Anderson won a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series in 2016 for his role as Christine Baskets, Chip and Dale’s mother (twins both played by Zach Galifianakis). The actor was nominated in the category three years in a row, and he previously won Daytime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program for his work on Fox’s “Life with Louie” in 1997 and 1998.

One of Louie’s most beloved roles came in 2016, when he played Christine Baskets in the FX sitcom Baskets.
