What a career. Numerous Baftas, Academy Awards, Golden Globes — you name it and Petit Poitier has probably won it. Not bad, considering he could barely read until he was seventeen. Growing up in Nassau and then Miami, young Sidney was not inclined towards acting until he moved to NYC and joined the army. I guess acting is way better than potentially getting killed, innit. Blessed with the kind of magnetic beauty that is made for screen tests, Mr Poitier soon became a popular dramatic film actor and won his first Oscar at a mere thirty six years of age. Still incredibly handsome and wonderful, Sid is now the Bahamian ambassador for Japan(!) and Obama himself awarded Poitier the highest civilian honour in 2009. SCORE.
