Best: 'Big Little Lies' Wins Big

It’s not just that the HBO miniseries boasted a powerhouse cast, or that it was suspenseful, or that it was the perfect sendup of ridiculously wealthy enclaves. It also revealed the still largely untapped potential for telling women’s stories. Based on the book by Liane Moriarty, and shepherded to the screen by stars/executive producers Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman (as well as David E. Kelley), Big Little Lies proved once again that the premium-cable network doesn't have to rely solely on dragons, robots and boobs and dudes to have a hit on its hands. Kidman, Laura Dern and Alexander Skarsgard took home awards for their fierce performances, and the show easily bested other contenders in the limited series category. This triumph, along with victories for The Handmaid’s Tale and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, felt like an appropriate kick-off to the Time's Up movement. PR
