2011 was a great year for Doris with the release of "My Heart" and it continues into 2012 with her being honoured by the LA film critics.

Image
From the LAFCA press release:

"Still one of the top box office performers of all time, Doris Day starred onscreen alongside some of the biggest male stars of her day, including Clark Gable, James Stewart, Cary Grant, Jack Lemmon, David Niven and of course Rock Hudson. Her screen credits include 'Calamity Jane,' 'The Man Who Knew Too Much,' 'The Tunnel of Love,' 'Pillow Talk,' 'Lover Come Back' and 'That Touch of Mink.' Her career as a singer was just as impressive; indeed, Day received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement award in 2008. She released more than two dozen albums, experiencing Billboard chart success and in 1957 winning an Academy Award for Best Original Song for 'Que Sera Sera,' which would become her signature tune. A passionate animal rights activist for several decades, Day just this year released an album of jazz standards and cover tunes produced by her late son, Terry Melcher, her first new material in more than four decades.

"Founded in 1975, The Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LAFCA) is comprised of Los Angeles-based, professional film critics working in the Los Angeles print and electronic media. Each December, LAFCA members vote on the year’s Achievement Awards, honoring screen excellence on both sides of the camera. Plaques of recognition are then presented to winners during LAFCA’s annual awards ceremony, held in mid-January.

"Aside from honoring each year’s outstanding cinematic achievements, LAFCA has also makes a point to look back and pay tribute to distinguished industry veterans with its annual Career Achievement Award, which is announced in October, as well as to look forward by spotlighting fresh, promising talent with its annual New Generation Award. In addition, over the past three decades, LAFCA has sponsored and hosted numerous film panels and events and donated funds to various Los Angeles film organizations, especially where film preservation was concerned."

I agree, Ray. Bryan, you really outdid yourself! Great banner...

Now, I heard a rumor that Doris was going to tape a 'thanking' video, since she isn't going to attend the awards. Does anyone know about that? That would be something!

Thanks! I thought that the acknowledgement deserved a bit of a splash - a great achievement and well deserved, as I'm sure you'll all agree. I read her saying that she's been watching some of her films again and having a good laugh - I assume she means the comedy ones! - I think that is great because she used to not be able to watch them because she'd see so much that she thought she should have done differently so I think it is all helping her to see how good she was - in a modest Doris kind of way, of course!

I hope the stuffed-shirts at the Oscars will now finally give her the Oscar that many think is long overdue - now that she is 'fashionable' again.

I am trying to be nice but if the Oscar people are so jealous and stupid not to hail Doris then that is their problem. Doris was nominated once and being number one at the movie box office for five years is better than a special Oscar. Amen to Oscar snobs! Who needs them! :evil:

It is always thrilling to know that Doris has received yet another award - the Career Achievement Award is now the latest and is thoroughly deserved by Doris. Here's to another fantastic year for her as was 2011 and many many more to come. Good on you DD!!

The Oscar people want Doris to *appear* at the award ceremonies. She won't do it and apparently told them so. She told them to send the award up to Carmel. She is correct, of course, that receiving the award should not be predicated on her appearing there, but they have their "rules", I guess.
