The Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award honors an individual's outstanding contributions to humanitarian causes.

The Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award honors creative producers, whose bodies of work reflect a consistently high quality of motion picture production.

Anti-LGBT rhetoric Slogans or catchphrases that demean LGBT movement

Anti-LGBT rhetoric are themes, catchphrases, and slogans that have been used against homosexuality or other non-heterosexual sexual orientations in order to demean lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people. They range from the demeaning and the pejorative to expressions of hostility towards homosexuality which are based on religious, medical, or moral grounds. It is a form of hate speech which is illegal in countries such as the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden.

This is a list of notable events in the history of LGBT rights that took place in the year 1970.

Ingrid Bergman performances

Ingrid Bergman was a multilingual, Academy Award-winning actress born in Stockholm, conversant in Swedish, German, English, Italian and French. She had been preparing for an acting career all her life. After her mother Frieda died when she was three years old, she was raised by her father Justus Samuel Bergman, a professional photographer who encouraged her to pose and act in front of the camera. As a young woman, she was shy, taller than the average women of her generation, and somewhat overweight. Acting allowed her to transcend these constraints, enabling her to transform herself into a character. She first appeared as an uncredited extra in the film Landskamp (1932) and was accepted into the Royal Dramatic Theatre of Stockholm as a scholarship student in 1933.
