In her review of DANGEROUS (1935), E. Arnot Robertson wrote:

“I think Bette Davis would probably have been burned as a witch if she had lived two or three hundred years ago. She gives the curious feeling of being charged with power which can find no ordinary outlet.”
Bette was nominated for 3 Golden Globes - her first nomination coming for ALL ABOUT EVE (1950).

In 1974, she received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment."
Happy New Year!
“You either have guts or you haven’t... I found her a worker, not a daydreamer.” - Bette on working with Debbie Reynolds in THE CATERED AFFAIR (1956)
