List Rules Vote up the best television shows and films starring Felicity Huffman.

After making her acting debut on stage in a David Mamet play in 1982, Felicity Huffman found her way to the screen in the David Mamet film Things Change in 1988, but it wasn't until joining Sports Night in 1998 that Huffman's career in film and television really took off. Although she hasn't had starring roles in many movies and tends to be part of ensemble shows when Huffman does get front and center she wins nominations and awards (though she's never won an Oscar).

Huffman received dozens of nominations for her work on Sports Night, American Crime, and Desperate Housewives, even winning the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for Desperate Housewives in 2005. As Sabrina 'Bree' Osbourne in Transamerica Huffman gained critical praise and a Golden Globe Award, Independent Spirit Award, National Board of Review, and an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress.

Vote up the best Felicity Huffman movies and shows and vote down those that aren't the best moments in her filmography.
