2013 tcm SUTS Blogathon Day 3: Alec Guinness

Welcome to DAY THREE the 2013 TCM Summer Under the Stars blogathon!

Today we will spotlight bloggers who will spotlight Alec Guinness!

First, a little Alec Guinness trivia … According to IMDb (so it MUST be true), Alec Guinness is the only person to receive an Oscar nomination for an acting category in any of the Star Wars films. 

SUTS and Oscar: In addition to the honorary Oscar he was given in 1980, Alec Guinness has been nominated for five Oscars: Best Actor, 1952’s The Lavender Hill Mob (lost to Gary Cooper for High Noon); Best Actor, 1957’s The Bridge on the River Kwai (winner); Best Adapted Screenplay, 1958’s The Horse’s Mouth (lost to Alan Jay Lerner for Gigi); Best Supporting Actor (1977’s Star Wars (lost to Jason Robards for Julia); and Best Supporting Actor, 1988’s Little Dorrit (lost to Kevin Kline for A Fish Called Wanda).
