Moore was nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress for her performance in the 1959 film Imitation of Life. Arnett Moore, Juanita’s nephew, will present an illustrated talk on her life and career at 1pm (free with museum admission) followed by the unveiling of her star on The MAX Walk of Fame (free and open to the public).
