During her long career, she was nominated a record 12 times for Best Actress; she won four times, also a record. Her roles ran the gamut, from screwball comedy (Bringing Up Baby, to romantic comedy (The Philadelphia Story, for which she won her second Oscar), to drama (Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?, her third Oscar), to films that mixed several genres On Golden Pond, her fourth and final Oscar).
She will be missed.
