I finished Foxy: My Life in Three Acts by Pam Grier with Andrea Cagan a few minutes ago. It’s a story of pain and courage by a woman with great strength of character and enormous talent and intelligence.
I want to comment on one of her statements, which came toward the end of the book when she was talking about working on The L Word. It was a thought I’ve often had myself. She said,
I thought our regular cast were some of the more talented actresses I’d ever worked with. And still, the show got absolutely no nominations during its run.
Ms. Grier is so right. There should have been awards, Emmy Awards especially. For acting, for writing, for directing, for costuming. I’ve always felt the creators and actors in The L Word were cheated of awards and ignored when they should have been honored.
I’m excited to know that I’m not the only one who thinks that.
