There have been many excellent, award-winning guest appearances on “Law and Order: SVU” over the years. However, there was one guest spot in particular that earned a former star of “Sex and the City” her second Emmy.
Cynthia Nixon played Miranda Hobbes on “Sex and the City” for six seasons. In 2008, she followed her sitcom success with a stirring performance in the "Law & Order: SVU" Season 9 opener, "Alternate."
Nixon played psychiatrist Dr. Anna Young, who suffers from dissociative identity disorder. When you watch Nixon switch deftly between five different personalities, it is easy to see why the performance earned her an Emmy.
