Joining Chicago's famed Steppenwolf Theatre Company ensemble in 1977, she was one of the group's original members and starred in a number of its original productions.

Allen received her second consecutive Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination for her role in Arthur Miller's A salemi boszorkányok (1996). Subsequently, her work in Jégvihar (1997), opposite Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver, and in Pleasantville (1998), opposite William H. Macy and Jeff Daniels, earned her high praise and several critics' awards; she also co-starred in the action blockbuster Ál/Arc (1997) opposite John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. For her starring role in A manipulátor (2000), Allen received Best Actress nominations at the Golden Globes, the Academy Awards, the SAG Awards, and the Independent Spirit Awards.Throughout the early 2000s Allen worked in both film and television, with roles in three of the Bourne films - A Bourne-csapda (2004), A Bourne-ultimátum (2007), and A Bourne-hagyaték (2012) - as well as Szerelmünk lapjai (2004), Apátlan anyátlanok (2005), and Halálfutam (2008). Allen also received Emmy nominations for Artúr király és a nők (2001) and for the title role in the biopic Georgia O'Keeffe (2009), for which she was also executive producer.
