Did you know that Diana Ross was nominated for both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe?
Ross was nominated for the Best Actress Academy Award at the 1973 ceremony for her role in ‘Lady Sings the Blues’. The film was based on the life of the late Billie Holiday, who died in 1959 at the age of 44 years after a life of drug and alcohol abuse.
Ross also earned a nod for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama at the 1973 Golden Globe show. Yet, similar to the list of Grammy Award nominations that she nabbed throughout her long career, she didn’t win either award. Watch Ross perform ‘The Man I Love’ in ‘Lady Sings the Blues’ below:
