Patricia NealPatricia Neal, who won a Best Actress Oscar for her role in 1963's 'Hud,' died on Sunday morning at her home in Edgarton, Massachusetts, on Martha's Vineyard. The actress, who had lung cancer, was 84 years old.

Neal, born Patsy Louise Neal, started her career on Broadway, receiving a Tony Award as Best Featured Actress in a Play for Lillian Hellman's 'Another Part of the Forest' (1946). She was, in fact, one of the very first Tony Award winners ever, as the 1947 ceremony was the first in the award's history; in recent years until her death, Neal was the only surviving winner from that inaugural ceremony.
