Hairspray (2007)

Michelle Pfeiffer as "Velma Von Tussle"

In 1960s Baltimore, dance-loving teen Tracy Turnblad (Nikki Blonsky) auditions for a spot on "The Corny Collins Show" and wins. She becomes an overnight celebrity, a trendsetter in dance, fun and fashion. Perhaps her new status as a teen sensation is enough to topple Corny's reigning dance queen and bring racial integration to the show.

Screen Actors Guild Awards (2007) Nominated Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture
