Sisters

Show Summary

Sisters introduced us to a group of sisters, Alex (Swoosie Kurtz), Georgie (Patricia Kalember), Teddy (Sela Ward), Frankie (Julianne Phillips) and Charley (Jo Anderson & Sheila Kelley). They dealt with life, love, children, death, divorce, marriage and virtually everything else. All through they were held together by their mother, Bea (Elizabeth Hoffman).

The show became a hit with viewers. In the first episode we saw Teddy write the word 'Slut' on her sister Frankie's car, and in the last episode we saw the sisters deal with the death of their mother. The audience got to know and love these sisters...

During it's run, Sisters earned one Emmy, which went to Sela Ward in 1994. In total, it received 5 Emmy nominations. Sisters was nominated for two Golden Globes during its six season run: in 1993 (for Best Series-Drama) and in 1994 (for Best Drama Actress-Sela Ward). Kurtz was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award in 1995 and Ward was nominated in 1996.
