16’s Fifth Annual GeeGee Gold Star Awards 1966

Given for Highest Achievement by Young Stars in the Fields of Motion Pictures, Television and Records

16 raises the curtain on its annual GeeGee Awards for outstanding achievements by young stars in motion pictures, television, records and announces its brand new GOLDEN GALAXY AWARD to the most popular performer of 1966.

As always, the winners of this year’s GeeGee Awards, for extraordinary performances during the past year, were chosen by 16’s readers. They were chosen by you in the ballots and letters numbering in the millions you mailed to us day after day, in which you told us who were your favorite young stars. We tabulated each and every vote, and the stars you see on the next three pages are the stars you voted tops in their field.

To the winners of this year’s GeeGee Awards, 16 speaks for every 16 reader in saying, “Congratulations and all good wishes for a long and successful career.”
