Ellen Burstyn’s ‘Political Animals’ Role Was Unheralded at First
Posted at 6:56 p.m. on Sept. 23, 2013
Congrats to Ellen Burstyn, who won an Emmy award on Sunday night for her role as Margaret Barrish in the mini-series “Political Animals.”
Too bad the publicity folks at USA Network didn’t think enough of her when they were flogging the show to even put her visage on their “Political Animals” animal crackers PR swag that went out to untold hacks last year.
From left to right on the munchie box were James Wolk, Sebastian Stan, Sigourney Weaver, Carla Gugino and Ciaran Hinds. Burstyn’s Emmy was the only one the show earned.
