“I have wanted to be an actor for as long as I can remember, and to be able to count you all as my peers is beyond my wildest dreams,” Brosnahan said onstage. She thanked her publicist and creative team along with all the “incredible actors,” background actors and production team. “Thank you for taking a chance on us,” she finished.
In the press room backstage, Brosnahan talked about the industry in regard to opportunities for women. “Doors still need to be opened for women. While we’ve come a long way, … 4 percent of directors are women, [there are] struggles for women of color. … We’re talking a lot about it, but we have a lot of work to do. We can’t stop — this is just the beginning.”
