Post here for anyone that has died or for an anniversary of a singer, songwriter, actor, author, sports player, etc. You could also say what you appreciated about them.

Keep it nice, keep it neat, keep it clean.

Damn, that's heartbreaking. I feel like so many people just figured she would be still going strong well into her 100s, so I'm not surprised people were thinking it was a hoax at first. And yes, just 17 days shy of her 100th birthday...wow.

Sidney Poitier, the pioneering actor and director who became the first bankable Black leading man in Hollywood, has died at age 94/
Poitier, who was born in the U.S. but grew up in the Bahamas, broke multiple racial barriers in his decades-long career, including when he became the first Black actor to win the Academy Award, for his role in 1963's "Lilies of the Field."
From his first film performance, playing a doctor who treats a bigoted white man in 1950's "No Way Out," he blazed a trail by refusing to play roles that traded on racial stereotypes. He followed his debut film by playing a minister in 1951's "Cry, the Beloved Country," set in apartheid-era South Africa, and then an angsty high schooler in 1954's "The Blackboard Jungle."
Poitier picked up his first Oscar nomination for 1959's "The Defiant Ones," starring with Tony Curtis as two escaped criminals who must work together to elude the authorities. Four years later, he made history by taking home the Best Actor trophy for "Lilies of the Field," starring as a former GI who helps a group of Catholic nuns build a new chapel.
More commercial roles followed, culminating with a trifecta of commercial and critical hits in 1967 — the classroom drama "To Sir, With Love," the crime thriller "In the Heat of the Night" and the romantic drama "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" — that made Poitier the top box office draw of the year.
One of my favorites of his was Sneakers.....with Robert Redford, Dan Aykroyd and the late River Phoenix

Peter Bogdanovich, an American director, writer, actor, producer, critic, and film historian, has died at 82
One of the "New Hollywood" directors, Bogdanovich started as a film journalist until he got hired to work on Roger Corman's The Wild Angels (1966). After that film's success, he directed his own film Targets (1968), a critical success. He gained widespread recognition for his acclaimed coming-of-age film The Last Picture Show (1971). The film received eight Academy Award nominations, including for the Best Picture, with Bogdanovich receiving nominations for Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay.
Following The Last Picture Show, he directed the screwball comedy What's Up, Doc? (1972), a major box office success, and another critical and commercial success, Paper Moon (1973), which earned him a Golden Globe Award for Best Director nomination. His following three films were all critical and commercial failures, including Daisy Miller (1974). He took a three-year hiatus before making a comeback with cult films Saint Jack (1979) and They All Laughed (1981). After his girlfriend Dorothy Stratten's murder, he took another four-year hiatus from filmmaking and wrote a memoir on her death titled The Killing of the Unicorn before making a comeback with Mask (1985), a critical and commercial success. He later went on to direct films such as Noises Off (1992), The Thing Called Love (1993), The Cat's Meow (2001), and She's Funny That Way (2014). As an actor, he is known for his roles in HBO series The Sopranos and Orson Welles's last movie The Other Side of the Wind (2018), which he also helped to finish. He received a Grammy Award for Best Music Film for directing the Tom Petty documentary Runnin' Down a Dream (2007).
