Amy Brenneman


In 2005 Amy Brenneman finished her last season as star, producer and co-creator of the successful drama series "Judging Amy." Her role as Judge Amy Gray brought her two TV Guide Awards, three Golden Globe Award nominations, three Emmy Award nominations and a People's Choice Award nomination, as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series.
Brenneman recently showed up in "Nine Lives," directed by Rodrigo GarcĂ­a, and can be seen next in "88 Minutes" with Al Pacino.
Her other film credits include roles in Michael Mann's "Heat," opposite Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino, the thriller "Daylight" opposite Sylvester Stallone, and Neil LaBute's "Your Friends and Neighbors," alongside Jason Patric and Ben Stiller. In addition she starred in the independent film "Nevada" with Gabrielle Anwar, and in "The Suburbans" co-starring Ben Stiller and Robert Loggia. She most recently appeared in Showtime's "Things You Can Tell Just by Looking at Her," opposite Glenn Close, Cameron Diaz, Calista Flockhart, Kathy Baker and Holly Hunter, and was also seen in the independent feature "Off the Map," opposite Joan Allen and Sam Elliott.
American viewers first took notice of Brenneman with her Emmy Award-nominated performance in "NYPD Blue" in the role of Janice Licalsi. She continued her role on the hit television series for a year as a recurring regular, which again earned her an Emmy nomination.
At the early age of eleven, after singing in the chorus of "The Music Man," Brenneman's interest in performing began to blossom. An 'A' student throughout her academic life, she enrolled in Harvard University with the intention of graduating with a B.A. in Comparative Religions. During her freshman year, she teamed up with a group of fellow actors to form the Cornerstone Theater Company. This unique company customized theater classics such as "Romeo and Juliet" and "Our Town," taking them to the back roads of America and integrating local townspeople with professional actors.
Brenneman's college experience also included a semester abroad in Nepal, where she studied sacred dances with an indigenous priest. In doing so she became one of only two or three westerners to learn the dances.
Upon completion of her studies at Harvard, Brenneman continued her work with Cornerstone and, in 1990, moved to New York. She performed in "The Learned Ladies," opposite Jean Stapleton at the CSC Repertory, Mac Wellman's "Sincerity Forever" at the BACA Downtown, and "The Video Store Owner's Significant Other."
