The Emmys 2021 was no stranger to standing ovations. Mare Of Easttown’s Kate Winslet and Hacks’ Jean Smart both received them, but it was the reaction to British actor, writer, director and producer Michaela Coel’s first win at the awards show that felt like the biggest, most deserved moment of unified praise during the whole night.

Coel was honoured at tonight’s (September 19) ceremony for I May Destroy You, picking up the award for Outstanding Writing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie. The show, which aired last year, explored the complicated nuances of sexual consent in its many forms, focusing on its creator’s character of Arabella as she tried to piece together her memories of a blurry night out.

“I just wrote a little something for writers really,” she began, while stepping onto the stage to pick up her trophy. 

“Write the title that scares you, that makes you feel uncertain, that isn’t comfortable. I dare you in a world that entices us to browse through the lives of others to help us better determine how we feel about ourselves, and to in turn fill the need to be constantly visible.”
