On the controversial Golden Globe nominations: “It was definitely an interesting time for the world when those Golden Globe nominations came out. Honestly, my focus and my concern [at the time] was more on the subject matter at hand and change that needed to be made, as opposed to how I fit into all of that with the show. Yeah, it was definitely a lot.”

On the audience’s initial reactions and backlash to the lighthearted series: “We never represented it as anything other than what it was going to be. And we didn’t know the world would be in the state that it was in when it came out. People said they were laughing and smiling for the first time in a long time, that it reminded them of what fun felt like and that we were able to offer some escapism and romanticism and travel. I was so proud of that. I did not expect it to all of a sudden be something that people were upset [about]. And we do poke fun at America too. Emily is just as willing to mention things about where she’s from, and they joke about her as much as things are joked about her coworkers or the way of life there. And so when it was little nitpicky things about deep-dish, or that I messed up from the age, I laughed about that. I messed up, I’m so sorry. I know that in this industry, having been in it, having grown up in it, you know that not everyone’s going to love what you do all the time.”

On Emily’s future in season two, on Netflix on December 22: “You really go into different areas of the city, and see Emily trying a little harder and making an effort in her new city. She’s really leaning into the environment and allowing herself to embrace it and become one with it. It’s a heightened version of this world because it’s a comedy and it’s a Darren Star–produced, created, colorful, bright, romantic version of what the story would be.”
