Lady Sings the Blues

This seminal biopic about jazz legend Billie Holiday was nominated for five Oscars in 1973, including a Best Actress nod for Diana Ross. The film, based on Holiday's autobiography and named for one of her most popular songs, spawned a hugely successful soundtrack album as well.
