Sandra Oh Nominated For The PRISM Awards

The PRISM Awards is an award that honors actors, movies, music, media and television’s top shows that accurately depict and bring attention to substance abuse and mental health issues, including prevention, treatment and recovery.

The nominees for this year's PRISM Awards were announced a few days ago and Sandra Oh has been nominated in the category for Best Female Performance in a Drama Series Multi-Episode Storyline with these ladies: Edie Falco (Nurse Jackie), Monica Potter (Parenthood), Katey Sagal (Sons of Anarchy) and KaDee Strickland (Private Practice).

Also nominated is Sandra's co-star Kevin McKidd for Best Performance In A Drama Series - who incidentally thanked Sandra Oh in his speech when he won last year - as well as Grey's Anatomy episodes With You I’m Born Again/Shock to the System/Superfreak in the category for Outstanding Drama Series Multi-Episode Storyline – Mental Health.

A word from Brian Dyak, EIC President, CEO and Co-Founder:

“We are proud of our industry and the quality of the over 400 PRISM Awards submissions this year. Story telling about substance abuse and mental health concerns such as PTSD and suicide prevention is an important asset to public awareness about these issues. This year’s nominees truly represent powerful stories that can make a difference.”

The ceremony will be held on April 28, 2011 at the Beverly Hills Hotel.

Here is an amazing scene with Sandra Oh and Ellen Pompeo in one of the nominated episodes:

One of my favourite Cristina-Meredith moments ever! Sandra Oh was great portraying traumatized Cristina and she deserves recognition for it. I don't know the actresses and the shows competing with her, with the exception of PP. I'm not a great fan of PP's in general, and of Charlotte's in particular, but I must say KaDee Strickland was also very believable as a rape victim and did a really good job. It's going to be tough, I'm afraid...

White Irish Drinkers was a fabulous film! I saw it at the Woodstock festival and am not surprised it is nominated for a Prism Award this year. I am a New Yorker and relate to this film on many levels. I think its going to do well.
