Monica Lewin­sky pre­sented the Cre­ate NSW An­nette Keller­man Award to co­me­dian Han­nah Gadsby, who ref­er­enced the anti-bul­ly­ing cru­sader in her Net­flix spe­cial “Nanette.” “Be­cause of Han­nah and ‘Nanette,’ it has been em­pow­er­ing for peo­ple around the world to see that re­claim­ing your nar­ra­tive, fight­ing back and call­ing out sex­ism and ho­mo­pho­bia can ac­tu­ally con­trib­ute tto your suc­cess rather than hurt your pro­fes­sional ca­reer,” Lewin­sky said. “For me, there was spe­cial mean­ing iin the show. Han­nah re­minded peo­ple that I per­son­ally had been, in the past and some­times still in present day, a punch­line.”
