I am a winner!

I am happy to say that I won my first award as a stuntwoman...I won a SAG Award! The award show was last weekend and I haven't had a chance to tell you guys (due to my surgery). I along with 15 or so other won a SAG award for Outstanding Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Television Series for Heroes. I double Ali Larter as well as a few guest stars that have come on the show. I was nominated last year for Lost but we didn't win.

Last year was the first year that stunts were acknowledge at the SAG Awards (SAG stands for Screen Actors Guild which is the union all stunt people and actors are a part of). We are the only winners not announced at the televised show. Sometimes I think Hollywood doesn't want to ruin the illusion that there are stunt people. Some people get up set by that and others are ok with being behind the scenes.

I am just happy to have won!
