Felicity Huffman is an American actor. She is currently the most popular recipient of several accolades, including a Golden Globe Award, a Satellite Award, four Screen Actors Guild Awards, an Academy Award, and is nominated for an Oscar as well. She has been listed on the roster of the 2021 Rising Stars of the Year. Additionally, she was featured in a number of other award-winning films including The Pursuit of Happyness, Dinner For One, and The Perfect Score. She currently has two films currently in development.
In her first major film role, Felicity received an award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Leading Role from the 1999 Satellite Awards. Felicity’s other notable roles include appearing in the Harry Potter Films, promoting the movie Demention Gate, playing the title role in the acclaimed independent film The Squid’s Children, and appearing in the finale of the television series ER. In addition to her acting career, Felicity also contributed articles to several different periodicals, including Vanity Fair, GQ, TV Guide, and InStyle. Felicity has also been nominated a number of times for best celebrity or supporting actor awards, including an extra special honor for her work on the television show ER.
Felicity has definitely had her share of ups and downs, though her career in Hollywood seems to be at a high point. It is interesting to note that according to Rene Lacape, co-writer of the M.A.S.H. book, Felicity is “just like every other blond female in movies – smart, attractive, a little bit jealous of her friends’ wealth, but with an incredible ability to take any situation that comes her way and make it work”. Indeed, it is pretty clear that Felicity has been able to handle everything that comes her way throughout her short career in Hollywood.
Despite her many achievements in Hollywood, one of the most important roles that Felicity has played over the years is that of a cheating wife, though Felicity managed to keep her marital vows to save her marriage. Though Felicity Huffman broke almost every rule of modern marriage, in the end she did save her marriage, though not before taking a much needed vacation. Though Felicity did receive an award for her work on the television show ER, the Golden Globe Award for Outstanding Actress in a Television Series was actually awarded to Broad City’s Sara Koenigs. For some reason, Rene Lacape felt that Felicity deserved the award, but when it comes to Golden Globe Awards or the Emmys, it simply doesn’t matter. As long as the actor or actress was nominated, then they were happy.
However, Felicity’s career in Hollywood has also had its share of controversies, most notably the fact that in 2021 she was arrested and later convicted for misdemeanor drug possession. Though Felicity’s crime brought an end to her acting career, it didn’t end the career of her husband, ube safe Joseph Merikis, who was found dead in their bathtub at home. After being convicted of this crime, Felicity began to publicly support her husband’s claim that he died in his bathtub. This caused a standoff between her mother, Mary. Though Felicity finally decided to move on from this issue, it still colored her views on many things including college admissions.
Felicity’s support of her stepmother is what eventually pushed her into trouble with the police and even got her in trouble with CNN producer JoeNN. Though Felicity took responsibility for her actions and immediately asked to speak with CNN producer JosephNN to give her statement, it didn’t go well. She was asked many questions about her relationship with her stepfather, which only added to her woes. It was during this time that she learned about the infamous college admissions scam, and although she had thought that her story would remain private, it was not. The scandal ultimately cost Felicity her modeling career.
