As if a series about badass lady wrestlers wasn't groundbreaking enough on its own, GLOW's stunt coordinator, Shauna Duggins, took home the Emmy for Outstanding Stunt Coordination in a Comedy Series or Variety Program -- the first woman in the history of the award to do so.

Duggins is a prolific performer in the stunt world, having previously worked as Jennifer Garner's stunt double on Aliasand as Melissa Benoist's double on the first season of Supergirl. Duggins had previously been the first woman to be nominated for the Emmy, in 2006, for her work on Alias. She finally took home the Emmy on Saturday, beating out the coordinators of Cobra Kai and Brooklyn Nine-Nine for the honor.

GLOW itself also won an Emmy for Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Program (Half Hour or Less) and, as Duggins pointed out, "This show, in general, breaks the mold for women."

The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards will air Monday, Sept. 17 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on NBC.
