About Celeste Holm (1917 – 2012)

A stage actress from New York, Celeste Holm played the part of Annie in the original OKLAHOMA.

In 1949, Celeste Holm was again nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal of Sister Scholastica, a nun and former tennis pro, whose goal, in coming to a small, New England town with another nun from France, is to open a children's hospital. Her character is frustrated by a series of comic misadventures in COME TO THE STABLE.

In 1950, she was a supporting player in ALL ABOUT EVE, playing Karen, the wife of the playwright, just one of a hornet's nest of manipulators, buzzing around glamorous, controlling Eve, played by Bette Davis.  Holm was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her performance.

With the advent of television, Holm found an immediate home in the new medium. She was very busy, acting in TV movies, mini-series, and TV shows. Her last, two full-time TV series were CBS's PROMISELAND;( from 1996-1999), and THE BEAT; (2000). She continued on with her acting in guest star work in WHOOPI amd THIRD WATCH TV SHOWS.

During 2012, the last year of her life when she was ninety-five years old, she played main characters in two films, DRIVING ME CRAZY, and COLLEGE DEBTS.
