The Big C Trivia

The first title of this series was "The C Word". After thinking it over it was decided that the title was too easily confused with another Showtime series, "The L Word" so they changed it to "The Big C". Laura Linney apparently has one of those faces that remind people of someone else. She has stated that fans often recognize her as a celebrity but that they often think she is Helen Hunt or Laura Dern.

Laura has been nominated and won numerous awards. As of 2012 she has been nominated for three Oscars. She has even done better with television awards with three Emmy wins for her roles as a guest star on six episodes of "Frasier" during its final two seasons and for starring roles on two miniseries titled, "Wild Iris" and "John Adams". She was also nominated for a fourth Emmy for her role as Cathy Jamison on "The Big C". Justin Timberlake won that Emmy for his amazing performance as the host of "Saturday Night Live".
