The series yielded several nominations including - WGA, GLAAD and The Critic’s Choice Awards. She was also nominated for an Emmy as well as a Grammy for her 2016 HBO special Boyish Girl Interrupted, a GLAAD Award nomination for the Netflix Original Documentary, Tig, and her memoir, I’m Just a Person, is a New York Times Bestseller.
