** One reporter describes waiting backstage to interview her after a performance. She came into the room and asked the reporter to wait a moment, as she grabbed the phone. He heard her say "give me the White House". After a beat, she then said "Hello, Mr President, this is Judy Garland. Happy birthday" and then she sang "Over The Rainbow" right there in the room.

* AwardSnub: In 1954, JudyGarland, resting and recuperating in a hospital from giving birth to her son, Joey Luft, would watch as Creator/GraceKelly would win for ''The Country Girl'' over Garland's seemingly surefire win for her comeback, ''A Star Is Born'', a film heavily edited from 182 to 154 minutes, eliminated crucial dramatic scenes and two musical numbers. She had a camera crew positioned to film her at her hospital bed to broadcast an acceptance speech. Legend has it that what the announcement was made, the crew coldly left Garland, packed up and left. [[MarxBrothers Groucho Marx]] would call the snub "the greatest robbery since the Brinks." Garland [[BreakTheCutie never fully recovered]] from that loss.

* LGBTFanbase: She has a rather large gay following. On top of that, a passion for JudyGarland is often used as a [[HollywoodStyle Hollywood and television shorthand]] to indicate that a character is flamboyantly gay. Her daughter Liza, as well.

** IronWoobie /BerserkButton: One of her pet peeves, [[WordOfGod at least according to her daughters in a recent cable documentary]], was always hearing about being known as a "tragic figure"; that while she did have many tragic things happen to her, she leaned towards having a more optimistic and upbeat (and humorous) outlook on life as much as possible, and shielded her children from the more tragic moments in her life as best as she could.
