Blythe Danner won two Emmy awards for her role on Showtime’s “Huff” and was nominated twice for roles on “Will & Grace” and in Joyce Carol Oates’ “We Were the Mulvaneys.” She received a Golden Globe nomination for Anne Tyler’s Back When We Were Grownups, and her list of career accomplishments continues with a Tony Award for her Broadway debut in Butterflies Are Free and nominations for roles in Harold Pinter’s Betrayal, Tennessee Williams’ Streetcar Named Desire and Stephen Sondheim’s musical Follies. She most recently appeared on Broadway in the musical Nice Work If You Can Get It, and Off-Broadway in The Commons of Pensacola. Her film roles include Woody Allen’s Alice, The Great Santini, the Meet the Parents trilogy, What’s Your Number? and Sylvia, a film in which she appeared with her daughter, actress Gwyneth Paltrow. Most recently Danner has appeared in The Lucky One and Hello I Must Be Going, and she will next be seen in the films I’ll See You In My Dreams and Tumbledown. Danner takes action to support causes that are important to her.
