Jennifer Lilly ’96 has picked up an Emmy award for her editing work on the Netflix TV series Master of None. She was one of five nominees in the category of “Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Comedy Series.” Master of None also earned a second Emmy for best comedy writing.
Master of None, created by Aziz Ansari and Alan Yang, features Ansari in the lead role as a struggling New York-based actor. Lilly won the Emmy for her work on The Thief, an episode shot in black-and-white in honor of the 1948 Italian classic Bicycle Thieves.
“I feel incredibly lucky to have had the opportunity to work on a show with such a distinctive viewpoint—one that represents the world in honest, diverse, complex, not to mention hilarious ways,” Lilly told Bowdoin News. “Such inspired content, and the incomparably talented collaborators that helped bring it to life, have made this one of the most rewarding experiences of my career. I am so grateful to have been a part of it, and am honored to be recognized by my colleagues and the Academy.”
