2013 tcm SUTS Blogathon Day 15: Gregory Peck
Welcome to DAY FIFTEEN of the 2013 Summer Under the Stars blogathon! I can’t believe we’re already at the halfway turn!
Today we will spotlight bloggers who will spotlight Gregory Peck
First, a little Gregory Peck trivia … According to IMDb (so it MUST be true), Peck was the first native Californian to win a Best Actor Oscar. Speaking of which …
SUTS and Oscar: In addition to the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award he received in 1968, Gregory Peck was nominated for five Oscars:
Best Actor, 1944’s The Keys of the Kingdom (lost to Ray Milland for The Lost Weekend)
Best Actor, 1946’s The Yearling (lost to Fredric March for The Best Years of Our Lives)
Best Actor, 1947’s Gentleman’s Agreement (lost to Ronald Colman for A Double Life)
Best Actor, 1950’s Twelve O’Clock High (lost to Broderick Crawford for All the King’s Men)
Best Actor, 1962’s To Kill a Mockingbird (winner)
