It's funny how Marilyn Monroe
beat out Doris Day
for this award, with Doris getting nominated for the Oscar and Monroe didn't, nor did Lee Remick that year.
The Globes, it's said is the pre-cursor for Academy Award nominations. Day was Globe-nominated quite a few times for drama and comedy and got only one nomination for the Oscar. Also, look who won for drama. Simone won the Oscar, not Liz. This looks like another "sympathy vote" for both Liz and Marilyn.
Doris didn't leave the ceremonies empy-handed, however, she won the Henrietta Award as the Top Female Star to Rock Hudson's Top Male Star.At the Golden Globes, 1960, Rock Hudson read the nominees and then presented Marilyn Monroe her Best Comedy Actress award for "Some Like It Hot." She defeated Doris Day for that prize. Day and Hudson received the World Film Favorites accolades that same night. So, Doris and Marilyn probably did meet that evening at the Cocoanut Grove!
