Kitt may have died on Christmas Day 2008, but she's still collecting honors. At last night's Daytime Emmy Awards, she won for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program for her performance as Cool Cat on Nickelodeon's The Wonder Pets. Cool Cat sounds like a role tailor-made for her.
This is her fourth Emmy. She won Daytime Emmys in the same category in 2008 and 2009. She also won a primetime Emmy for Outstanding Single Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Drama for I Spy in 1966. Then there are her two Tony nominations, her Drama Desk Award nomination, her Image Award nomination, and on and on.
