Emmy Nominations: “I Might Destroy You,” “Hacks,” “Pen 15,” and More


The outrageous disdain for “I May Destroy You” at this year’s Golden Globe Awards is still more outrageous than ever, but Michaela Cowell’s acclaimed drama is getting a lot of love at the Emmy Awards. The HBO Limited Series received eight nominations, including acting, directing, and writing gestures for Coel. Coel’s “I May Destroy You” tells the story of a writer to reckoning in the wake of his sexual assault.

“Hacks”, another women’s and Hollywood favorite, has earned many names including a stellar comedy series, outstanding writing for a comedy series (Lucia Aniello, Jane Statzky, Paul W. Downs), and outstanding directing for a comedy series (Aniello). Stars Jan Smart and Hannah Einbender are both nominees for Honors in Acting, first in Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series and last in Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series. The HBO dark comedy tells the story of the stand-up legend (Smart) and the 20-something movie (Einbinder) she hires to tell her jokes.

Smart is also in the running for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Series, Limited Film, or Anthology for her role as Helen, Mary’s mother, in “Mary of East Town”. As expected, Winslet earned the nod as an outstanding actress in a series, limited movie, or anthology for her starring role in the HBO murder mystery. She and Cowell are joined in this category by Cynthia Erivo (“Genius: Aretha”), Anya Taylor-Joy (“The Queen’s Gambit”) and Elizabeth Olsen (“WandaVision”).

MJ Rodriguez is making history as the first transgender woman to receive an award in a major acting category at the Emmys. She was nominated for Outstanding Actress in the Dramatic Series category for “Pose”. Other nominees in this category include Ozo Aduba (“In Process”) and Olivia Colman (“The Crown”).

We were pleasantly surprised to see “Pen15” receive some much-deserved recognition from the Emmys. The upcoming comedy has received three awards: Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series (Maya Erskine), and Outstanding Actors for a Comedy Series (Melissa Delese). Erskine and Anna Kunkel co-created “Pen15” and starred as their teenage version.

Also encouraging is the fact that half of the notable directing directors for a dramatic series are women: Julie Ann Robinson (“Bridgerton”), Jessica Hobbs (“The Crown”) and Liz Garbus (“The Handmaid’s Tale”). Gestures.

Other female directors with honors include—but are thankfully not limited to—Kirsten Johnson (“Dick Johnson Is Dead,” Outstanding Directing for a Documentary/Nonfiction Program) and Susanna Fogel (“The Flight Attendant,” Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series).
