Academy Awards

Dietrich starred in many acclaimed movies, such as 1930's "Blue Angel," 1932's "Shanghai Express" and "Blonde Venus," 1934's "The Scarlet Empress," 1948's "A Foreign Affair," 1957's "Witness for the Prosecution," and 1961's "Judgment at Nuremberg." However, she only received a single nomination by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, which was for her role as Mademoiselle Amy Jolly in 1930's "Morocco." She lost out on the statuette to Marie Dressler, who won the Best Actress Oscar for her performance in "Min and Bill."

Golden Globes

Similar to the Academy Awards, Dietrich received only a single nomination from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which came for her role as Christine in 1957's "Witness for the Prosecution." She lost out to Joanne Woodward, who won for her performance in "The Three Faces of Eve."

Other Awards

On the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, Dietrich's luck turned out to be a little better. In 1962, she earned a Special David Award from the David di Donatello awards, which have taken place in Italy every year since 1955. Dietrich won the Special David statuette for her performance in 1961's "Judgment at Nuremberg," for which she played Mrs. Bertholt, a widow of a slain German general.

Back in the U.S., Dietrich took second place honors for her roles as Mrs. Bertholt at the 1958 Laurel Awards, which were overseen by Motion Picture Exhibitor magazine and given out from 1958 to 1968, and again in 1970 and 1971. The actress who took first place that year for Top Female Dramatic Performance was Elizabeth Taylor in "Raintree County." In 1960, on the same day that the honor was given to contemporary Swedish actress Greta Garbo, Dietrich was given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. The ceremony, which took place on Feb. 8, 1960, gave Dietrich a star located at 6400 Hollywood Boulevard.
