* ''Film/TheLionInWinter'', as Eleanor of Aquitaine (1968) -- The third of her UsefulNotes/AcademyAward-winning roles. Shared the Oscar with Creator/BarbraStreisand for ''Theatre/FunnyGirl'', after the vote ended in a tie. This was only the second time that a tie was declared in an acting category, and the first time ever that an EXACT tie occurred (in the Academy's earliest years, all one had to do was earn within 3 votes of 1st place to tie, which allowed Wallace Beery and Fredric March to share the Best Actor statue of 1932).



!!Tropes commonly associated with her acting:

* SpiritedYoungLady: Not all of her characters were young, but name ''one'' who wasn't spirited!

!!Tropes that fit her personally:

* UsefulNotes/AcademyAward: The only person in history to win 4 acting Oscars. They were all for Best Actress, which also makes her the only female performer to win 3 or more times in the Lead category (the closest an actor has come to this is Daniel Day-Lewis, who won 3 times for Best Actor).
** Also famously tied with Barbara Streisand for Best Actress of 1968. It was her 3rd win, for ''Film/TheLionInWinter'', while Streisand won for "Funny Girl". This was only the second time that a tie was declared in an acting category, and the first time ever that an EXACT tie occurred (in the Academy's earliest years, all one had to do was earn within 3 votes of 1st place to tie, which allowed Wallace Beery and Fredric March to share the Best Actor statue of 1932).
* {{Bifauxnen}}: ''Sylvia Scarlett''
* MistakenForGay: Spencer Tracy initially suspected she was a lesbian.
* OddFriendship: with no less a person than Creator/BrianBlessed when filming Trojan Women
* RealitySubtext: When Spencer Tracy did his "If it's half of what we felt, it's everything" speech in ''Guess Who's Coming to Dinner'', Hepburn is seen standing to the side with tears spilling down her cheeks. That wasn't acting - Tracy's monologue was very obviously about Hepburn, and she knew the man she loved was dying and that it would be the last film they ever did together.
* RedBaron: The Great Kate.
* ThoseTwoActors: She and Spencer Tracy.
** Before that, her and Cary Grant. The two starred with each other in 4 films from 1935-1940.

[[SpellMyNameWithAnS Katharine]] Hepburn, or "The Great Kate," had quite possibly the longest starring career ever seen in Hollywood. Her first film, ''A Bill of Divorcement'', hit theaters in 1932; her last, ''Love Affair'', was released in 1994. For those who hate math, Hepburn was a big-screen regular for six decades.
