EMMYS Q&A: Holly Hunter

By | Friday June 21, 2013 @ 3:09pm PDT

Ray Richmond contributes to Deadline’s TV and awards coverage.

By her own admission, Holly Hunter has never been a traditional star. For one thing, she never tried to cash in on her fame and cache’ by forming her own production company and becoming a creator. That was true even after she earned her first of five Oscar nominations for Broadcast News in 1988, or after winning one for The Piano in 1994. Hunter has also atypically found comfort in shifting between leading lady and character actress, as well as between film and television. In fact, the same year she shot The Piano (1993), she was starring as the lead in HBO’s The Positively True Adventures Of The Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom. That role earned Hunter her second of two Emmy wins, the first having come in 1989 for her work in the NBC telepic Roe vs. Wade.
