Shauna Duggins Is The First Woman To Win The Emmy For Stunt Coordination

By Doha Madani/HuffPost

Stuntwoman Shauna Duggins made history on Saturday when she accepted a Creative Arts Emmy Award for her work on the Netflix series “Glow.”

Duggins is the first woman to ever receive the award for Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Comedy Series or Variety Program. The stuntwoman is a former gymnast who is possibly best known for her work as a double for actress Jennifer Garner.

Garner and Duggins began working together in 2001 on the set of J.J. Abrams’ series “Alias.” The stuntwoman was nominated for an Emmy in 2006 for her work on the show, but Saturday marks her first win. Duggins went on to work with Garner on a number of other projects, including the star’s latest movie, “Peppermint.”
