Brooks' hit Broadcast News (1987); Albert Brooks was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor as the insecure, supremely ethical network TV reporter, who offers the rhetorical question, "Wouldn't this be a great world if insecurity and desperation made us more attractive?" He also won accolades for his role in 1998's Out of Sight, playing an untrustworthy banker and ex-convict. In 1997, Brooks married Kimberly Shlain, then a 31-year old website designer and they had two children.
