Ellen Burstyn's nomination for a Best Supporting Actress Emmy Award is being ridiculed by the US media, because the Oscar winner appears in MRS HARRIS for a mere 15 seconds. HBO drama Mrs Harris stars SIR Ben Kingsley as DR HERMAN TARNOWER - the man who invented the Scarsdale diet - and Annette Bening as JEAN HARRIS, the woman who murdered him. Burstyn appears in a flashback sequence, and her character is listed on the Internet Movie Database as 'Ex-Lover Number Three'. The New York Post writes the 73-year-old's performance "required her to do nothing more than sit in a chair and speak three sentences of dialogue in a vaguely foreign accent". The newspaper claims Burstyn's nomination in the Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Miniseries Or A Movie category is indicative of the "deeply flawed process" leading to the nominations. Winners will be announced in Los Angeles on 27 August (06).
