More: You won an Academy Award for your role in Mighty Aphrodite. Do you feel the pressure to be picky and always take memorable roles because you carry the title of Oscar winner?
MS: No, I have never felt that everything had to be dictated by that. Although I am very appreciative for having won the award, I always followed what my heart told me to do over the years.

More: Tammy, you won an Emmy and have been nominated for a Tony. Do you feel the pressure to be picky and always take memorable roles because you carry the title of award winner?
TB: I don’t care what anyone thinks about my acting career or what anyone says about a role I choose to play. I need to love the character. I need to know I can be honest with it and I know I will do a good job. I will say, after you receive an accolade, you do hope to find a role that will get you back into that atmosphere and respected for your work.
