#TBT: Iconic Moments in Beauty History 🌟 A GEENIE series giving flowers to the women and femmes whose beauty and talent sparkled and reigned supreme over time. Today we're recognizing actress, author, and deaf activist - Marlee Matlin 💜 The Moment: We're attending the Oscars 59th Annual Academy Awards in 1987, located at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, California. @themarleematlin is nominated for the major category of "Best Actress" for her performance in "Children of a Lesser God". 🏆 And the oscar goes to... Marlee Matlin! This major achievement marks Matlin as the first (and only) deaf performer to win an Oscar. ✨ The entire lewk is fitting for the current season - We're digging the lacey lavender high-low, a little sweep of blush, pop of berry toned lipstick, and Baby's Breath flowers in her curly updo for an extra floral touch. 🎥 via Oscars (Youtube). Sidenote: It’s been nearly 35 years since Matlin’s breakthrough achievement! The Oscars (and Hollywood at large) needs to do wayyyy better in hiring and recognizing performers with disabilities. Let's give Miss Marlee Matlin her 💐s in the comments!
