Jill Soloway Wins the Emmy for Comedy Direction, Coins the Night’s Best Catchphrase, ‘Topple the Patriarchy’


As she clutched her Emmy award for Outstanding Directing for a Comedy Series, Jill Soloway thanked Amazon for bringing her onboard its TV revolution. “I’ve always wanted to be part of a movement. This TV show allows me to take my dreams about unlikable Jewish people, queer folk, trans folk, and make them heroes. Thank you to the trans community for your lived lives.” Then she slipped in one of the evening’s best catchphrases. (Soloway’s production company is also called Topple.) Watch her take Hollywood one step closer to ending the patriarchy above.
