Over-40 women are in the spotlight with 41 Emmy nominations for their work in front of the camera.  This is an incredible statistic that suggests the television industry is conquering Hollywood’s ageism stigma faster than the movie industry.

Older actresses tend to get replaced by younger actresses or aren’t considered at all for many roles– just ask television celeb Kate Thornton. Yet, it appears that when women over 40 *do* get offered a role, they crush it.

 

So, here’s a list of these over-40 women nominees.  Learn more about them and style, beauty and wellness for women over 40 in the September issue of SheSpark.
