Musical Puzzler Again

OK, I can see we are going to have to make these puzzlers a little easier if they are to be solved by anyone at all. I am thinking maybe I'll broaden the scope of the questions, or make them open-ended teasers with multiple possible answers. In the meantime, here's the answer to the previous brain-tugger:

I asked: Who, when accepting their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, refused to perform their songs on the grounds that Iggy and The Stooges had not yet been inducted into the Hall O' Fame? Not only that, but they got said Stooges (well, the surviving members anyway), to play instead?

The answer: Madonna. Say what you like about Madge, but this is probably the coolest thing she's ever done. Anyone who is as big a fan of Sir Ig and his Stooge-friends as she clearly is can do no wrong.

Yes, at the Hall Of Fame induction ceremony in 2009, Ms. Ciccone insisted that The Stooges play in her stead, since they had not yet been given the honour of being in the Hall. So what did they play? They played Burning Up and Ray of Light. As Iggy left the stage, he reportedly said to the Material Girl, “You make me feel shiny and new, like a virgin, touched for the very first time.”

Okay, this week's question: We all know Madge has been in a few flicks, but what is her one and only award for acting?

Hint: This ain't it.
