What Claire Danes had to say to the media after receiving the Emmy was that,

“We worked very hard to tell a coherent, cogent story that charted Temple’s trajectory and growth…It was so special that her mother and she were here tonight.”

“Temple Grandin” was also favored with the Best Made TV Movie Award. The movie set out with the tagline “What made her different made her exceptional” and indeed is a true work of excellence. Based in and around the life of an autistic woman Temple Grandin, the movie has lots to offer to the society. Temple Grandin overlooked her miseries to devote herself to the developments in animal husbandry. Through her journey she was awarded by PETA. She ended up being a professor at Colorado State University setting trends for all those who followed her trails.
