'Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?'

George Segal received his only Oscar nomination for his supporting performance in 1966's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" as Nick, a young college instructor who gets more than he bargains for when he and his wife visit a squabbling couple.

'A Touch of Class'

Segal and Glenda Jackson were perfectly matched in the 1973 comedy "A Touch of Class" as a couple having an affair who fall in love. Segal won the Golden Globe; Jackson earned a Globe and an Oscar for her role.

'Blume in Love'

Segal was at his comedic best in Paul Mazursky's sophisticated 1973 romantic comedy "Blume in Love" as a Beverly Hills divorce attorney attempting to regain his ex-wife (Susan Anspach).
