Amazing actor and world diplomat, he was first black male to win an Academy award, and one of the last golden-age Oscar winners who was still alive.
Also, in addition to the people I mentioned last week, dying within the course of one week, the last week of the year, director Peter Bogdanovich died yesterday, what the ???
All right, so now I'm mad - me and the angel of death need to have a little chat, because he/she is taking our best, all at once!
Rest in peace, Sidney - and thank you :(
