#12: Sally Field

By Kristin Harris

Sally Field is an actor and director who has received two Academy Awards among many other accolades. She began her career in television in the series Gidget in the mid 60’s. Her greatest success came when she shifted to more serious roles in film, winning an Oscar for her portrayal of Norma Rae, union organizer.

In the 2000’s she returned to television and in 2001 fulfilled a personal dream by debuting on Broadway. As a director, Field is known for the television films, miniseries and a feature film. In 2014, she was presented with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and in 2019 received the Kennedy Center Honors.
