The Tony Awards' Family Feud

Poor Jennifer Ehle. Can't she ever get the limelight to herself? The 30-year-old actress is going head to head with her mother, Rosemary Harris, for the Tony Award for best actress in a play. (There's never been this type of family feud, although a father and daughter squared off once, as did an aunt and niece.) Ehle's nominated for her role as the mistress in Tom Stoppard's "The Real Thing." It's not the first time she's played second fiddle. She was the other woman (for a while, at least) in the 1995 BBC version of "Pride and Prejudice," too. Apparently, she's not too concerned about being upstaged. Harris will play an older version of Ehle's character in the movie "Sunshine." Every mother should have a daughter like that.
