Gordon was nominated for best original screenplay with her co-writer and husband Kumail Nanjiani for the movie based on the story about the early days of their romance.

Jill Soloway (Transparent) is producing with Andrea Sperling, while Carly Kahane executive produces.

Gordon and Nanjiani have also received nominations for the Independent Spirit Awards and from the Writer’s Guild.

The Big Sick was released by Amazon Studios, which means it will likely be available for streaming by the studio.
