Chicago-borne playwright and director Jill Soloway won an Emmy for Best Directing for a Comedy Series last night for her Amazon show "Transparent," which is based on her experiences as the child of a transgender parent. She dedicated the award to her "Moppa" and said the country currently has "a trans civil rights problem."
