Turns out, big-name women no longer hesitate when it comes to television, where richer parts await. In recent years, Amazon’s “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” and “Veep” all cleaned up at the Emmys. Since 2003, just one film with a woman as the lead — “The Shape of Water” — took home the best picture Oscar, but Sally Hawkins’ character in the Guillermo del Toro-directed movie is mute.

At least on television, women are much more likely to be heard.
