Adapted from an Emmy Award-winning teleplay, "12 Angry Men" was made into a movie in 1957 and was nominated for "Best Picture" at the Oscars and "Best Actor" (Henry Fonda) at the Golden Globe Awards.  The stage play was nominated for the 2005 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play and awarded the 2005 Drama Desk Award for Best Revival of a Play.
