Ullman burst on the U.S. TV scene in 1987 with the broadcast series "The Tracey Ullman Show," which brought her two Emmys(R), and also gave birth to "The Simpsons." She also won Emmys(R) for guest appearances on "Ally McBeal" and "Love & War." Ullman's film credits include "Into the Woods," Tim Burton's "Corpse Bride," John Waters' "A Dirty Shame," Woody Allen's "Small Time Crooks" and "Bullets Over Broadway," "Panic," Robert Altman's "Ready to Wear," Mel Brooks' "Robin Hood: Men in Tights," "I Love You to Death," "I'll Do Anything," "Household Saints" and "Plenty."
