During the Sunday night broadcast of the Emmy’s, the name “Temple Grandin” became an echo in the auditorium.
The biography of the autistic woman’s life starring Clair Danes was nominated for seven awards and won five.
So, who is Temple Grandin?
Grandin, who was diagnosed with autism at the age of two, has gone on to soar. She holds multiple degrees, is a professor and Colorado State University in Fort Collins and is considered one of the top authorities in the humane treatment of livestock. If you haven’t yet seen the HBO movie on her life, you are missing out.
