SEPTEMBER 18 - ANGELA LANSBURY

From Gaslight to Blithe Spirit, Dame Angela Lansbury’s acting career has spanned over a total of eight different decades, with her 90th birthday approaching this October 16. Whether you know her as Cabot Cove’s crime-solving murder mystery novelist, the voice behind “Bosom Buddies” or a Grammy-winning anthropomorphic singing teapot, there’s a good chance that Lansbury has touched your life at one point or another.

Lansbury took home an Honorary Academy Award in 2013, and over the years, she was received five Tony Awards, six Golden Globe Awards, an Olivier Award, eighteen Emmy Award nominations and three additional Academy Award nominations. On stage, she has dazzled audiences in Mame, Gypsy, Sweeney Todd and Dear World, and on the big screen, she has appeared in The Picture of Dorian Grey, The Manchurian Candidate and Bedknobs and Broomsticks. Her voice can be heard in the animated films The Last Unicorn, Beauty and the Beast and Anastasia, and oh, let’s not forget how she spent 12 seasons catching criminals on Murder, She Wrote.

Today marks the third annual International Angela Lansbury Appreciation Day, and it should be recognized this holiday inspired the entire CELEBRATE WOMEN project. Yes, that’s right! The sincerity surrounding a simple hashtag known as #FANSBURY made this all possible, and at this moment, we’d like to thank you all for following, reading and celebrating along with us.
