Nora Ephron was brilliant, witty, and original. A journalist, playwright, author, screenwriter, and producer, she lent her talents to directing as well, directing such hits as Sleepless in Seattle, and You’ve Got Mail, for which she also wrote the screenplays. She wrote screenplays for at least 12 other feature films, some of which she also directed and produced. She was nominated three times for an Academy Award, won numerous other awards, including the BAFTA award, and posthumously a Tony Award. In a Rolling Stones article from 1993, Ephron explains that the hardest part about being a female director is becoming one.
