Last weekend, a very pregnant Claire Danes shuffled her way over to the podium at the 2012 Emmys to take home her award for her role in Showtime show “Homeland” for outstanding lead actress in a drama series.
Seeing mom-to-be Claire Danes accept her award, we couldn’t help but be reminded of Mary Louise Parker, who was pregnant with Bill Crudup’s baby when she accepted her 2003 Emmy for Best Supporting Actress for “Angels in America.” Fun Fact: Billy Crudup cheated on Mary Louise Parker when she was 7 months pregnant with HIS child FOR Claire Danes! Whoa full circle! Then Claire left Billy for her current hubby Hugh Dancy!
What other moms-to-be accepted a coveted award with a baby bump?
Of course, Natalie Portman’s 2011 Oscar win came when she was 5 months pregnant with son Aleph for Best Leading Actress for “Black Swan.”
Catherine Zeta-Jones was nearly in labor when she got the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for Chicago. And, she performed “All That Jazz” during the Oscar ceremony as well!
Meryl Streep has racked up a ton of awards in her lifetime, but for her Best Actress Oscar for Sophie’s Choice in 1983 she was totally knocked up!
Rachel Weisz was 6 months pregnant when she picked up Best Supporting Actress at the 2006 Oscars for her role in The Constant Gardener.
