HBO's Big Little Lies won the Emmy for best limited series on Sunday night. I was incredibly excited since I read the book years ago and passed it on to all my friends. Stars Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman spoke on behalf of the cast and crew of the series, dedicating the show's win to the empowerment of women.
"It's been an incredible year for women in television," Witherspoon said. "Bring women to the front of their own stories and make them the hero. Thank you for that opportunity."
Kidman echoed her co-star's sentiments: "Now, more great roles for women, please!" she said as she concluded their speech.
Backstage, the co-stars spoke about a possible season two, and how the series has opened the doors to more open conversations with fans and viewers.
Congratulations to all the winners tonight - especially to the women.
I leave you with more beautiful looks from some talented leading ladies.
