Jane Wyman's memorable acceptance speech upon receiving the Oscar for her role as a deaf-mute in "Johnny Belinda" (1948) went something like this: "I gratefully accept this award for keeping my mouth shut. I think I'll do it again."
In 1954 Wyman made the annual exhibitors' poll of top ten boxoffice stars, placing ninth.
Besides her Oscar win for "Johnny Belinda", Wyman was nominated as Best Actress for "The Yearling" (1946), "The Blue Veil" (1951) and "Magnificent Obsession" (1954). She was also twice nominated for an Emmy for her work on "The Jane Wyman Theatre" in 1957 and 1959.
She received the Golda Meir Award from Hebrew University (1991)
