Oscars 2015: Julie Andrews praises Lady Gaga's 'Sound of Music' performance
After Julie hugged Lady Gaga, she reminisced about The Sound of Music, and how time passed by so fast. "I blinked, and suddenly here I am."
After a brief speech on the importance of music in a film, she presented the nominees for Best Original Score, which was eventually won by The Grand Budapest Hotel. (LIVE UPDATES: Oscars 2015)
In The Sound of Music, Julie Andrews played nun-turned-governess Maria assigned to care for the children of strict Captain Von Trapp (Christopher Plummer) during the war.
Julie Andrews had a wide vocal range back in the day, but an operation gone wrong ruined her vocal chords in the process, preventing her from singing the same way again. That doesn't, however, diminish her charm or her acting chops; she remains a cinematic icon, whose work stands the test of time. – Rappler.com
