The 76-year-old Loren was the first performer to win an Oscar for a non-English speaking role. She won lead actress for Vittorio De Sica's "Two Women," which was released in the United States in 1961. De Sica also directed her to another Oscar nomination in 1964's "Marriage Italian Style," in which she appeared with frequent costar Marcello Mastroianni. She also received an honorary award in 1990 as "one of the genuine treasures of world cinema."
She came to Hollywood to make her first American film, "The Pride and the Passion" in 1957. She was unforgetable in Rob Marshall's 2009 musical "Nine."
