Gaynor To Be Honoured With Mary Pickford Award At Satellites
Actress/singer Mitzi Gaynor is to be honoured with the 2011 Mary Pickford Award for Outstanding Contribution to the Entertainment Industry at the 16th annual Satellite Awards in Beverly Hills next month.

The There's No Business Like Show Business and Anything Goes star, who made her acting debut aged 17 in My Blue Heaven opposite Betty Grable, turned 80 in September.

She says, "I am so very grateful to be able to work within an industry that I truly adore. To be recognised for that work, and to have it considered an outstanding contribution, well, I'm just over the moon with happiness, and especially with thanks."

Throughout her long career, the South Pacific star has appeared onscreen alongside the likes of movie legends Marilyn Monroe, Bing Crosby, Gene Kelly, Frank Sinatra, Yul Brynner and Kirk Douglas.

She also made a name for herself as a Las Vegas regular in the 1960s after wowing fans with her spectacular nightclub revue at the Flamingo Hotel.
