Sigourney Weaver has been nominated for three Academy Awards: Best Actress for Aliens and Gorillas in the Mist: The Story of Dian Fossey, and Best Supporting Actress for Working Girl.
In Alien: Resurrection (1997), Sigourney actually managed to sink the basketball into the hoop backwards on the first take, even though she was not supposed to or intended to. The shot was almost ruined because Ron Perlman broke character because he was so amazed.
Sigourney Weaver had to deal with artificially intelligent spaceships. In the Alien movies, she battles them. In Galaxy Quest, much to her character’s chagrin, she repeated whatever the spaceship said.
