Unfortunately she is not credited for no one of them
I think that’s something that happens slowly over time. But, you know, if there are enough isolated examples of success then maybe the dots start joining up and it’s not as slow a process as it sometimes is.

A favorite photo of Alexander Skarsgård after his Emmy win last night (along with Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton) and an excerpt from Vanity Fair:
[Nicole] Kidman stayed at the party for about half an hour before leaving. On her way out, she was approached by admirers from every angle, almost all asking for a selfie. (Kidman, overheard describing the night as “a dream,” obliged in all cases.) Shortly thereafter, Kidman’s on-screen husband and fellow Emmy winner Alexander Skarsgard arrived and was similarly swarmed. Jack McBrayer (better known as “Kenneth the Page” from 30 Rock) looked elated to see Skarsgard as the two embraced like long-lost relatives reunited after years apart. Fellow Swedish actor Joel Kinnaman seemed thrilled for Skarsgard as well, and the two very tall men both (literally) stood out of the crowd as they caught up. At the Governors Ball earlier in the night, Skarsgard let friends pose for photos with his Emmy. When asked whether he had received an avalanche of congratulatory texts and e-mails since his win, the actor admitted, “I haven’t even turned on my phone.”
On Friday night, at the Variety Women in Film Emmys pre-party, Skarsgard—rocking a mustache that only an Alexander Skarsgard could manage to pull off—said that he and the Big Little Lies cast have kept in touch since the show stopped filming via a WhatsApp group. Since Skarsgard’s character, Perry—spoiler alert, for the three of you who have still not watched Big Little Lies out there—dies at the end of the first season, one would think he would not be involved in a potential second season. When these reporters brought up that point to the actor, Skarsgard just flashed a devilish grin. “I wouldn’t be so sure about that!” he said.
