Her next nomination came when she starred in Lorenzo's Oil, followed by a nomination for her performance in The Client, and she won the Academy Award for her outstanding performance in Dead Man Walking. Other films include Stepmom, The Lovely Bones, Enchanted, Elizabethtown, Shall We Dance?, The Banger Sisters, White Palace, Bob Roberts and Safe Passage. On television, Sarandon received an Emmy nomination for her role in Bernard and Doris and also received an Emmy nomination for her work in Barry Levinson's You Don't Know Jack with Al Pacino.
