CELEBRITY

MELANIE GRIFFITH (Nicole Oliver) received an Academy Award nomination and won a Golden Globe award for her memorable role as Tess McGill in Mike Nichol's smash hit "Working Girl."

Griffith has just completed filming "Crazy in Alabama" starring opposite Lukas Black ("Sling Blade"), David Morse and Cathy Moriarty for TnStar Pictures. In the film, Griffith stars as an eccentric star-struck Southern housewife wanted on a murder charge.

Recently, she earned praise for her work opposite Paul Newman in Robert Benton's "Nobody's Fool" and in Lee Tamahori's "Mulholland Falls," opposite Nick Nolte. She portrayed Charlotte Haze in Adrian Lyne's controversial film "Lolita," also starring Jeremy Irons and Dominique Swain, and will soon be seen in Larry Clark's "Another Day in Paradise" opposite James Woods.

One of today's most sought-after and versatile actresses, Griffith has collaborated with some of the film industry's most important directors. Her career began at the age of seventeen in Arthur Penn's "Night Moves." She then appeared in the murder mystery "The Drowning Pool" starring Paul Newman; gained attention as a starlet who holds the missing pieces to the murder puzzle in Brian De Palma's "Body Double;" and then co-starred in Jonathan Demme's off-beat comedy-drama "Something Wild.."

She went on to star in Mike Figgis' stylist film noir "Stormy Monday" with Tommy Lee Jones and Sting; Robert Redford's "The Milagro Beanfield War" and John Schlesinger's psychological thriller "Pacific Heights," opposite Michael Keaton and Mathew Modine. Returning to work with director Brian De Palma, she starred with Tom Hanks and Bruce Willis in "The Bonfire of the Vanities" before joining Michael Douglas and Liam Neeson in the World War II espionage romance "Shining Through."

After starring in "Paradise" with Don Johnson, Griffith followed with Sidney Lumet's police drama "A Stranger Among Us" and a remake of Garson Kanin's "Born Yesterday." Her most recent film credits include Richard Benjamin's charming comedy "Milk Money," opposite Ed Harris; a cameo in "Now and Then" and Fernando Trueba's "Two Much" starring Antonio Banderas and Daryl Hannah.

On television, Griffith recently starred in the mini-series "Buffalo Girls," which earned her a Golden Globe nomination; and starred with James Woods in the HBO film "Women and Men: Hills Like White Elephants."
