Temple Grandlin Movie Wins Best Picture Award Enroute to Five Emmys Sunday Night

Mon, 30 Aug 2010 9:22:24 CDT

Temple Grandlin Movie Wins Best Picture Award Enroute to Five Emmys Sunday Night HBO's biopic "Temple Grandin" swept the Emmys last night, capturing some of the top awards including Best Picture, Best Actress for Clare Danes who portrayed Grandin, Best Supporting Actress for Julia Ormond who portrayed Grandin's mother, Best Supporting Actor for David Strathairn who portrayed Grandin's favorite teacher and Best Director for Mick Jackson.

Danes held the award up and spoke to Grandin directly saying "This is in service of your work."

When the movie's crew accepted the award for Best Picture, they brought Grandin to the stage. When the movie's producer said Temple was their hero, she threw her arms around her in a spontaneous embrace and then she asked her mother to rise to her feet and be acknowledged with applause.

While the film was predicted to capture many awards, it fared better than many critics predicted.

Earlier this year, we talked with Temple Grandlin about several subjects- among them some of the things she has learned in the process of getting involved with this movie project. Click here to read more of our encounter with Grandlin and here our conversation with her back in May of this year.
