Who took home all those Oscars

By The Associated Press / April 1, 1987



Los Angeles

Veteran character actor Ralph Bellamy accepted an Honorary Award Oscar at the 59th Annual Academy Awards Monday, calling it the highlight of his 65-year career. It was his first Academy Award. He was nominated for best supporting actor for ``The Awful Truth'' in 1937. Bellamy has appeared in 103 movies, including ``Stage Door Canteen,'' ``The Court-Martial of Billy Mitchell,'' and ``Sunrise at Campobello,'' reprising his stage role as Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Also honored was producer-director Steven Spielberg, whose box-office successes have yet to win him an Oscar. He accepted the special Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award with a call to return to literate cinema.
