Netflix series ‘Delhi Crime’ nominated for Int’l Emmy Awards

MUMBAI: Netflix original series Delhi Crime has been nominations for India as part of 2020 International Emmy Awards.
International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences made the announcement while Amazon Prime’s Four More Shots and actor Arjun Mathur of Made in Heaven have secured nominations.
Directed by Indian-Canadian director Richie Mehta, Delhi Crime is based on the 2012 Delhi gangrape-murder which saw nationwide protests in India.
The show has been nominated in the best drama series category alongside Germany’s Charite, UK’s Criminal, and second season of El Jardin de Bronce (The Bronze Garden) from Argentina.
Actor Adil Hussain, who starred in the show, took to Twitter to share his excitement on the news. 

Created by Rangita Pritish Nandy, Four More Shots Please follows the life of four friends — played by Kirti Kulhari, Sayani Gupta, Maanvi Gagroo and Bani J — and their relationships, work-life conflicts, ambitions, and anxieties in a male-dominated society.
The series will compete in the best comedy category against Brazil’s Ninguem ta Olhando (Nobody’s Looking), UK’s Back to Life, and Israel’s Fifty.
“Some great news coming in… #FourMoreShotsPlease nominated for #InternationalEmmyAwards2020,” tweeted Gagroo. “OH HI. We EMMY NOMINATED,” wrote Bani J on Twitter.
Mathur has been nominated in the best performance by an actor category for Amazon’s Made in Heaven, which reflects the lives of upscale modern India narrated through the eyes of two wedding planners.
His fellow nominees are Billy Barratt in UK’s Responsible Child, Guido Caprino in Italian series 1994, and Raphael Logam in Brazil’s Impuros (Impure) season two.

Aparna Purohit, Head of India Originals, Amazon Prime Video, said it is an occasion of “immense pride and honour” for the streaming platform that two of its Indian originals series have been recognised at the International Emmy nominations.
This year there were 44 nominees across 11 categories and 20 countries. Bruce L Paisner, President & CEO of the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, congratulated all the nominees.
“We are especially proud to recognize and honor the world’s best storytellers, producers and performers. At a time of crisis where most of us have to stay home most of the time, television entertains us and provides a window to our world,” said Paisner in a statement.
Last year, Netflix’s India Original series Sacred Games, anthology film Lust Stories and Amazon Prime Video’s The Remix were nominated for International Emmy Awards.
Actor Radhika Apte was one of the nominees in the best actress category last year for her role in Lust Stories. She featured in the segment directed by Anurag Kashyap.
