Lisa Nishimura

The competition for awards has never been more fierce given the volume of content that’s out there, so Nishimura can be especially proud Netflix special “John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous at Radio City” won an Emmy for outstanding writing in a comedy special this year. Nishimura also played a key role in “Icarus” earning the 2018 Oscar for documentary film, and had a hand in numerous other Netflix accolades. But Nishimura’s passion goes well beyond golden statuettes. She wants content from storytellers of all backgrounds to come to Netflix so that unique narratives from around the world can be heard.
