Reed Morano: Congrats to The Handmaid’s Tale director Reed Morano, the first woman to win for the Emmy for drama series directing in 22 years.
Lena Waithe: Kudos to Lena Waithe, who is the first black woman to win an Emmy for best comedy writing for her spectacular Master of None episode, “Thanksgiving.” (Our own Kathryn O’Kane praised the episode this summer as part of this blog’s #SummerPicks!)
Silent Revival: The New York Times makes an interesting point, positing that silent film has made a comeback as more and more users watch videos without sound in their social media feeds. If you’re interested in seeing silent films from the pre-Facebook days, several have been preserved by our Women’s Film Preservation Fund. Most of the WFPF’s 100+ preservations are available in our offices for viewing. Check out the full list on our website.
