Awards

Marilyn may not have ever picked up an Oscar, but her many talents were recognized in a variety of ways during her lifetime.

During her school days, Norma Jeane won a fountain pen for her essay “Dog, Man’s Best Friend.” She also received a certificate “in recognition of the personal service rendered by her as a member of the School Safety Committee” at the Sawtelle Boulevard School.

  • "Female World Film Favorite 1961," March 1962 Golden Globe Awards

Some Like It Hot and All About Eve scored positions fourteen and sixteen respectively in the American Film Institute’s 1998 list of America’s 100 Greatest Movies. In June 1999 Marilyn came sixth in the American Film Institute’s list of the top twenty-five female stars of all time.

 Since her death, Marilyn continues to top lists and polls of sex symbols. Sporadic suggestions that she should be awarded a posthumous Academy Award continue to fall on deaf ears.
