ELLE’s 6th annual Women in TV issue

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

ELLE’s 6th annual Women in TV issue shines a light on the must-see women on TV right now, and there’s no doubt that Priyanka Chopra, Viola Davis, Olivia Wilde, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Golden Globe Winner Taraji P. Henson are the women to watch in 2016. 

PRIYANKA CHOPRA, ABC’s Quantico
“Why should a woman have to pick between global domination and having the love of her life?”




JULIA LOUIS-DREYFUS, HBO’s Veep
“Go to the movies—how many good scripts are you really seeing out there? How many good, meaty roles are there for women within those scripts? Not tons of them. Right now there are so many [TV] shows on with strong, complicated, powerful, not-so-powerful, interesting human beings who are women. And I am thrilled to be playing one of them.”



TARAJI P. HENSON, FOX’s Empire
“It was very important to me that she not be sassy and neck-rollin’ and eye-bulgin’ and attitude all the time. Everything she does is coming from a place of fighting for her family. That’s why she’s not a caricature.”



VIOLA DAVIS, ABC’s How to Get Away With Murder
“We’ve been fed a whole slew of lies about women.” By TV standards, “if you are anywhere above a size 2, you’re not having sex. You don’t have sexual thoughts. You may not even have a vagina. And if you’re of a certain age, you’re off the table.”



OLIVIA WILDE, HBO’s Vinyl
"One day all these people were bowing down to me and throwing free clothes at me and telling me I was the best thing since sliced bread, and the next day...all of that disappeared. That was great for an 18-year-old to learn, and I will never again take the BS seriously.”



The Women in TV celebration, presented by Hearts on Fire Diamonds and Olay, will be held in Los Angeles.
