Murdoch bestows Founders Award on Cowell

There were several firsts at the Intl. Emmys in New York on Monday night as a quartet of countries made history with their wins.

Portugal’s “My Love” won the telenovela prize, while Israel nabbed the comedy trophy for “Traffic Light” (a buddy ensembler that has been adapted by Fox as a midseason series, “Mixed Signals”).

Korea took the docu trophy for “Mom and the Red Bean Cake,” and Romania won the arts programming category for “The World According to Ion B.” After nine noms, Argentina won in the unscripted category with “CQC.”

Perennial fave Britain swept the performance categories as Helena Bonham Carter took the actress kudo for her turn as children’s author Enid Blyton in the mini “Enid.” Bob Hoskins drew the actor trophy for “The Street,” which revolves around the lives of six families in Manchester. Produced by ITV Studios for the Beeb, “Street” also won for drama series.

Aardman Animations’ “Shaun the Sheep” took the kidvid prize.

Rupert Murdoch made a surprise appearance to bestow the Intl. Emmys Founders Award on Simon Cowell. The Directorate Award was presented by Jimmy Fallon and Alec Baldwin to “Saturday Night Live” creator Lorne Michaels.
