie had a thank you speech memorized. However during rehearsals, she said: "It’s too soon for me to win. I’m too new in the movie business. If I don’t win, I hope my friend Judy [Garland] wins it.” As we all know, Grace Kelly went on to win the Academy Award for Best Actress. Although disappointed, Dottie was very optimistic about the future. While enjoying a plate of chitterlings later that evening Dorothy said, "Earl, dear, I know I’m going to win an Oscar one day. I really enjoy acting and it will get me off the road.”
