Sir Sidney Poitier, KBE (born February 20, 1927), is a Bahamian-American actor, film director, author and diplomat.
Poitier was the first male actor of African descent to be nominated for a competitive Academy Award (for The Defiant Ones, 1958). He was also the first actor of African descent to win the Academy Award for Best Actor (for Lilies of the Field in 1963).
In 2002, Poitier received the 2001 Honorary Academy Award for his overall contribution to American cinema. With the death of Ernest Borgnine in 2012, he became the oldest living man to have won the Academy Award for Best Actor.
Alan J was first and correct with:
Not sure... but I know Henry Fonda's getting pretty old
member in Once Upon a Time in the West?
Henry Fonda as a bad guy...
those ice-blue eyes...
(Clint's Oscar is for directing, and he's the oldest living recipient of that award.)
The all-knowing Wikipedia tells me it's Sidney Poitier. Otherwise I had no idea.
Nice rebuttal to Dan. We're permanent absentee ballot voters, and voted Monday. I have no words to describe how awesome I felt, voting for the first black president and the first woman president in the same century, in my lifetime. I dreamed of this as a George McGovern supporter when I first voted in 1973. Our kids are so fortunate.

In my mind, I think the answer is Sidney P. He sure is great in movies.
Kirk Douglas (99 years old)
(Kirk Douglas is the oldest living nominee - he's been nominated 3 times (1950, 1953, and 1957), but never won for acting. He was awarded a Lifetime Achievement (Honorary) Oscar in 1996.)

I applaud you for being fair enough to publish letters from people you don't agree with. And thank you for then doing a great smackdown of the content and the letter writer.
BTW so happy seeing caterpillar pictures again. Great pictures as always. Happy to see you're back in the butterfly business.
Virginia has kindly allowed me to vote early because I'm handicapped--mobility issues, not mental. I had not thought before of allowing my sexual organs to vote. My usual process is to determine the best qualified candidate and vote for that person, male or female.
In this election, my vee-jay, my breasts, my brain, and ALL my organs proudly, happily voted for Hillary Clinton.
We are all only temporarily able bodied.

SyFy has the movie 'Shutter Island', followed by the movie '400 Days'.
Dave Chappelle makes his "Saturday Night Live" hosting debut Nov. 12 with musical guest A Tribe Called Quest.
Chappelle, who famously walked away from his Comedy Central program "Chappelle's Show" in 2005 after signing a $50 million contract, will host the first post-election "SNL."
Tribe will perform from their first studio album in 18 years, "We Got It From Here ... Thank You 4 Your Service" due out Nov. 11. The new album will be the last to feature founding member Phife Dawg who died in March.
After a prolonged hiatus Chappelle returned to stand-up in 2014 playing several large scale venues including Radio City Music Hall. But for most of 2016 he's been playing smaller, intimate shows including a scheduled stand-up performance this Friday at The Cutting Room in NYC.
The Simpsons have traveled the world, saved Springfield from annihilation and even stepped into virtual reality, but the beloved animated family is entering new ground as it heads toward a record-breaking 30th season.
"The Simpsons" has been renewed for two more seasons running until 2019, Twenty-First Century Fox Inc's Fox Broadcasting said on Friday, meaning it will break the record for most episodes of any scripted television show in U.S. history.
"The Simpsons" is currently in its 28th season, with just over 600 episodes aired. By 2019, it will have outpaced western TV drama "Gunsmoke," which concluded after 635 episodes in 1975.
"Take that 'Gunsmoke!' You lost a race you didn't even know you were running!," Homer Simpson said in a statement from Fox.
An "extremely rare" handwritten poem by Anne Frank, penned shortly before she went into hiding from the Nazis, is to be auctioned and could fetch up to 50,000 euros ($55,000), the auctioneers said Thursday.
The poem was written in the friendship book of the older sister of Anne's best friend, and is signed by the Jewish teenager and dated March 28, 1942, auctioneers Bubb Kuyper said.
The 12-line long text, written with black ink on white paper, is reportedly only the fourth time that something in the young diarist's handwriting has gone up for sale, according to the Dutch daily NRC.next.
The poem, which had been written into the book belonging to "Cricri" van Maarsen, the oldest sister of Frank's friend Jacqueline, is "a typically edifying poem of the sort that was often written" into friendship books, the auctioneers said.
The first four lines were probably copied from a 1938 periodical, but the following four lines have so far not been traced to another source.

