Born Mary Elizabeth Spacek, Sissy Spacek began her career as a model before turning to acting in the early 1970s. It wasn't long before she was cast in what would be her breakout role: Carrie White in 1976's Carrie. The role earned her her first of six Oscar nominations. She went on to win the Academy Award for Best Actress in 1980 for her portrayal of Loretta Lynn in Coal Miner's Daughter. She also won the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress for the same part, and was nominated for a Grammy for Best Female Country Vocal Performance. She is one of only 14 actresses to win the Best Actress Academy Award and the Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy Golden Globe Award for the same performance.

In 2011, Spacek received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. That same year, she starred in the film The Help, and, along with the rest of the cast, received the Screen Actor's Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

 

Spacek has been married to Jack Fisk since 1974. The couple have two daughters and live on a 300 acre farm near Charlottesville, Virginia.
