Happy 80th birthday, Julie Andrews!

'The Oscars': Julie Andrews Wins Best Actress Oscar in 1965

The Queen of Genovia herself, Julie Andrews, turns 80 today!

The Oscar-winning actress has had quite the illustrious film career and continues to stay in the business, better than ever. However, it wasn't the acting that the England born actress was originally known for, but rather her extremely impressive four-octave singing voice.

From her childhood and throughout her teens, Andrews performed in music halls, and at age 20, booked the impressive role at the London Palladium production of "Cinderella." She then came to dominate Broadway, where her career really took off, nabbing roles in "The Boy Friend" and "My Fair Lady." It wasn't until 1964 when she appeared in "Mary Poppins" that America truly fell in love with her.

Julie Andrews turns 80 years old
After that, Julie Andrews truly became a bona-fide superstar. We decided to gather some of her best work and listed our favorites below. Let us know what you think!

1.) The Sound of Music (1965)
At the time, "The Sound of Music" was the highest grossing movies of its time and continues to be one of the highest grosses movies of all time. We know, you're singing soundtrack in your head right now. Not to mention, she won an Oscar for her role.



2.) Mary Poppins (1964)
How could we have a Julie Andrews list and not include "Mary Poppins!" The Disney film became a classic and helped Julie Andrew propel into Hollywood stardom.



3.) Victor Victoria (1982)
Andrews cast in another singing role, because let's face it, she's amazing. She plays as a woman struggling to make it in the music scene and disguises herself as a man, impersonating a woman. She also received an Oscar nomination for this film.



4.) The Princess Diaries (2001)
Starring opposite a then unknown Anne Hathaway, Andrews plays the Queen of Genovia and naturally she crushes it. Both the first movie, and the sequel, are Oscar worthy, in our opinion.



5.) Shrek 2, Shrek the Third, and Shrek Foreverafter (2004, 2007, 2010)
In some of her best work, Julie Andrews plays yet again, a Queen, but this time, she plays Princess Fiona's mother. Fine work, Julie, fine work.



It's safe to say, we can't help but to love you, Julie Andrews. Happy Birthday, again!
