While it was in a lesser-known award, Katie still got recognition for her role in “Batman Begins.” She earned a nomination for a Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as childhood sweetheart to Bruce Wayne.
She didn’t win, but it’s still cool to be nominated. We don’t want to ruin the party, but we also have to say she got awarded a Golden Raspberry for Worst Supporting Actress for the same role. Yikes.
A Mainstay on “Dawson’s Creek”
Actors staying for the entire duration of a show is rare. Well, when the curtain finally fell for “Dawson’s Creek” in 2003, Katie was the only actor to have appeared in all 128 episodes. That’s pretty impressive for a show that went on for 6 seasons. Not even James Van Der Beek can say that!
We loved watching her, and she was easily our favorite character. No, it’s not because she was in every episode.
She Co-Starred With Michael Keaton
In 2004, Katie Holmes was cast alongside Michael Keaton and Marc Blucas in “First Daughter.” She played Samantha Mackenzie, daughter of the US President. The movie follows her as she heads off to college, which isn't easy, being the daughter of such a high-profile man.
She ends up falling for Marc Blucas, who plays a graduate student at her university. It’s a fun rom-com and worth a watch if you have some time to kill.
Being a Part of a Power Couple
Some people may forget, but Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise were quite a power couple. Yes, back in the early 00s, they were considered the holy grail of Hollywood romance. They held the title together with other famous celebrity couples, like Brangelina and Bennifer.
Anyways, TomKat was also thought to be invincible, but sadly, cracks formed over time. TomKat just became Tom and Katie after their divorce, and that was probably for the best.
Katie Is the Centerfold
If you go back through your old “Vanity Fair” magazines, you will find an edition where Katie Holmes donned the cover. Yes, it was also with her daughter and with Tom Cruise, but she was still on the cover! That is more than we can say.
The photoshoot was done by world-famous photographer Annie Leibovitz and is a great cover if we are speaking honestly. The family may not have been perfect, but the photo is close to it.
