Terry’s Picks: Tatiana Maslany, Sci-Fi Women, Hiring Disparity

Congrats:
Tatiana
Maslany finally earned her first Emmy
nomination
this year for playing not one but six leading roles on Orphan Black, one of my favorite shows.

Food
for thought:
Teo Bugbee points out in this
piece for The Daily Beast
that, with the exception of Amy Schumer
in Trainwreck, most strong women
making waves at the recent box office appear in science fiction.

Call
to arms:
Homeland
director Lesli Linka Glatter says that Hollywood
must proactively address the “disconnect”
that occurs at the
hiring level when it comes to giving jobs to women. She is one of only two women
nominated for an Emmy for directing a narrative series this year.
