Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role 1948
Plays Character That Is Related To The Sex Trade Industry
Anna Christopherson in Anna Christie 1952
Character Is A Prostitute
Eugene O’Neill’s “Anna Christie” is about an ex-prostitute who finds true love. Celeste Holm starred in the title role as Anna Christopherson. This revival performed on Broadway at the City Center in 1952. Celeste would tell the media that the part was “An old vehicle that doesn’t creak.” Strangely the revival only ran for eight performances. She would go from that role straight into being a temporary replacement for Gertrude Lawrence as Mrs. Anna in “The King and I.”
