Oscar and Julie Christie

Oscar and Julie Christie

April 19, 1966: Actress Julie Christie meets a throng of photographers and reporters at the Beverly Hills Hotel the morning after winning her Best Actress Oscar for “Darling,” in which she portrayed a model in London’s swinging ’60s.

Julie Andrews had won the best actress Oscar in 1965 for “Mary Poppins,” and was expected to win again for “The Sound of Music.”

When Christie was asked whether she thought she had a chance of winning, she replied, “Good God, no.”

“The Sound of Music” did win the best picture Oscar, beating out “Dr. Zhivago.” Christie had the role of Lara Antipova in “Zhivago.”
