An icy, elegant blonde with a knack for playing complex and strong-willed female leads, Academy Award winner Faye Dunaway was an enormously popular actress in films and television during the 1960s and into the 1970s, starring in several films which defined what many would come to call Hollywood's "second Golden Age." During her tenure at the top of the box office, she was a more than capable match for some of the biggest male stars of the period, including Steve McQueen in "The Thomas Crown Affair" (1968), Warren Beatty in "Bonnie and Clyde," (1967), Jack Nicholson in "Chinatown" (1974) and Robert Redford in "Three Days of the Condor" (1975). An overwrought turn as Joan Crawford in the disastrous biopic "Mommie Dearest" (1980) effectively derailed her career - but, at the same time, made her a bit of a camp favorite in the gay community - though she was given infrequent opportunities to display her talents in films and television from the 1980s into the 2010s. In 2017, Dunaway was an unsuspecting culprit in perhaps the greatest shock in Academy Award history when she mistakenly announced that "La La Land" (2016) had won the Oscar for Best Picture instead of the true winner "Moonlight" (2016).
