Jerry Seinfeld has enjoyed critical acclaim and vast success as a stand-up comedian, television actor, best-selling author and advertising pitchman. His signature remains the landmark, multi-award-winning television series that bears his name, for which he served as creator, producer and star.
For Jason Alexander, nine seasons as hapless schlep George Costanza on the blockbuster hit comedy Seinfeld crowned a 25-plus-year career on stage, screen and television. While George could be at turns pitiful, nasty, charming, devious and unscrupulous, the critics and audiences loved him. Alexander's portrayal was honoured with six Emmy Award nominations and four Golden Globe nominations, an American Television Award, two American Comedy Awards and a Screen Actors Guild Award.
As Elaine Benes, who held her own as the endearingly eccentric sole female member of the Seinfeld foursome, Julia Louis-Dreyfus was recognized with several critical honors. For her role as the dance-challenged, workplace-weary, and "get out"-yelling purveyor of bad dates, she received an Emmy Award, a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Golden Globe Award, four American Comedy Awards and two Viewers for Quality Television Awards.
As the bumbling, scheming and mysterious would-be entrepreneur Kramer of Seinfeld, Michael Richards won three Emmy Award for his performance.
