Stars who reprised Oscar winning roles

26 August 2014 3:05 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Douglas. Anthony Hopkins. Just two actors who've returned to play the parts that won them Oscars...

When Oscar glory comes knocking for a successful Hollywood actor, it must be hugely tempting when the chance arrives for them to reprise that award-winning role. But while sequels and reboots are a common enough sight in the movie industry these days, examples of stars who've returned to their Oscar-winning roles are relatively few and far between.

The reason, perhaps, is because it's so difficult to recapture the creative lightning in a bottle that led to the Oscar win in the first place. Nevertheless, some actors do occasionally take up the offer and return to the filmmaking well. And as the list below proves, the results can sometimes be highly accomplished - though seldom quite as powerful and fresh as the films they're following...

Acting Legend Elaine Stritch Passes Away At 89

17 July 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Legendary Sondheim actress and noted foul-mouth Elaine Stritch has passed away at the age of 89.  She died in her home in Birmingham, Michigan.  Stritch will forever be remembered for her saucy and sassy performances on stage and on screen.

With a career spanning over fifty years, Stritch rose to fame in the 1940′s as a charismatically brash and husky singer on stage.  Perhaps her most memorable performance was in Sondheim’s 1970 production of Company, in which she set a new industry standard with her version of “The Ladies Who Lunch”. She would, much later, perform this song for President Obama and during her own one-woman-show in 2002.  She became even more of a household name after her performances in Woody Allen’s September and the cult classic Cocoon: The Return.  More recently, Stritch played the grumpy matriarch of the Donaghy clan in an Emmy-award garnering performance on Tina Fey‘s 30 Rock. »
