Both were nominated for directing Tonys — musical for Paulus and play for MacKinnon.

    Way to go, Meryl! I think it’s so wonderful that she’s been so “loud” with her support of women’s rights and women in the arts for the past years (ok–forever) what with the American Women’s History Museum project, consciously choosing female directors for her past few films, and making speeches like this. What a woman. She’s such a goddess.
