Claire Danes & Temple Grandin Win Golden Globe, Share an Emotional Moment
Clare Danes picked up a Golden Globe tonight for her portrayal of the famous professor, animal scientist, author, and woman with autism, Temple Grandin.
The HBO Movie Temple Grandin, which was passed over for “best mini-series or TV movie,”(although it won an Oscar for best TV movie) follows the life of the most well-known person with autism. Grandin, a prolific writer and researcher, is known for her intuitive work with animals and as a spokesperson and advocate for people on the autism spectrum.
She’s also known for encouraging parents to help children with autism to “get out there” and have high expectations for achieving and getting the most out of life, as she’s done.
Anyone going to attend the Future Horizons Conference in Dixon, IL on July 23,2010? This is actually a 2-day conference, but I will only be attending Friday because that is the day both Temple Grandin AND Tony Attwood are both presenting! Myself and the other co-facilitator of our bi-monthly (every other month, not twice a month) women's group will be attending that day, driving in the night before.
FH has several conferences around the US. I will be at this one, and I'd like to know if anyone else from this forum will be there also?
Temple Grandin is excited about the upcoming HBO Movie portraying her personal journey through various stages of her life. Hollywood actress Claire Danes gives what Temple describes as an accurate performance based upon research the actress did from information provided to her by Temple personally.
