Ephron was nominated for three screenwriting Oscars, for "Silkwood" (with Alice Arlen), "When Harry Met Sally ... " and "Sleepless in Seattle" (with David S. Ward and Jeff Arch). Her screenwriting credits also include

"Julie and Julia,""Hanging Up,""Michael,""My Blue Heaven" and "Heartburn" -- based on her novel of the same name marriage to Washington Post reporter Carl Bernstein.
