Sissy Spacek: Career in pictures

1975: Spacek earned her scream queen status as Carrie in Stephen King's horror classic by the same name. Not only is Carrie an outcast at school, but she’s trying to manage telekinetic powers and an overly religious mother. Things come to a disastrous end when she’s crowned prom queen only to have pig’s blood dumped on her head. Spacek nabbed a lead actress Oscar nod for the role. Pictured: Spacek in "Carrie."
