This week, Stephen and Andrew take a look at Holly Hunter’s long and varied career. Hunter got her big break in 1987 in the Coen Brothers’ Raising Arizona and received her first Best Actress nod at the Oscars for Broadcast News the same year. Hunter channeled this success into an eventual Best Actress win for The Piano as well as a Best Supporting Actress nomination for The Firm. Known for her distinctive Southern accent and for being one of the best criers in the business, Hunter has worked consistently in TV and film racking up knockout performances in the likes of David Cronenberg’s Crash, another turn with the Coens in O Brother, Where Art Thou? and Brad Bird’s The Incredibles and its 2018 sequel. On TV she is best known for the series Saving Grace, a six-episode guest spot on Succession and NBC comedy Mr Mayor.
