This 1930s romantic comedy starring Clark Cable is one
of only three films to have ever been awarded all of the
'Big Five' - Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Screenplay, Best
Director, and Best Picture. Silence of the Lambs and One
Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest are the only films to have
equalled the accolade.
The 41st Academy Awards was the first and only time to
date that two artists have been awarded the same prize.
Katharine Hepburn's performance in The Lion in Winter
and Barbara Streisand's portrayal of Fanny Brice in Funny
Girl had the judges torn.
Colin Welland famously shouted "The British Are Coming!"
when he accepted the award for Best Screenplay, which will
go down as one of the best sound bites in Oscar history.
Chariots of Fire went on to win Best Original Score, Best
Picture and Best Costume Design.
Berry won this award for her powerful performance
in romantic drama, Monster's Ball. The fact that
she looked fabulous accepting it, made us love this
moment even more. What can we say, we like a good
old bit of girl power.

flag for creative, strong and stylish women everywhere,

gilt-framed art covers the walls, and intimate booths sit
pretty in the middle of this grand dining room. After
you've been dazzled by the decor, you'll be dazzled by the
food. Patron and Michelin-starred chef, Jason Atherton
may not be there but his innovative recipes are - think
gourmet macaroni cheese with a crisp cauliflower twist

carton with a retro straw. Well, we did say innovative...
High Holborn may not be the first port of call for a fashion
insider in a storm but the new Rosewood Hotel has designs

party since its launch at the end of last year; its roaring log
fire, antique tome-filled bookcase, and crooning pianist are

pronounced 'Lowver'). Hopeless romantics would travel to
its post office to make sure their Valentine's Day cards were

Pride & Prejudice was filmed in the grounds of Stourhead
- will more than make up for it.
