Sarah Jessica Parker, Divorce – Nominee, Best Performance by an Actress in a TV Series – Musical or Comedy
In a departure far away from Carrie Bradshaw, Parker plays frumpy suburban housewife Frances Dufresne, who finds her decision to divorce her husband of more than ten years, leads to a very bumpy road strewn with heartbreak, vengeance and humor. Parker tells us what she thinks is the line in the show that best describes her character. “Frances says, sometimes I feel happy and I come home and I see your car in the driveway and my heart sinks.” Apparently the sentiment resonates with viewers enough that HBO has renewed the show for a second season. And Parker has won her ninth Golden Globe nomination (with four previous wins).
