Byrne receives a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama at the 62nd Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Ellen Parsons on Damages.
I’m very flattered the Academy has recognized my performance. Being a part of Damages has been such a wonderful gift. I’m grateful to Glenn, Tate, KZK, FX, Sony, the writers and all my fellow cast mates for their support. I have loved every minute of playing Ellen Parsons and there’s no one else I’d rather spar with than the incomparable Glenn Close.
