Yeeesssssssss, Queen!! 👑❤️ THIS is called a BOSS move 💯 because Black Women Handle Business all day every day and twice ✌🏼on Sunday! 🙏🏼

Last Sunday, Michaela Coel, 33, became the first Black woman to take home the Emmy award for Outstanding Writing for a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her HBO drama, "I May Destroy You," which she wrote, directed and starred in.

The 12-episode series is inspired by Coel's experience of being a survivor of sexual assault.

But as Coel was pitching what would become her award-winning show back in 2017, she originally turned down a $1 million deal to make the show with Netflix, according to a July 2020 profile with VULTURE.

Despite the enticing $1 million deal, Coel turned down the offer when she was denied the ability to retain any percentage of the copyright to her work.

According to VULTURE during one phone call with a high-level Netflix executive, Coel tried to negotiate to retain 5% of her rights, which got cut down to 2%, then 1%, and ultimately 0.5%.

Before the executive ended the call to run the numbers up the chain, she told Coel: "Michaela? I just want you to know I'm really proud of you. You're doing the right thing."

It was a clarifying moment for Coel, she told VULTURE:

"I remember thinking, 'I've been going down rabbit holes in my head, like people thinking I'm paranoid, I'm acting sketchy, I'm killing off all my agents.' Then she said those words to me, and I finally realized — I'm not crazy. This is crazy."

Coel ultimately fired her U.S. agency when she learned they were pushing her toward the deal and would earn an undisclosed amount from the partnership.

By fall 2017, she pitched "I May Destroy You" to a producer with the BBC. She received an email the next day saying she would have everything she negotiated for: a seat at the table on production, full creative control and the rights to the work.

"I May Destroy You" premiered in June 2020 to favorable reviews for its exploration of a young Black woman rebuilding her life, career and relationships after a sexual assault.

In her acceptance speech at the Emmy awards ceremony, Coel offered a few words to fellow writers:

"Write the tale that scares you, that makes you feel uncertain, that is uncomfortable. I dare you.

"In a world that entices us to browse through the lives of others to help us better determine how we feel about ourselves, and to, in turn, feel the need to be constantly visible, for visibility these days seems to somehow equate to success.

"Do not be afraid to disappear, from it, from us, for a while, and see what comes to you in the silence."

She dedicated her story and award to all survivors of sexual assault.

Coel's historic win stands out as a rare exception of the evening. Despite a record number of nominees from historically excluded communities, all major acting trophies went to white actors.

We are still recruiting for applicants and mentors to help be apart of creating opportunities for underserved youth in film and media

We are excited to be launching out Aim-N-Inspire project in collaboration with @skydance

When accepted as an AIM-N-Inspire 2021 participant, youth will become a member of Better Crew, the media production team at Better Youth and will receive a scholarship (valued at $2000) that pays for enrollment and activities including access to all related equipment needed for projects and events. As a result, project participation is of no cost.

Our Professional Development (Mar - June), Media Arts Training (June - August), and Exhibition (Sept - Nov) phases will be deployed in three 10-week sessions. #applynow

@janefonda did something outstanding today by being present to speak to a cohort of @betteryouthlive and @realtoreelglobal youth and almuni. Which included new recruits from our new AIM N INSPIRE Program who are starting their Journey’s into Animation, Interactive Gaming and Film next week. It’s an incredible investment when entertainment professionals come out of the spotlight to shed light on their career paths, share advice and space with youth that want to be where they are but do not have the same level of support or network in order to know where to start. It’s a brave, courageous and selfless act whenever it does happen. We are so proud and grateful to be the pipeline for urban youth to have access to opportunities within Hollywood and the entertainment industry.
