      Judy Davis found her passion for acting as she grew up in Australia and attended the National Institute of Dramatic Art. Graduating the Sydney school in 1977, she started to work in Australian cinema, earning plaudits for her role in "My Brilliant Career" (1979), which netted her a BAFTA Award. Heralded as a promising young actress in her home country, Davis began her international march to stardom with her Emmy-nominated turn in "A Woman Named Golda" (1982). Shortly after, she garnered even more international prestige as her performance in David Lean's "A Passage to India" (1984) was nominated for Best Actress at the Academy Awards. For the rest of 1980s, she mostly worked in Australia before working with auteurs in the early '90s. She drew critical acclaim for her work in the Coen Brothers' "Barton Fink" (1991), David Cronenberg's "Naked Lunch" (1991), and Woody Allen's "Husbands and Wives" (1992), including another Oscar nomination for her work in the latter. Outside of film, Davis was also prolific on television, drawing Golden Globe and Emmy attention for her work in a variety of made-for-TV movies and mini-series, including "Serving in Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story" (1995), "Dash and Lilly" (1999), and perhaps most famously, "Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows" (2001), in which she played the legendary actress. By the early 2000s, Davis' pace slowed down, but she still appeared in TV mini-series such as "The Reagans" (Showtime 2003) and even popped up in films such as "The Break-Up" (2006) and "Marie Antoinette" (2006). She netted Emmy notoriety for "The Starter Wife" (USA 2007) and "Feud: Bette and Joan" (FX 2017).
