Vanessa Redgrave
1978: During her acceptance speech for supporting actress for "Julia," Vanessa Redgrave, who had funded a documentary supporting a Palestinian homeland, railed against "Zionist hoodlums." Paddy Chayefsky, who followed her onstage, said, "A simple 'thank you' would have been sufficient." Joe Kennedy / Los Angeles Times
