At this year’s Oscars, Sally Field, celebrated for her memorable performances in beloved films like “Mrs. Doubtfire” and “Places in the Heart,” graced the stage in a breathtaking white gown paired with a chic curly bob hairstyle.

Teaming up with fellow esteemed actresses Jessica Lange, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lawrence, and Michelle Yeoh, they presented the award for Best Actress in a Leading Role, a category each of them had triumphed in previously.

As the winner, Emma Stone, accepted the accolade for her role in “Poor Things,” Sally, aged 77, enveloped her in a heartfelt embrace, delighting viewers worldwide.

Social media erupted with admiration for Sally’s timeless elegance, with one fan expressing, “Sally Field is still stunning.”

Recalling Sally’s iconic Oscar speech from 1985 when she clinched Best Actress for “Places in the Heart,” one user shared a GIF with the caption: “#sallyfield looking FABULOUS as always.”

Viewers also noted the maternal tenderness in Sally’s interaction with Emma Stone. “Sally Field speaking to Emma Stone is like a mother speaking to a daughter,” one viewer remarked on the touching moment.

Emma Stone herself conveyed her admiration for Sally, saying, “Sally Field, I’ve had the privilege to work with three times. We share the same birthday. I just adore her, and what she was saying — all those women I admire so much and look up to, so it was truly special.”

Sally’s illustrious career spans over six decades, commencing with minor film roles like “Moon Pilot” in 1962 and blossoming into television stardom with series such as “Gidget,” “The Flying Nun,” and “The Girl with Something Extra” in the ’70s. Along the journey, she has garnered numerous accolades, including two Academy Awards, multiple Emmy Awards, and two Golden Globes.

Reflecting on her journey after receiving the SAG Lifetime Achievement award last year, Sally shared insights into her resilient spirit in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “I wasn’t trying to prove myself… The more complex roles I could attain, the more facets of myself I could uncover,” she disclosed.

Growing up in a working-class show business family, Sally gained firsthand understanding that the entertainment industry is anything but glamorous. “It’s not glamorous, it’s not easy,” she confessed, emphasizing the dedication and perseverance essential to flourish in showbiz.
