Best Actress in a Genealogical Role

Oscar winner Helen Mirren's next project will be a documentary about her Russian roots.

"I'm hoping to get the full family tree, at long last," she said of her forthcoming visit, which will include her attempting to track down the site of her grandfather's family's estate in western Russia, and the family graveyard, and meet long-lost relatives in Moscow.

The documentary, called The Journey, will fulfill a lifelong ambition for Helen. [Link]
Mirren was tipped off as to her Russian heritage by the name on her birth certificate—Ilyena Lydia Mironova.
