When asked how she was feeling about the nominations in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Natasha Lyonne, who both created and starred in the series, said “It feels very, I don’t know the word that keeps coming to me, but it’s creatively affirming more than anything to know how hard we worked and how scary it was to dive into the deep end on this show. It feels very encouraging to keep on that train… The idea that this was well-received instead of alienating for audiences, really makes me encouraged to continue along those lines to want to ask big questions about what it all means.”