On a warm October Sunday in Beverly Hills, Wang Jianlin, China's richest man and the chairman of Dalian Wanda Group, made his way to a conference room adjacent to the bar at the Montage hotel. Joining Wang and his Beijing entourage were executives of Dick Clark Productions, the prolific production company behind awards shows including the Golden Globe Awards, as well as several members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which puts on the Globes each year.
The meet-and-greet, organized to introduce HFPA members and their counsel to the company that was in discussions to buy Dick Clark, is said to have been a cordial back-and-forth, with the journalists asking questions about Wanda's plans for the company and Wang expressing his desire to maintain business as usual, with the current leadership of chairman Peter Guber, CEO Allen Shapiro and president Michael Mahan staying on board via long-term employment agreements, while owner Todd Boehly would remain an advisor to Wanda.
Now Wanda has finalized its purchase of Dick Clark, moving the Chinese company into the television business for the first time. The sale price is $1 billion, the companies announced Thursday in a joint press release.
"We are excited to partner with such an iconic company and look forward to supporting the management team as they continue to build the company and expand upon its enormous legacy," Xiaoma Lu, CEO of Wanda Investment Company, said in a statement.
Fox "News" Channel apologized Friday for an inaccurate report this week that Hillary Clinton would likely be indicted as a result of an investigation by the FBI into the Clinton Foundation.
Fox's Bret Baier, who initially reported on the case Wednesday, said Friday that "it was a mistake, and for that I'm sorry."
Fox's report, less than a week before Election Day, was a potential bombshell - if it held up.
Baier began walking back his report the next day, saying that his phrasing had been inartful. "Well, that wasn't just inartful, it was a mistake," he said Friday.
"Indictment obviously is a very loaded word ... especially in this atmosphere, and no one knows if there would or would not be an indictment no matter how strong investigators feel their evidence is," he said. Baier hasn't identified the sources for his original report.

Uganda's High Court on Friday ordered the closure of a chain of low-cost private schools backed by Microsoft and Facebook founders Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg.
Judge Patricia Basaza Wasswa ruled the 63 Bridge International Academies provided unsanitary learning conditions, used unqualified teachers and were not properly licensed.
The ruling is a blow to Bridge International which has expanded rapidly since its inception in 2008 offering cheap, standardised, technology-driven education in developing countries in Africa and Asia.
Under the Bridge International model teachers read scripted lessons word-for-word from a tablet computer that also records student attendance and assessments. Gates' and Zuckerberg's foundations are among the company's high-profile backers.
In Uganda, government inspectors said children were being taught in sub-standard facilities and unsanitary conditions.
A Pennsylvania appeals court has overturned the disorderly conduct conviction of a man who gave his ex-wife the middle finger.
The gesture was not obscene, which would allow it to be criminalized consistent with the First Amendment, a three-judge panel found.
Jason Waugaman allegedly made the gesture after dropping off his two children in 2014. His ex-wife told police he extended the finger as he peeled out of a parking lot.
Though acquitted of reckless endangerment tied to his driving, Judge Anthony Mariani convicted him of disorderly conduct by making an obscene gesture, as his kids "may well have seen their father's conduct in relation to their mother as explicitly sexual."
All three Pennsylvania Superior Court appeals judges agreed this week with overturning the conviction, which the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office did not defend.

A set of broken stones covered with etchings of lines and squares, discovered at a 5,000-year-old sacred site in Denmark, may be some of humankind's earliest maps, according to archaeologists.
The researchers think the inscribed stones are symbolic maps of local landscapes, and were perhaps used in rituals by Stone Age farmers who hoped to magically influence the sun and the fertility of their farmlands.
Fragments of 10 of the "map stones" or "landscape stones" were found in June, during excavations of a round, earth-walled enclosure at the Vasagard archaeological site on Bornholm, a Danish island in the Baltic Sea.
Excavations of the enclosure since the 1990s have found hundreds of broken flat stones inscribed with patterns of radiating straight lines, called "sun stones " or "solar stones" ("solsten"in Danish). Archaeologists have said these artifacts are likely from the rituals of a Neolithic sun-worshipping religion that existed about 5,000 years ago.
But the map stones are inscribed with squares and lines that look like fields, fences and plants, said archaeologist Flemming Kaul, the curator and senior researcher in prehistory at the National Museum of Denmark.
The landscape is virtually treeless around a coastal hub town above Alaska's Arctic Circle, where even summer temperatures are too cold for boreal roots to take hold.
Amid these unforgiving conditions, a creative kind of farming is sprouting up in the largely Inupiat community of Kotzebue.
A subsidiary of a local Native corporation is using hydroponics technology to grow produce inside an insulated, 40-foot shipping container equipped with glowing magenta LED lights. Arctic Greens is harvesting kale, various lettuces, basil and other greens weekly from the soil-free system and selling them at the supermarket in the community of nearly 3,300.
The venture is the first of its kind north of the Arctic Circle, according to the manufacturer of Kotzebue's pesticide-free system. The goal is to set up similar systems in partnerships with other rural communities far from Alaska's minimal road system - where steeply priced vegetables can be more than a week in transit and past their prime by the time they arrive at local stores.
