Playing 'Transparent' Creator Jill Soloway on Her Sweet and 'Supportive' Friendship With Caitlyn Jenner!

Transparent creator and executive producer Jill Soloway gave an incredibly moving speech when she won the Emmy for Best Directing for a Comedy on Sunday night.

So when ET caught up with the showrunner backstage after her big win, we asked Soloway whom she is looking forward to sharing her victory with. Her answer? Caitlyn Jenner.

"We text," Soloway spilled to Nancy O'Dell. "I asked her if she was coming to the after party, she said, 'No.' She was racing cars this weekend."

Jenner, whose hit E! series, I Am Cait, is rumored to be returning for a second season in Spring 2016, was "thrilled" when she first heard the news of Transparent's multiple Emmy nominations.

"A lot of the women who are on I Am Cait are associated with our show, "Soloway said. "It's a very small community in Los Angeles, and we're all part of the same group. We all love each other and support each other."

In fact, Soloway now considers Jenner to be a member of her family. "You know when you're a little kid and you're trying to cross the street, and it's really busy, and everybody holds hands and crosses the street together? That's what it's like with the trans community. We're all holding hands, we're all supporting each other -- we support Caitlyn, she supports us, and we're all crossing the street together."
