The International Emmy Awards were announced at a glittering in-person ceremony in New York, last evening (early morning India time). India had several hopeful contenders in the running to grab an Emmy. Sushmita Sen’s Aarya was nominated for the International Emmy Award for Best Drama, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, for Best Actor for Serious Men, and Vir Das for Best Comedy Program. Alas, Indian Originals/artists did not win in any of the three categories that they were nominated in.
However, the ones that did win the International Emmy Awards are well-deserved, no doubt. David Tennant has been winning rave reviews for his chilling turn as the serial killer Dennis Nielsen in Des. Likewise, Hayley Squires’ performance as British porn star Jolene Dollar in Adult Material is a masterclass in acting. Both stars unequivocally deserve their Best Performance wins.
