Whoopsie – Sigourney Weaver’s bio for her Broadway play, Vanya and Sonia, says she won the Academy Award for Aliens! Which will most certainly come as a surprise to Marlee Matlin, who won that year for “Children of a Lesser God.’
“The Broadway community is all a buzz about the mistake in her bio,” one theatrical agent tells NBNROB. “Unfortunately, the error won’t be fixed for a while. Playbill’s printing schedule is like fixing a mistake on a website. But it is funny to think of all things, she won an Oscar for that!”
Sigourney has in fact been nominated for an Academy Award three times. In 1989 she was nominated for Best Actress in a Leading Role for Gorillas in the Mist. The same year she was nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for for Working Girl.
In 1987 she was NOMINATED for Best Actress in a Leading Role for Aliens.
A friend of the actress tells NBNROB, “She knows she did not win the Oscar and regrets the mistake in Playbill, that will be fixed.”
