Emily in Paris writer agrees with Golden Globes backlash, disappointed as 'I May Destroy You' gets snubbed
Popular Netflix show Emily in Paris raked up a storm on social media when it was nominated in two categories for the Golden Globes. For the unversed, Emily In Paris was nominated for best TV series along with a best actress nomination for show lead Lily Collins. Netizens were shocked over how this breezy drama scored two prestigious nominations and received backlash from netizens from all over. "Also, #EmilyinParis? Really?? Were voters really that deprived of international travel they had to vote for an escapist piece of blergh? (I watched every episode.) #globes," tweeted one user.
Now, one of the show's writer Deborah Copaken, has written a piece in which she has stated about how another important show was snubbed. And while she was excited with the nomination for Emily In Paris, she was also enraged by Michaela Coel's show 'I May Destroy You' being overlooked by the Golden Globes.
In a piece for The Guardian, Deborah wrote, "Now, am I excited that Emily in Paris was nominated? Yes. Of course. I’ve never been remotely close to seeing a Golden Globe statue up close, let alone being nominated for one. But that excitement is now unfortunately tempered by my rage over Coel’s snub. That I May Destroy You did not get one Golden Globe nod is not only wrong, it’s what is wrong with everything."
Dear @MichaelaCoel: I was a writer on Emily in Paris, but your show was my favorite show since the dawn of TV, & this is just wrong. I loved I MAY DESTROY YOU, and I thank you, personally, for giving us your heart, your mind, your resilience, & your humor. https://t.co/5KcTVdkZLQ— Deborah Copaken (@dcopaken) February 3, 2021
