In 1977 Dunaway won an Oscar for her portrayal of Diana Christensen in “Network.” It was for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

“It’s the kind of showy performance that Oscar voters tend to overvalue at the expense of more subtle work, but there are times when showy is both appropriate and superlatively done, and this is one of them,” said Mike D’Angelo in The Dissolve of Dunaway’s performance in the film.

She was nominated for Oscars for her performances in “Chinatown” and “Bonnie and Clyde,” but didn’t win.

She also won a Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture Actress in a Drama in 1977 for “Network,” and another in 1985 for the TV mini series “Ellis.” Her portrayal of Wilhelmina Cooper in 1998’s TV movie “Gia” also earned her a Golden Globe. She was nominated for many others from “Bonnie and Clyde” in 1967 to “Running Mates” in 2001.

In 1994 Dunaway won a Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series. “Columbo” was the series and the actress played Laura Staton in an episode entitled “It’s all in the game.”

Early in her career, she won awards with promise, including a BAFTA Award for Most Promising Newcomer to Leading Film Roles for “Bonnie and Clyde” and “Hurry Sundown,” both released in 1967. She was nominated for BAFTA’s Best Actress for “Network” and “Chinatown,” too, but wasn’t selected.

Regarding “Bonnie and Clyde,” reviewer Roger Ebert said, “The performances throughout are flawless. Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway, in the title roles, surpass anything they have done on the screen before and establish themselves (somewhat to my surprise) as major actors.”

At the Chicago International Film Festival in 2001 she won a Career Achievement Award and a Golden Laurel for Female Dramatic Performance in “Bonnie and Clyde.” But perhaps her most lasting achievement was a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1996, a literal cementing of her acting prowess.
