Oscars won or nominated by people associated with Gummer[edit]

.... have nothing to do with Gummer. Meryl Streep has won a lot of awards and achieved a lot in her life, but none of this is relevant to the fact that she is Gummer's mother. The fact that Gummer followed in her footsteps is also not associated with Meryl Streep's Oscar. Simply this is mentioning Streep's Oscars out of context and for no valid reason. Please see WP:UNDUE and WP:NPOV. Also the fact that she made a film for a director who was Oscar nominated is irrelevant to Gummer. Lasse Hallström is an Oscar nominee, Vanessa Redgrave is an Oscar winner, so is Marcia Gay Harden, Toni Collette and Glenn Close are Oscar nominees, and Michael C. Hall has won some awards too. I think there are probably a bunch of Golden Globes, SAGs, BAFTAs, Tony Award and Emmy Awards associated with the people mentioned in this article, so why not mention all of these? Because they are not relevant to Mamie Gummer. And that is why I've removed this from the article. Let's not try to establish Mamie's notability by her association with other notable people. It's enough that the article name drops seemingly every notable actor/director she's worked with. Let's not try to say that their awards rub off on her somehow.

Wow, calm down. I completely agree, I just didn't fully understand the reasons for your previous revision, that's all. Perhaps it would be a good idea to remove some names from the long list of 'notable' people in her article.Jessica A R H (talk) 15:23, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

I am calm. I was only expanding on the reasons I provided in my initial edit. It looks much better now. Thank you. Rossrs (talk) 20:32, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, thanks :) Jessica A R H (talk) 21:54, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

I apologise if you feel I overreacted and I think I did overreact. Now that I read my comments again a few days later, perhaps I was not as calm as I thought. No hard feelings though, I hope. Rossrs (talk) 07:07, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

Unfortunate wording[edit]

Mamie Gummer made her adult motion picture debut - present in text as of 2011-02-01. I think that it can be worded better, but I do not know how right off the bat. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.233.249.102 (talk) 08:13, 1 February 2011 (UTC)
