Golden Globe Award Winner Pia Zadora!

Pia Zadora won the "Best Female Newcomer" at the Golden Globes for her role in the 1982 neo noir film BUTTERFLY, based on the classic James M. Cain novel. This was after her husband, Turkish cosmetic and liquor mogul Meshulam Riklis wined and dined members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association in Las Vegas and treated them to Pia's cabaret act, resulting accusations that the award had been "bought". You be the judge.
I personally prefer this performance in an amazing Dubonnet commercial from the 80s.
