Last year, Ellen Burstyn won her second Emmy. Will she be picking up a third this year to add to her crowded mantle? We will ask her about that when she joins us for a live chat this Wednesday, May 21, at 8:00 a.m. PT/ 11:00 a.m. ET on Gold Derby’s home page.
Burstyn’s 2013 TV Movie/Miniseries Supporting Actress Emmy win was for playing opposite Sigourney Weaver in “Political Animals.” She will be eligible for that same category this time around for playing a ruthless grandmother in Lifetime’s telefilm “Flowers in the Attic.” And her chances are doubled this year as she also has a recurring guest role on the FX comedy “Louie.”
Her first Emmy victory was in 2009 for a guest spot on “Law and Order: Special Victims Unit.” That gave her entry into the exclusive triple crown of acting club, having already won the Best Actress Oscar for the 1974 Martin Scorsese film “Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore” and the Best Actress (Play) Tony for “Same Time, Next Year” in 1975. She just needs a Grammy to complete the EGOT.
