“[I]n times like this I think of Tammy and I’m inspired by her radical acts of love.”

A big congratulations to last night’s “Best Actress in a Starring Role” Oscar winner, Jessica Chastain (Class of 1998) for her turn as Tammy Faye in The Eyes of Tammy Faye.

The film follows the rise, fall, and redemption of the singing televangelist Tammy Faye as she comes to terms with her extravagant husband. Chastain did her own singing.

The Eyes of Tammy Faye also won the “Best Achievement in Makeup and Hairstyling” award. It can be rented on Amazon Prime or seen on HBO Max with a subscription.
