Zellweger’s Academy Award® for Cold Mountain was accompanied by a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role, a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture, a BAFTA Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role and a Broadcast Film Critics Award for Best Supporting Actress.

After some television work, Zellweger made her feature debut while still in Texas in Richard Linklater’s seminal coming-of-age film, Dazed and Confused. Other roles quickly followed including Ben Stiller’s Reality Bites, The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and My Boyfriend’s Back.

Zellweger recently starred with Jerry Seinfeld in DreamWorks’ award-winning animated film Bee Movie, with Jim Carrey in Me, Myself & Irene and with Chris Rock and Morgan Freeman in the dark comedy Nurse Betty. She starred with William Hurt and Meryl Streep in the critically acclaimed One True Thing and opposite Robin Wright Penn and Michelle Pfeiffer in White Oleander.

Zellweger won the attention and affection of audiences and critics alike in Cameron Crowe’s Jerry Maguire, opposite Tom Cruise. Several critics groups, including the National Board of Review, named her as Best Breakthrough Performer.

Zellweger starred in Ron Howard’s story of Depression-era boxer Jim Braddock, Cinderella Man, opposite Russell Crowe, and in Peyton Reed’s stylish romantic comedy Down with Love, opposite Ewan McGregor.
