21 Famous Singers Who Won An Academy Award
In 1969, the legendary Barbra (who’s one of the few to have received an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony) won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her very first role in Funny Girl. She shared the award with actress Katharine Hepburn, who also won for her role in The Lion in Winter because of a tie in the category. Eight years later, she won her second Academy Award for Best Original Song for “Evergreen,” which was made for the OG A Star Is Born. The song also earned her two Golden Globes: one for Best Actress in a Motion Picture (Comedy or Musical) and one for Best Original Song.
