Throughout her 66-year career, Katharine Hepburn appeared in 44 feature films, eight television movies and 33 plays. In a career that spanned 62 years as a leading lady, Hepburn was best known for playing strong-willed, sophisticated women in both dramas and comedies. She is the winner of a record four Academy Awards for Best Actress and her twelve total Academy Award nominations are surpassed by only Meryl Streep.
