Congratulations to Lena Waithe and Lisa Joy - the ONLY women nominated for writing Emmys in their categories
- Lena Waithe and Aziz Ansari - nominated for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series for Master of None “Thanksgiving”
- Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan - nominated for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series for Westworld “The Bicameral Mind”
While it’s great that two women (and women of color!!!!) were nominated this year, it is incredibly disappointing that between the 12 episodes nominated in the two categories, only two were written by women, and none were written by just women. Even shows like The Handmaid’s Tale that have been praised for their representation of feminism were nominated for episodes written by men.
