She made her television debut in the series “The Seven Wishes of a Rich Kid” (1979) and the appeared on the big screen in “Little Darlings” (1980). Meanwhile, she was working on the stage of Broadway, too. However, she had to work for some time before she attracted the attention of critics.

In 1995, she was nominated for the Tony Award for her successful appearance in the play “Indiscretions” (1994). Soon, she was invited to take one of the lead roles in the sitcom “Sex and the City” (1998-2004) created by Darren Star and it was definitely the right decision. The sitcom was criticised because of the influence it has on teenagers, though audiences adored the series and every season had outstandingly high ratings. More, the series were nominated for more than 50 Emmy and 24 Golden Globe Awards, and Nixon won an Emmy and two Screen Actors Guild Awards for the role of Miranda Hobbes.
