Many launched into debates and discussions surrounding the subject, as one fan commented: "Warms my heart when women receive recognition, as they should!"

A third also added: "I've done intimate scenes on-stage, and I WISH we had an intimacy coordinator. I felt like it was all up to me, but that I couldn't say much because I didn't want to be giving my scene partner 'notes.' So, stuff goes unsaid. Actors don't always feel safe. The work suffers."
