Ellen Burstyn claims that she was utterly bewildered when she was informed early this year that she had been nominated for an Emmy for a cameo role that lasted 14 seconds. "When they told me I was nominated for that I went, 'What, are you kidding?'" Burstyn said in an interview with A.P. Radio. Nevertheless, she added, "I thought it was fabulous. ... My next ambition is to get nominated for seven seconds, and, ultimately, I want to be nominated for a picture in which I don't even appear."
