Congratulations to Issa Rae. The actress received the 2022 Visionary Award from the Producers Guild.
The award is presented to those that “honors producers across television, film or new media who share inspiring, uplifting stories that add unique value to society and culture.”
Gail Berman and Lucy Fisher, presidents of the Producers Guild of America said in a statement;
“Issa makes us excited for the future of television. With her series Insecure, she achieved the highest levels of comedy, perspective, and performance possible, and her sharp wit and distinct voice will undoubtedly continue to drive quality entertainment featuring underrepresented voices.”
The statement goes on to say, “Beyond Issa’s prolific work, she is a role model and inspiration to the next generation of creatives through her mentorship programs like ColorCreative, and more recently, Project Greenlight. We are thrilled to honor Issa this year.”
Rae is well-deserving of this award due to her multiple projects and achievements in recent years. She created and starred in Insecure for five seasons, she’s an author of her bestseller book, The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl, and she is an executive producer of the hit show “A Black Lady Sketch Show.”
Issa Rae will also be the voice of Jessica Drew/Spider-Woman in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse part one.
Who else is happy for Issa Rae?
