Twin Peaks (1990)

Piper Laurie as "Catherine Martell"

A crime drama mixed with healthy doses of the surreal, this series is about FBI Agent Dale Cooper, who travels to the small logging town of Twin Peaks to solve the murder of seemingly innocent high schooler Laura Palmer. Almost nothing is as it seems, however, and the show's sometimes eerie visuals, oddball characters and wild dream sequences drive the point home.

Golden Globe (1991) Won Best Performance by An Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Miniseries or Motion Picture Made for Television
