Oscar Has Stayed in the Family
Mar. 27, 2000
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Sunday's Oscar ceremony added to a brief but notable list of parent-child honorees.
Angelina Jolie's win for best supporting actress for her role in ``Girl, Interrupted'' came 21 years after her father, Jon Voight, was awarded best actor for ``Coming Home.'' Born Angelina Jolie Voight to the actor and then-wife Marcheline Bertrand, Jolie dropped her famous surname when she started acting.
Other Oscar family ties over the years include:
_ Michael Douglas won an Academy Award for producing the 1975 best picture ``One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest'' and also for best actor in 1987 for ``Wall Street.'' Father Kirk Douglas won an honorary Oscar in 1995.
_ Jane Fonda won best actress for her role in ``Klute'' in 1971 and again in 1978 for ``Coming Home.'' Father Henry Fonda received an honorary Oscar in 1980 and a best actor award for ``On Golden Pond'' in 1981.
_ Vincente Minnelli won best director for ``Gigi'' in 1958. In 1972, daughter Liza Minnelli won best actress for ``Cabaret.''
_ The Oscar has been in Hollywood's Huston family for three generations. John Huston won for directing the 1948 classic ``The Treasure of the Sierra Madre,'' and father Walter won for supporting actor in the same film. In 1985, John Huston directed daughter Angelica to a best supporting actress award in ``Prizzi's Honor.''
