Margaret

Academy Award®, Golden Globe®, Emmy®, Tony®, and BAFTA Award® winner, Ellen Burstyn stars as Margaret Barrish

Former First Mother-in-Law Margaret Barrish is the tough, tell-it-like-it-is matriarch of the family, mother to Elaine and grandmother to T.J. and Douglas. A former Vegas showgirl who's seen (and done) it all, Margaret appreciates a cocktail or two, doesn't shy away from the limelight, and never feels the need to conform to convention. Though a staunch supporter of her daughter and grandsons, Margaret isn't blind to their shortcomings, and is willing to show some tough love and speak her mind when it comes to the choices she fears may take too heavy a toll on her family.
