She captured two Tony awards for her work in “Applause” and “Woman of the Year.” She obtained her first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress in 1996’s “The Mirror Has Two Faces.” She received an honorary Academy Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 2009.

 

Bacall married Bogart in 1945, and remained married until his death in 1957. During the marriage, Bacall and Bogart had two children, Stephen Bogart and Leslie Bogart. She later married Jason Robards in 1961, but later divorced in 1969. During her marriage with Robards, Bacall gave birth to Sam Robards.
