Great Moments in Horror Actressing: Margot Kidder

"This genre gives actresses some really juicy lines and roles,but denies them the acclaim that comes from more 'serious' roles.Kidder was a gifted actress who was indelible in a few films."-Lady Edith

"She won a Genie for it - because Canadians have great taste!"-Mike in Canada

With the upcoming Academy Awards celebrating their 91st year,the Oscars have plenty of history to obsess over.亚博主页One of the less-discussed pieces of history is which directors have the most pull with the Academy's acting branch.Today's topic: directors who have guided multiple actors and actresses to nominations and/or wins.

In the 91 year history of the Academy Awards,1757 performances were directed to an Oscar nomination.I tracked every single one of them to come up with these numbers.More notes after the jump...

1867Madame CJ Walker,cosmetics mogul and the first black female millionaire in America,is born in Louisiana.Where's her biopic,Hollywood?History has more than just Great White Man stories.
