The gender gap is still deep and wide on TV’s biggest night. Among the 1,321 Primetime Emmy nominees in writing, directing, editing, and producing this year, only 328 (25%) are women. The stat remains unchanged from last year, according to an analysis by the Women’s Media Center.
Among these major behind-the-scenes categories, there was an incremental increase in the number of female writers (23% vs. 19%), but there was a decrease in the directing and producing categories.
The Emmy Awards ceremony takes place this Sunday. LD
