Doris Day celebrates her 90th birthday year beginning April 3, 2014.
If you have ever enjoyed her songs, movies, t.v. shows, or appreciated her animal welfare advocacy, please sign and click for Doris Day's Oscar now.
Doris Day, a timeless leading lady (and pioneering animal welfare advocate) has been long overlooked by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
We ask that this Oscar organization, its president Cheryl Boone Isaacs, and its actor representatives (Tom Hanks, Ed Begley and Annette Bening) acknowledge and honor their colleague Doris Day and her considerable contributions to the film industry by awarding her an honorary Oscar this year, something the Academy has apparently unconditionally refused to do.
Doris Day has starred in more than 39 films, was voted Top Female Box Office Star four years in a row and remained in the Top 10 for 10 straight years - a record unmatched to this day.
She was nominated for Best Actress for her performance in Pillow Talk . She's been honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association; the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2004; a Grammy Award for Lifetime Achievement in 2008; and the the 2011 Los Angeles Film Critics Career Achievement Award.
And yet she has never even received an honorary Oscar for her talent or her enormous body of work.
On a humanitarian level, she has made the world a better place for animals by boldly standing up for them even before it was acceptable and paved the way for others to do the same and, in the process, made all of society a better place.
She founded the national Spay Day along with a national organization to pass laws to help animals, and still runs the Doris Day Animal Foundation supporting senior pets, rescuing horses, providing grants to needy animal groups and funding scholarships to students who want to help shelters and disadvantaged pets.
Please sign and encourage the Academy to honor Doris Day this year.
