We’re not one bit surprised!

Yes, The Hollywood Reporter has only gone and named our very own Sharon Horgan among the most influential women in international television.

The list which consists of influential non-American female executives and creatives based outside the United States places a spotlight on the state of gender equality in film and television.

So, it should come as as no shock that Sharon, who is a writer-producer-actor, seven-time IFTA winner and two-time BAFTA winner made the cut!

Speaking about their reasonings for choosing Sharon, the publication said: “Horgan’s well-established status as one of the most sharply funny TV creators around reached a whole new level with Apple TV+‘s hit Bad Sisters.

“The delightfully macabre comedy-drama — which she wrote, produced and stars in — garnered four Emmy nominations (including one for Horgan as outstanding lead actress), and is already in production on season two.

“She also created the HBO show Divorce, starring Sarah Jessica Parker, the recent Starz horror comedy Shining Vale, starring Courteney Cox, and has several upcoming projects in the works, including shows with Hulu and Amazon.”

Other notable female creatives on the list include Cécile Frot-Coutaz, the CEO of Sky Studios and UK screenwriter Sally Wainwright.

Earlier this year, Sharon also received two nominations at the 75th Emmy Awards.

One for the Lead Actress in a Drama Series category for her role as Eva Garvey in Bad Sisters.

While the other was for Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series, for her work on the episode The Prick, which she wrote alongside Dave Finkel and Brett Baer.

There’s no stopping her!
