Fuck Yeah, Bette Davis!

all-about-bette:

The Academy that year asked me to present the award to the winning actor on the TV show of this event. My hair was still in its shaven state, so a very clever Elizabethan cap was designed to cover all this up plus an appropriate dress of the period. It was quite a moment, appearing in front of “my town” for the first time in three years. The welcome I received that night was truly one of the great moments of my life. I felt one and all wanted me to know I had been missed and they were glad to have me back. (x)

“C’mon Oscar, let’s you and me get drunk!” 
When Bette Davis sighed this line to her character’s Oscar in The Star (1952), rumor has it Miss Davis was addressing her own Oscar, a well-earned award for Jezebel in 1939.
