Don’t miss: NYWIFT’s 34th Annual Muse Awards’ recaps (nywift.org and NYWIFT Blog) if you missed the event held last week in New York featuring honorees Mary Bailey, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Dawn Ostroff and Wanda Sykes. It was a huge success!

Feeling frustrated: with signs of progress for female screenwriters but still not enough. Yesterday “The Black List” was released, a survey of the best unproduced screenplays from 2014 as voted by over 500 development executives. This year the top script was written by a woman and about a woman, but less then 10 out of the 70 screenplays on the list were written by women. 

Preparing to get my laugh on: upon reading Amy Schumer is going to produce a Comedy Central show starring Rachel Feinstein.

Congratulations to: NYWIFT member and producer Suzanne Hayes Kelly for the great review her film Isn’t It Delicious received from the LA Times—“Delicious Delivers a Tart Tale of a Dying Salty Matriarch.”

Terry Lawler is NYWIFT’s Executive Director. Tune in every Tuesday for her picks.
