Paltrow's Mum Makes Emmy Awards History

GWYNETH PALTROW's mum BLYTHE DANNER made Emmy Awards history last week (14JUL05) by becoming the first star to be nominated for three acting performances in one year.

Other stars have scored three, even four, bids at once, but in scattered categories like directing, writing and producing, in addition to acting.

But Danner is nominated as Best Guest Actress in a Comedy Series (WILL + GRACE), Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series (HUFF) and Best Actress in a Made-For-TV Movie (BACK WHEN WE WERE GROWNUPS).

TOM O'NEIL, host of award-predictions website GoldDerby.com, fancies Danner's chances in the latter category: "Blythe has a real shot at winning the race for Best Actress in a Made-for-TV Movie as a harried party planner who takes a careful examination of the quality of her life in Back When We Were Grownups. That'll be a close contest."

She's up against S EPATHA MERKERSON in LACKAWANNA BLUES, HALLE BERRY in THEIR EYES WERE WATCHING GOD and CYNTHIA NIXON as ELEANOR ROOSEVELT in WARM SPRINGS.

Meanwhile, 79-year-old CLORIS LEACHMAN will be looking to pull ahead of the pack on EMMY night (18SEP05) - she currently holds the record for the most EMMY wins (eight) and she's nominated twice this year (05).
