Catherine’s husband, Michael Douglas, is also no stranger to winning and accepting awards. He won an Oscar in 1988 for his performance in the film Wall Street. In his acceptance speech, he took the time to mention his legendary father, Kirk Douglas. “My father, who I don’t think ever missed one of my college productions, for his continued support and for helping a son step out of his shadow.
