“Temple Grandin” Receives 15 Emmy Nominations

Congratulations to everyone who was involved in the creation and production of HBO’s “Temple Grandin,” which received 15 Emmy nominations.

From specialchildren.about.com:

The nominations for the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards were revealed this morning, and HBO’s biopic Temple Grandin cleaned up with 15 nominations, including one for Claire Danes’s portrayal of Grandin, two supporting-actress nods for Julia Ormond as Temple’s mother and Catherine O’Hara as Temple’s aunt, supporting-actor recognition for David Strathairn as a sympathetic teacher, and nominations for writing, directing, and best made-for-TV movie.

What an honor it is for Temple to have her remarkable life story honored in this fashion; we are confident that our friends in the autism community will join us in echoing that sentiment. The movie is currently airing on HBO and HBO On-Demand – check it out and share your thoughts.

    Way to go, Ms. Grandin! And in the words of one of the characters in the movie, “Ms. Grandin, this is a masterpiece!”

    I recently watched “Temple Grandin” on HBO; it was one of the most moving docudramas I’ve seen in a very long time. Claire Danes’ portrayal of an autistic woman was so accurate it was nearly painful. We have a grandson with Asperger syndrome and have some first-hand, real world experience with this. It would have been so easy to go over the top in the portrayal but good judgement and a gentle hand were used. The result was a movie that deserves every award possible.
