Sidney Lumet Has Passed Away

April 9, 2011 / Posted by:

As you’re soothing your hangover with a bacon stuffed bagel, Sidney Lumet is walking down the orientation hall of heaven rolling his eyes at all the angels doing their own “I’M MAD AS HELL….!!!” Network impersonations for him. That’s because legendary Oscar-winning director Sidney Lumet died of lymphoma at his home in NYC this morning. Sidney was 86.

Sidney started off his career directing live TV before making his feature film debut with 12 Angry Men. Sidney later went on to direct Serpico, Murder on the Orient Express, Network, Dog Day Afternoon, Equus, Deathtrap, the Sunday morning stoner classic The Wiz and my personal favorite Gloria starring Sharon Stone. Sidney’s last film was Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead. Fun little fact: Sidney was married to Mah Boo’s mom Gloria Vanderbilt for 7 years.

Sidney is survived by his wife, 2 children, 2 stepchildren, 9 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild.

Rest in peace, Sidney.
