(FILE PHOTO) In this composite image a comparison has been made between Tina Turner (L) and Actress Angela Bassett. Oscar hype begins this week with the announcement of the nominations for the 69th annual Golden Globes and the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards. Luise Rainer became the first actress to receive an Academy Award for her role in the 1936 biopic 'The Great Ziegfeld,' playing stage performer Anna Held. Over half of the last ten Oscars for best actor or actress have been for performances in a biopic. The trend continues this year with the nominations for actors Michelle Williams, Meryl Streep, Viggo Mortensen, Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio for their roles in 'My Week With Marilyn.' 'The Iron Lady,' 'A Dangerous Method,' 'Moneyball' and 'J Edgar.' ***RIGHT IMAGE***LOS ANGELES, CA - APRIL 2: Actress Angela Bassett talks at the Four Season's Hotel on April 2, 2006 in Los Angeles, California.
