Cher wins Best Actress Academy Award-- In 1988!

Sandra Bullock, Meryl Streep and Helen Mirren are all up for the Best Actress Academy Award this year. But in 1988, the big winner was Cher, for her role as Loretta Castorini in Moonstruck.  Cher plays a 37-year-old accountant engaged to Johnny Cammareri (Danny Aiello), but in love with his younger brother Ronny (played by Nick Cage, in his only tolerable role).  Here is a video of Cher after accepting her Oscar for Best Actress.
