By    |   Friday, 08 May 2015 11:04 AM

When Ingrid Bergman was lured to Hollywood to start acting in movies, she didn't have the look that directors sought out for leading ladies and couldn't speak hardly any English at all. However, it wasn't long before she was turning heads on the big screen and becoming one of the biggest actresses in the world.

The success with fans turned into appreciation by critics, and soon Bergman was taking home numerous awards. In time, Bergman enjoyed a very successful career for a woman who came to the United States with just a dream of becoming an actress.

Here is a look at Ingrid Bergman's awards and highlights from her illustrious and storied career as an actress:

Academy Awards

Ingrid Bergman broke out with "Casablanca," but it wasn't until 1944 that "Gaslight" brought Bergman her first statuette. The film is about a woman who believes that the man she married might have murdered her aunt many years before. Bergman won for Best Actress in a Leading Role.

Bergman picked up two more nominations after that, but then disappeared from the scene after her affair with Roberto Rossellini. She made her return with "Anastasia" in 1956, where she portrays a woman who might be the heir to the last Russian Czars. Bergman won an Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role for this return. She would win her third Oscar in 1975 for her supporting role in "Murder on the Orient Express" and finished her career with three Oscar wins and four nominations.

Golden Globes Awards

Ingrid Bergman was even more successful at the Golden Globes. Her first Golden Globes Award was for the same movie that she won her first Oscar with "Gaslight." She followed that with a win in 1946 for "The Bells of Saint Mary's," starring alongside Bing Crosby.

During her career, Bergman won four Golden Globes Awards and was nominated for three more. Bergman's career came to an end after the television movie "A Woman Called Golda." Bergman portrays Golda Meir, the woman who became the prime minister of Israel. Bergman was awarded the Golden Globes award for Best Actress, but she died four months after the movie premiered, receiving her award posthumously.

Other Honors

Outside of "Casablanca," the role that Bergman is most famous for is the Alfred Hitchcock movie "Notorious." That is why it is interesting neither of those movies received an Oscar or Golden Globes nomination. However, "Notorious" did earn Bergman a BAMBI Award for media that positively affects and inspires the German public.

Ingrid Bergman received the biggest honor of all celebrities, when she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The star was awarded to her in 1960 and sits on the North side of the 6700 block of Hollywood Boulevard.
