And the Oscar Went to.... Maureen O’Hara by Nick Thomas

F

ood, family, and fun are usually part of Christmas Day celebrations for many families. The festivity may also include watching old Christmas movies, with the 1947 version of “Miracle on 34th Street” being a traditional favorite. In additional to its Christmas message, the film is remembered for its cast including Edmund Gwenn who won the Oscar for his role as Kris Kringle, adorable 9-year-old Natalie Wood as Susan, and feisty Maureen O’Hara who played her mother. Although she starred in other Hollywood classics such as “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” (1939), “How Green Was My Valley” (1941), and the original “The Parent Trap” (1961), O’Hara was never even nominated for a competitive Oscar. Last month, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences finally recognized Ms. O’Hara’s lifetime achievement in film when the 94-year-old Irish actress was presented with an Honorary Oscar during the 6th Annual Governors Awards. “It was very exciting news and I’m so proud to be recognized by my peers,” said O’Hara, from Boise, Idaho, where she has lived with family since 2012.
