GLOW’s Shauna Duggins wins Emmy for stunt coordination


This Emmy win for GLOW is unprecedented for an awesome reason!

Shauna Duggins, the stunt coordinator for the hit Netflix comedy series, GLOW, won an Emmy for Outstanding Stunt Coordination over the weekend at the Creative Arts Emmys. Yes, it’s the first for the series, but this win is also significant for another reason.

Duggins is the first woman to ever win a Primetime Emmy in this category. She beat out other comedic shows like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Saturday Night Live, Shameless, and Cobra Kai.

This isn’t Duggin’s first brush with award recognition. She received a nomination for her work on Alias in 2006. Back in 2010, Dorenda Moore won a Daytime Emmy for stunt coordination.

Season 1 of GLOW also won a Creative Arts Emmy for Outstanding Production Design and received a nomination for Outstanding Casting. The show itself is nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing, and Outstanding Supporting Actress for Betty Gilpin.

After nervously accepting her Emmy, she thanked her peers, whom she sees as mentors and friends. And although she knows that she is the first woman to win in this category, she says that “This show, in general, breaks the mold for women.”
