International Emmy Awards 2019: India fails to open an account, despite efforts

The International Emmy Awards 2019 was announced today in New York. India had cause for excitement as Netflix anthology Lust Stories was nominated for two International Emmys — Best TV Movie/Mini-Series and Best Actress for Radhika Apte — and Sacred Games was nominated under the Best Drama Series. 

But the awards for Best Mini-Series was secured by Safe Harbour and the Hungarian actor Marina Gera bagged the Best Actress award for her performance in Orok Tel. Sacred Games also lost to McMafia, the British crime drama, that stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui in an important role. 

Interestingly, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap and actors Radhika Apte and Nawazuddin Siddiqui were part of both the Indian projects that secured nominations. Anurag helmed Sacred Games and a segment of Lust Stories, while Radhika starred in both projects. 

Other Indian productions to get a nod included The Remix and Witness: India's Forbidden Love, which were shortlisted for Best Non-Scripted Entertainment and Best Documentary, respectively. But the awards were won by The Real Full Monty: Ladies' Night and Bellingcat - Truth In A Post-Truth World.

Despite failing to open an account this year, the representatives of the Indian entertainment industry seem thrilled and happy about getting a step closer to winning. Pictures of Karan Johar and Anurag Kashyap with Game Of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss, who won the special Founders Award, and the red carpet photos of a gleeful Radhika Apte and Kubra Sait have gone viral on social media.
