LOS ANGELES (AP) - A spokeswoman for Elizabeth Taylor says the two-time Oscar winner will spend her birthday watching the Academy Awards in a Los Angeles hospital room, where she’s recovering from treatment for congestive heart failure.

Sally Morrison says Taylor will be rooting for “The King’s Speech” to win Hollywood’s highest honor. Taylor turns 79 Sunday.

Morrison says a proper birthday celebration is planned for when the screen legend returns home.

Taylor has been hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center since early this month. She disclosed her heart condition in November 2004.

Taylor won Oscars for “Butterfield 8” in 1960 and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” in 1966.
