Academy Awards

In 1982, Stanwyck was honored with an honorary Oscar, eight years before her death. Up until that award, Stanwyck had been nominated four separate times, first in 1938 for “Stella Dallas,” next in 1942 for “Ball of Fire,” third in 1945 for “Double Indemnity,” and a fourth time for “Sorry, Wrong Number” in 1949.

Of the honorary Oscar ceremony, Paul Sheehan of GoldDerby.com said, “She basked in the standing ovation and then made her way to the podium. There she acknowledged the passing of [William] Holden just four months earlier saying, ‘He always wished that I would get an Oscar and so, tonight, my golden boy, you got your wish!’”

Golden Globes

Two TV shows resulted in three nominates and two wins for Stanwyck, “The Thorn Birds” and “The Big Valley,” which she was on for over five years. With “The Thorn Birds,” Stanwyck finally won that seemingly unattainable Golden Globe in 1984.

Emmys

Between 1961 and 1983, Stanwyck was nominated for Emmys twice for her role on “The Big Valley,” and she won for that same role in 1966. Her other two Emmy wins came from her 1960 show “The Barbara Stanwyck Show,” and “The Thorn Birds” in 1983.

Lifetime Achievement Awards

The American Film Institute granted Stanwyck a Lifetime Achievement Award in 1987 for her long, storied career in the entertainment industry. She was also awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award 20 years earlier by the Screen Actors Guild.

Hollywood Walk of Fame

It’s no surprise that Stanwyck also earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960. Her star is located at 1751 Vine Street.
