  • Helen Hunt is the only person, male or female, known to have danced with Gillian Anderson on the night of the 2001 Oscars. The latter wore her infamous backless dress, complete with thong that night. The two women were strongly hinted to be in a relationship when Ted Casablanca did an ongoing story on a powerful, and shocking, lesbian couple in 2000. Update
  • Only the second actress to win a Golden Globe, an Oscar, and an Emmy in the same calendar year. The first was Liza Minnelli in 1973.
