biography of Burstyn, Ellen

Edna Rae Gillooly
7 December 1932, Detroit, Michigan, USA
5' 7"
Born in Detroit, Ellen Burstyn worked a number of jobs before she became an actress. At 14, she was a short-order cook at a lunch counter. After graduating from Detroit's Cass Technical High School, she went to Texas to model and then to New York as a showgirl on _"The Jackie Gleason Show" (1952)_ (qv). From there, it was to Montreal as a nightclub dancer and then Broadway with her debut in "Fair Game (1957)". By 1963, she appeared on the TV series _"The Doctors" (1963)_ (qv), but she gained notice for her role in _Goodbye Charlie (1964)_ (qv). Ellen then took time off to study acting with 'Lee Strasberg' (qv) at the Actors Studio. Her big break came when she was cast as the female lead in _The Last Picture Show (1971)_ (qv). For this role, she received nominations for the Golden Globe and Academy Award. Next, she co-starred with 'Jack Nicholson (I)' (qv) in _The King of Marvin Gardens (1972)_ (qv), giving a chilling performance. Then came _The Exorcist (1973)_ (qv). Ellen was again nominated for the Golden Globe and Academy Award. In 1974, she starred in _Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974)_ (qv), playing a waitress, which is a job that she well knows. For this performance, she won the Oscar as Best Actress as well as the British award for the same category. For the Golden Globe, she was nominated but lost to 'Marsha Mason (I)' (qv). The same year, Ellen made history by winning a Tony Award for the Broadway play "Same Time, Next Year". She won praise and award nominations for the movie version of _Same Time, Next Year (1978)_ (qv) and _Resurrection (1980)_ (qv). "Resurrection" was a another great film in which she played a woman with the power to heal. Even with all these successful movies and all the awards, Ellen found that she could barely get a job in the 80s. A succession of TV movies resulting in two Emmy nominations kept Ellen going as did the series _"The Ellen Burstyn Show" (1986)_ (qv). The TV movies continued through the 90s. Also in the 90s, Ellen was cast in the supporting role in such movies as _The Cemetery Club (1993)_ (qv), _How to Make an American Quilt (1995)_ (qv), _The Baby-Sitters Club (1995)_ (qv) and _The Spitfire Grill (1996)_ (qv). In addition to her acting, Burstyn was the first woman president of Actor's Equity, the actors' union, from 1982 to 1985.

-   'William Alexander' (1950 - September 1957) (divorced)

-   'Neil Nephew' (qv) (1964 - April 1972) (divorced)


-   Her smile

-   Her soft, frail voice


-   Received a permanent spinal injury while filming _The Exorcist (1973)_ (qv). In the sequence where she is thrown away from her possessed daughter, a harness jerked her hard away from the bed. She fell on her coccyx and screamed in pain, which was filmed for the movie.

-   She wrote to the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences to protest 'Liv Ullmann' (qv)'s elimination from Oscar contention in 1974 for her performance in _"Scener ur ett äktenskap" (1973)_ (qv) (aka "Scenes from a Marriage"). AMPAS used a rule under which TV presentations must have appeared in movie theaters in the same year, to prevent Ullmann from being nominated. The result is that Burstyn won the Oscar for her performance in _Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974)_ (qv).

-   Burstyn was not able to attend the 1975 Academy Awards Ceremony, thus couldn't accept her Best Actress Oscar for _Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974)_ (qv). 'Martin Scorsese' (qv), the film's director, accepted her Oscar on her behalf.

-   Said in the book "On Women Turning 50" that she did not attend the 1975 Academy Awards, where she won the Best Actress award for _Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974)_ (qv), because she was certain she would win and could not handle the pressure and attention.

Burstyn was Emmy-nominated for the lead role as 'Jean Harris' (qv) in the 1981 TV-movie, _The People vs. Jean Harris (1981) (TV)_ (qv) and, in 2006, she was nominated as a supporting character (as an ex-lover of Jean Harris's lover) in the cable-movie based on the Harris case in _Mrs. Harris (2005) (TV)_ (qv). Burstyn is perhaps the first actress to be nominated for a performance that is less than 1-minute long (in fact, it is approximately 15 seconds). She vied for the Emmy with fellow "Mrs. Harris" co-star and Oscar-winner 'Cloris Leachman' (qv). Neither won.

-   Made a special Academy Awards appearance in 1998, at the _The 70th Annual Academy Awards (1998) (TV)_ (qv), and participated in the Oscar Winners Tribute sequence along with other Academy Award winners.
