‘Will & Grace’ Actress Debra Messing Just Received a Legendary Hollywood Award
Last Friday, Debra Messing, the actress who plays interior designer Grace Adler on the beloved (and very gay) TV sitcom Will & Grace, got a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, the 1.3 mile stretch of California sidewalk bearing the names of legendary celebrities of TV, radio, stage and film. The Debra Messing star on the Walk of Fame was specifically for her television work.
The Debra Messing star is for TV, but she has also starred in several films
Although she’s best known for her role of Grace (a role she started in 1998), Messing has been acting since 1994 and has also appeared in films such as A Walk in the Clouds, Along Came Polly and The Women.
She has also been nominated for seven Screen Actors Guild awards, six Golden Globes and five Emmys. She won a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series in 2001 and a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series in 2003. Both awards were for her Will & Grace role.
