I frickin' LOVE you, Julie Andrews!

I've been chillin' on my sofa watching The Sound of Music on blu-ray, nagging my husband by naming all of the movies I love Julie Andrews in, and just how awesome she is in general.  I finally decided to leave him alone and get on here to bug y'all instead.

Seriously, she rocks my socks off. To prove my point, I'm giving y'all my favorite roles of this fantabulous lady:

Mary Poppins (Mary Poppins)
I could watch Julie and Dick Van Dyke sing and dance around for hours.

Maria von Trapp (The Sound of Music)
LOVE.LOVE.LOVE her in this.  The kids are adorable, too!

Queen Clarisse Renaldi (The Princess Diaries) 
Only Julie Andrews could get away with "knighting" a streetcar driver and police officer to get out of a ticket.

Queen Lillian (Shrek films)
Even in cartoon version, she rocks.

Victoria Grant/Count Victor Grazinski (Victor Victoria)
If you've never seen this (many people haven't), GO RENT IT NOW.  I'll wait.



Did you get it?  (I'm assuming we all have Netflix, of course.)

Last, but not least:

Cinderella (Rodgers and Hammerstein)
The only Cinderella better is the Disney version, and she was only marginally better.

 Did I miss any?


  1. Julie Andrews is an absolute goddess. Have you see/heard her sing when she was really really young?

    Check this:

    Incredible!! She is my idol.

  2. That Victor Victoria movie looks interesting. I'm assuming her character poses as both sexes? Julie Andrews is a great actress, btw, I completely agree.

  3. I love Mary Poppins it never gets old and i never get too old to watch it. Dick Van Dyke was also awesome in it. My favourite part is the tea party on the ceiling it always makes me laugh.

  4. I like her also. Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music are both favorites.
