(CBS) Elizabeth Taylor won her second Oscar for Best Actress for the 1966 drama "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" She stars as Martha opposite her then-husband Richard Burton (their first marriage of two), George Segal and Sandy Dennis, who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, in this Mike Nichols-directed adaption of Edward Albee's play.
Taylor won her first Oscar for "BUtterfield 8," a 1960 drama in which she plays a prostitute. She had been nominated for Best Actress three times before that, for "Raintree County" (1957), "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" (1958) and "Suddenly, Last Summer" (1959).
"Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" was nominated for 13 Academy Awards and picked up five. Taylor wasn't at the awards ceremony. Anne Bancroft accepted the award on her behalf.
