Shauna Duggins Is The First Woman To Win The Emmy For Stunt Coordination

Stuntwoman Shauna Duggins made history on Saturday when she accepted a Creative Arts Emmy Award for her work on the Netflix series “Glow.”

Garner and Duggins began working together in 2001 on the set of J.J. Abrams’ series “Alias.” The stuntwoman was nominated for an Emmy in 2006 for her work on the show, but Saturday marks her first win. Duggins went on to work with Garner on a number of other projects, including the star’s latest movie, “Peppermint.”

Duggins said she was “honored to be the first woman” to win in the category, according to Deadline. The stuntwoman also spoke about “Glow” in her acceptance speech, saying that “this show, in general, breaks the mold for women.”

She received an outpouring of support on social media. Garner posted the news to her Instagram story, calling Duggins her “soul sister.”

“Go Shauna! I love you!” Garner wrote.
