Hollywood Star, Maureen O'Hara, Received Her First Oscar At 94 Years Old – A Year Before Her Passing
Maureen O’Hara, despite her roles in over 50 films, including big classic hits like “Miracle on 34th Street” (1947) and the original “The Parent Trap” (1961), was never nominated for an Oscar. But finally, at 94 years old, she received her first ever nomination.
Maureen FitzSimons, who later changed her name to O’Hara, was born on 17 August 1920 in Ranelagh, in the Dublin suburb. She was famously known for her bright red hair and for her remarkable roles, portraying fierce and passionate but at the same time sensible heroines.
