  • Flamboyant comedian, actress, author and screenwriter Fannie Flagg received an Oscar nomination for her first script Fried Green Tomatoes (1991) which was based on her book Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe (published in 1987). She started out as an actress and comedian, frequently writing her own material. Her first big break came after spending six years trying to win the Miss Alabama contest. From there she worked as a stand-up comedian, during the 1960s writing for Candid Camera and frequently appearing with host Alan Funt. During the early to mid '70s, Flagg made regular and guest appearances on TV sitcoms such as The New Dick Van Dyke Show, and, in 1970, she made her feature-film debut in Five Easy Pieces. She went on to play supporting roles in a few more films during the 1970s, including Rabbit Test and Grease (both 1978). In 1981, Flagg debuted as an author with Coming Attractions.
