No Oscar for her…
Vanessa Williams turns “Desperate” for ABC
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Actress Vanessa Williams will trade her scheming ways on TV comedy “Ugly Betty” for a role on a show where just about everyone seems to be plotting something: “Desperate Housewives.”
On the strength of her singing talents, Williams staged a comeback with her 1988 debut album “The Right Stuff.” After that, she scored hits with such songs as “Save the Best for Last” and won an Academy Award, a Golden Globe and a Grammy for her song “Colors of the Wind” from the 1995 movie “Pocahontas.”
She DID NOT win an Academy Award for Colors of Wind. The singers of songs DO NOT get the award….only the the artist(s) that write the music and lyrics, which Ms. Williams (for all of her many talents) DID NOT do…
Does anyone check your facts BEFORE you publish?!?!?!?!?
