Complete admiration for this talented woman. Let's hope it's not a "new trend", and that it simply is.

I was & still am in total shock. I don't take this lightly. It's been a dream of mine for 22 years since I stepped onto my first film set. Funny enough, I didn't even realize that it had been 22 years since a woman (the great #mimileder) had won for outstanding drama directing at the Emmys.
First- to be in a category with the most talented directors out there- #leslilinkaglatter #thedufferbrothers #jonahnolan #stephendaldry & our own hilarious #katedennis is unreal to me. How did we get here?
Then to have the show that @elisabethmossofficial , @colinwatkinson, @broosemiller, @warrenlittlefield, @anecrabtree , @julieberghoff and @Hulu and @MGM and the whole amazing cast & crew poured their heart and soul into - actually win! And not just one Emmy, but writing, supporting actress, guest actress, cinematography, production design, directing, lead actress and outstanding drama series - is like what universe is this? This kind of shit never happens. It feels like a dream. I am so so grateful to everyone who watched the show and liked it and to everyone who put their souls onto the screen. #margaretatwood #julianclarke @whallam @chrdonald @boccia @mikebarker27 @floriasigismondi @heathcote_mike #kariskogland @a__tay @jthelman @beespringborn @jkumai @lsloane14 #woodysidarous #alexisbledel #joefiennes @anndowd #thehandmaidstale. I must thank my mini-me, from the next generation of great directors @danigirdwood - and notice I didn't say "female director". It might sound crazy, but I'm just hoping to start a new trend where we're all simply known as filmmakers/DPs/directors- qualified by our skills & our talent. Not by our gender.
