    Celeste Holm dies today at the age of 95. She won an oscar in 948 for “Gentlemans Agreement” and she also starred in countless films including “All About Eve” and “Come to the Stable”. RIP 🙂

    I loved her acting so much!!

    RIP Celeste.  She was a wonderful actress and a wonderful person.

    So who is now the oldest living Best Supporting Actress winner?

    Eva Marie Saint won it in 1954 and she is 88 years old today, so that would make her the oldest living supporting actress winner.

    I knew that she was old, but it’s still shocking.

    I just saw All About Eve a year ago for the first time and she was shining in it! What a beautiful woman, what a beautiful performance: one of the greatest I have ever seen. 

    Rest in Peace Celeste!

    It’s so weird i was watching this 1948 film with Olivia De Havilland called “The snake pit” which Celeste had a supporting role in, and later in the day she dies. 🙁    But she had a FANTASTIC career and she will be remembered. 🙂

    Ms Holm was famously out and about in many NYC arts circles, likely until recent years. I met her at the Museum of Modern Art when she asked me if I knew where an Oscar doc screening was being shown (the finalists in these categories screen there every year). I immediately recognized her, but as is my habit didn’t say so, but I think she caught that I knew who she was. She seemed very conscientious about these – I told a friend who worked there, and said she was one of the most regular attendees of the docs, shorts and FL finalists every year.

    A truly great actress and a wonderful lady.. i met her once while dining on restaurant row on
    west 46th street in the city….I told her that my favorite film of all time is  ALL ABOUT EVE.
    She was truly touched and when i told her that i thought her performance in that film was
    one of my all-time favorite of hers..she beamed that gorgeous wide smile of hers..
    Tomorrow i will watch GENTLEMEN’S AGREEMENT and ALL ABOUT EVE  back to back..

    Among her many memorable performances, Celeste Holm was vital and integral to the success of one of the best and funniest movies ever made: ALL ABOUT EVE.

    She will be missed.

    I remember her fondly from her brief stint on the ABC daytime soap opera “Loving” which she played TWO roles, first in 1986 as Lydia Woodhouse (a small role) and again in 1991-1992 as Isabelle Dwyer Alden #2.  She had a strong presence and was a gifted actress.   I am not all that familar with her film work but this is a great loss.
