Weaver is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or a Movie at the 61st Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Mary Griffith on Prayers for Bobby.
I’m in shock. It really does mean so much because I think Mary Griffith’s story is so wrenching, and the courage she has to share this story with all of us so other families don’t make this mistake, to me that’s the way that’s carried this tiny movie along. Our producers who worked for 13 years to get this made, they are jumping up and down. So it’s wonderful for us. … We’re all in shock.
