For her role, along with the cast of the show, she was nominated by the Screen Actors Guild as the best ensemble in a comedy series.

The actress was born as Anne Elizabeth Ramsay on September 11, 1960, in Los Angeles County, California and grew up in La Habra, a town in the northwest corner of Orange County, California. Anne Ramsay is a graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where she received her bachelor’s degree.
She was cast in her very first professional role in an industry film and also formed an acting group called The Continuum alongside four of her UCLA acting student friends. They wrote and starred in the 1987 play Waiting at the Carpet Company Stage (now known as Playwrights’ Arena). According to a Times critic, the play was undoubtedly a play with a future. As a masterpiece, it ran for five months on the Carpet Company Stage, attracting the attention of both critics and Hollywood agents, opening the door for Anne to enter Hollywood and win her as an agent.
In 1992 Anne Ramsay was given her career-defining role as Helen Haley in the sports comedy A League of Their Own. In the same year, she also played the role of Dr. McCormick in the movie Critters 4 and got her first leading role in the TV series Mad About You. From 1992 to 1999 she played the role of Lisa Stemple in 93 episodes. Before that, she had played in small roles in the movies A Taste of Hemlock and Class Action. She also starred in the television works – A Year in the Life, Mr. Belvedere, Something’s Out There, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Hunter, Booker, Doctor, and The Man in the Family.
After Mad About You ended, Anne had no trouble finding roles. Although she apparently concentrated on TV movies and short films, she finally found success with a supporting role in the series The L Word, which portrays the life of a group of lesbians and their friends, connections, families, and lovers in West Hollywood. She later became part of the cast of Six Feet Under in 2005, where she appeared in six episodes as Jackie Feldman.

Is She Gay Or Lesbian?
Anne Ramsay has successfully kept every single detail of her love life away from the media. She is currently believed to be single, never been married and has no children. Although her current relationship status is usually compared to Lisa Stemple, her character in Mad About You, who is always looking for love, Anne has made it clear that she is not that desperate.
There is no record of her being in a relationship, but some sources have reported that she may be married but has simply decided to keep details of this aspect of her life a secret. On the other hand, there is also speculation that she might be gay, which could be the reason why she has not been in a relationship with a man, at least openly. Either way, none of these speculations were ever addressed by Anne Ramsay.
