(Photo by Matt Sayles/Invision/AP) LOS ANGELES (AP) — At 78-years-old Diahann Carroll keeps a sense of humor. “I don’t think I realize what the passage of time really means until people talk about things that I did in the ’50s and I wonder ‘Who the hell are they talking about?,’” the actress, singer and Golden Globe-winner said while being honored at a House of Flowers dinner last Saturday evening. Beverly Johnson, Angela Bassett, Regina King and Anika Noni Rose were in attendance to applaud Carroll and fellow honoree Cheryl Boone Isaacs, the first African American president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
