Helen Mirren at New York premiere of The Hundred Foot Journey.
Congratulations: to NYWIFT members Sheila Nevins, who won TWO Creative Arts Emmys (one for One last Hug: Three Days at Grief Camp and one for Life According to Sam) and Susan Lacy, whose final season at American Masters won in the Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series category.
Loved: Helen Mirren (as usual) in The Hundred Foot Journey.
Excited to share: some good news! CBS will be the first network to feature an all-women cast on a sports talk show, premiering this fall on the CBS Sports network.
