Check out this video of Angela Lansbury receiving her honorary Oscar at the 2013 Governors Awards. She is not only a living legend, entertainment royalty, but a prime example of dedication to one’s craft and finding a place in the heart of millions. From her Academy Award nomination in the film noir “Gas Light” to the voice of Mrs. Potts in “Beauty and the Beast,” not to mention her 12 years as her most iconic character Jessica Fletcher in “Murder, She Wrote,” this award is long-deserved.
