‘Temple Grandin’ Receives Multiple Awards

HBO premiered an original film based on the inspirational, true story of Temple Grandin, starring Claire Danes, on Feb. 6, 2010. The film was critically acclaimed, and received seven Emmy awards, including Outstanding Made for Television Movie and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Miniseries or Movie. On Jan. 16, 2011, it received another honor — this time from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association — as Claire Danes received a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-series or Motion Picture Made for Television.

Temple Grandin paints a picture of a young woman’s perseverance and determination while struggling with the isolating challenges of autism. Grandin became a successful doctor in animal science through her unique connection to animals and is now a world-renowned consultant in the field. She is widely recognized within the animal welfare and livestock-handling industries as a pioneer in the ethical treatment of animals.

In producing the film, HBO also engaged the services of American Humane’s Film & Television Unit, which is the exclusive monitoring and granting agency to award the coveted “No Animals Were Harmed”® end-credit disclaimer. The production followed American Humane’s strict Guidelines for the Safe Use of Animals in Filmed Media, had an American Humane Certified Animal Safety Representative™ on set to ensure animal safety and welfare, and earned the famous assurance to viewers that “no animals were harmed” in the making of the movie.
