    Coolidge clinched a Golden Globe Award, two Critics’ Choice Television Awards, and two Screen Actors Guild Awards this season for the role. However, her character’s run on the show was not long. Her death in the Season 2 finale surprised many fans, but Coolidge believed it was a necessary plot twist.
