Michaela Coel Dedicates Emmy Win To ‘Every Single Survivor Of Sexual Assault’

Michaela Coel, creator and star of I May Destroy You, won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie on Sunday night.“Write the tale that scares you, that makes you feel uncertain, that makes you feel uncomfortable. I dare you,” she said in her acceptance speech.She also dedicated the award to “every single survivor of sexual assault.”The British actor and writer has received universal acclaim for her singular voice and vision in writing, producing, directing and starring in the series, widely considered one of the best shows in the last few years.Based partly on Coel’s own experiences, I May Destroy You is a searing exploration of sexual assault, trauma, power and consent that doesn’t resort to neat and tidy narratives or to giving its characters “closure.”Coel has previously won multiple BAFTA awards, the Peabody Award, and the Television Critics Association Award for Individual Achievement in Drama for the series, among other accolades. Notably, the show was largely overlooked by the Golden Globes and Screen Actors Guild Awards earlier this year.In one of the most stacked categories of Sunday night’s Emmys, Coel was nominated alongside the writers of HBO’s Mare of Easttown, Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit and three episodes of Disney+ and Marvel’s Wandavision.Over the past few years, the limited series categories at the Emmy Awards have increasingly become among the most competitive of the night. As seemingly every major company in Hollywood launches its own streaming service, the limited series format has become a dominant way of producing more shows and giving creators more flexibility. No doubt the glut of acclaimed limited series will continue.EMMYS 2021:2021 Emmy Awards Winners: The Complete ListSee What The Best-Dressed Celebrities Wore On The Red Carpet Of The 2021 Emmy AwardsRuPaul Makes Emmys History As The Most-Awarded Black Artist Ever
