Laura Linney (The Savages) 

In the 15 years since Emmy® award winner Laura Linney made a name for herself in film, she has built a résumé that includes Love Actually, The Squid and the Whale and The Nanny Diaries. Laura has twice been nominated for Academy Awards®, first for her performance as a single mother in You Can Count on Me and then for her portrayal of Clara McMillen, the wife of famed sex researcher Alfred Kinsey in Kinsey.

Her role in The Savages marks Laura's third Oscar nomination. In the film, she plays Wendy Savage, a woman who drifts increasingly far from her family until she and her brother are forced to move home to care for their aging father.
