Lynn Elber AP Television Writer Published 10:26 PM EDT Sep 20, 2019 Los Angeles – Even before the winner of the best comedy series Emmy Award was announced Sunday, odds were good that a woman will be giving the acceptance speech. An unprecedented number of the seven nominated comedies are from female creators: defending champion “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” “Fleabag” and “Russian Doll.” Count in “Veep,” with Julia Louis-Dreyfus both its star and an executive producer, and women are ruling the comedy party.

I Feel Like a Woman!" You're losing your audience with every passing beat. The room starts to spin. Sweat forms on your brow. Mistakes have been made, and now you're living with them.
