Earlier this year, many were downright shocked when Michaela Cole’s critically-acclaimed HBO/BBC series I May Destroy You was snubbed at the Golden Globes. The series, which tackles sexual assault from a number of honest, normally-unheard from people, received praise from the GLAAD Awards, the Independent Spirit Awards, and the BAFTAs. It was dope to see that Cole’s series ended up with six Primetime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Limited or Anthology Series, Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie (Coel), Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie (Essiedu), Outstanding Directing for a Limited Series, Movie, or Dramatic Special (twice!), and Outstanding Writing for a Limited Series, Movie, or Dramatic Special (Coel).
