‘Nicholas’ Gift’ star Jamie Lee Curtis went to Instagram with ‘The Crown‘ spirit.
On November 28, Curtis posted a pair of photos to recall the day she received a Bafta Award from the hands of Anne Princess Royal for her performance in the 1983 comedy film ‘Trading Places.’ Curtis, who is seen in the photos while accepting the award given by the member of the Royal family, captioned the post by telling about the ceremony night.
The actor wrote that in 1983 she flew to London for just a night to receive BAFTA Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role; she added that she had to borrow a dress (which can be seen in the photos) from the late actor Dorrie Thomson Forstmann to attend the ceremony. Curtis continued her message by referring to the historical drama series, ‘The Crown,’ which is now streaming through Netflix, and praised Royal Family, especially Anne Princess Royal, with the following words:
“As I am watching, like everyone else, @thecrownnetflix I’m seeing the amount of service the royal family does in support of the monarchy and the obligation that comes with it, I found this image of Princess Royal Anne congratulating me on my completely unexpected win.”
Curtis described those moments as “thrilling for her” and concluded her caption by writing that she served for her with a smile.
The film, in which Curtis received the award for her performance, ‘Trading Places’ was released on July 8, 1983. Starring Eddie Murphy, Don Ameche, Dan Aykroyd, Denholm Elliott alongside Curtis, the film was directed by John Landis and written by Timothy Harris and Herschel Weingrod. It garnered $90.4 million during its theatrical run and received numerous accolades and nominations including an Academy Award.
