Sherman-Palladino earned her first Emmy nomination in 1992 as a member of the writing staff of “Roseanne,” a gig she chose over a callback for a role as a dancer in “Cats.” A little more than a quarter of a century later, she became the first person to win Emmys for comedy series program, writing and director in the same year for the first season of Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” her show about a Manhattan housewife in 1958 who becomes a standup comedian. After three seasons, the show has been nominated for a total of 54 Emmys, winning 20 (six for Sherman-Palladino), while a fourth season is due in February 2022. Prior to “Maisel,” her biggest claim to fame was creating “Gilmore Girls,” which ran for seven seasons on the WB and CW before returning for a four-episode revival on Netflix in 2016.
