Clayburgh starred in over 25 feature films, including Running with Scissors, I'm Dancing As Fast As I Can, Silver Streak, Semi Tough and Never Again.

In 1978 she rose to screen prominence with her performance in An Unmarried Woman. Her portrayal of a newly-divorced woman coping with life earned her nominations for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe, and she won the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival.

Television audiences know her from numerous series and movies, including The Practice, Ally McBeal, Trinity, Everything's Relative and her Emmy-nominated roles in Hustling and Nip/Tuck.

On Broadway Clayburgh appeared in the revival of Neil Simon's Barefoot in the Park, Richard Greenberg's A Naked Girl on the Appian Way, a revival of Noel Coward's Design for Living, the original production of Tom Stoppard's Jumpers and the Tony Award-winning musicals Pippin and The Rothschilds.

Off-Broadway she originated the role of Sunny in The Exonerated. She also appeared in The Busy World is Hushed, and was nominated for the Lucille Lortel Award as well as a Drama League Award.

At Lincoln Center Clayburgh was seen as Virginia in The Clean House, for which she received nominations for both an Outer Critics Circle Award and a Drama League Award.
