Laura Dern - 'Enlightened'
August 27, 2013
Laura Dern's Amy Jellicoe in HBO's comedic Enlightened is a well-intentioned employee determined to make her industrial company more responsible – and expose it as a corrupt, greedy company polluting the environment.
In addition to landing a nom for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for that HBO show, this versatile film and television star has been nominated four previous times for Emmys, twice in guest roles -- for Ellen's controversial coming-out episode in 1997 and Fallen Angels in 1994.
Her other two noms were for her forays into the HBO projects Recount, as Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris, and Afterburn, in which she plays an Air Force widow.
