Elizabeth Taylor spends 79th birthday in hospital

LOS ANGELES - Two-time Oscar winner

Elizabeth Taylor is cheering for "The King's Speech" to win the
Academy Award for best film on Sunday, her 79th birthday, from
a hospital where she remains in treatment for heart problems.

A representative for Taylor said the actress continues

resting at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where she
was taken over two weeks ago suffering symptoms of congestive
heart failure -- an ongoing problem for the Hollywood legend.

"Elizabeth Taylor will spend a quiet birthday this year as

she continues to rest and recover at Cedars-Sinai," her
spokeswoman said in a statement on Sunday. "She plans to watch
the Academy Awards with family and close friends and will be
rooting for 'The King's Speech.' A proper birthday celebration
will be planned for when she returns home."
