‘The Missing,’ ‘Happy Valley,’ ‘Gomorrah,’ ‘Lilyhammer’ Win Monte Carlo TV Fest’s Kudos

“The Missing” took two Golden Nymph awards including best miniseries at the 55th Monte Carlo TV Festival, which wrapped on June 18.

The Golden-Globe nominated U.K. mini-skein, produced by New Pictures and Company Pictures, also earned its female lead Frances O’Connor a best actress nod. Directed by Tom Shankland, “The Missing” centers around a couple whose 5-year-old son disappears during a trip to France.

The miniseries jury, presided over by Ron Perlman, handed the best actor kudos to Anthony Hayes for the Australian show “Secrets & Lies,” which is produced by Hoodlum. Hayes plays a man who finds the body of a young boy while jogging and becomes the prime suspect for the murder.

“Lilyhammer” dominated the comedy section, nabbing a pair of Golden Nymphs awards for best European series and best actor for Steven Van Zandt, who stars as a retired New York mobster who hides in a rural Norwegian town. Greg Poehler’s “Welcome to Sweden” won best international comedy series, while Belen Rueda won best actress in a comedy. The show follows a New York accountant who follows his girlfriend back to her native Sweden.

Meanwhile, “Gomorrah,” an adaptation of Roberto Saviano’s exposé of the Neapolitan mob, won best international series in the drama category as well as actor for Marco D’Armore. BAFTA-winning “Happy Valley” took two kudos for best European drama and actress for Sarah Lancashire, who plays a police sergeant who comes face to face with the man who destroyed her family.

Julian Farino’s “Marvellous” won all three kudos in the TV film category: Best TV movie, actress for Gemma Jones and actor for Toby Jones. The inspirational, BAFTA-winning film centers on the life of Neil Baldwin, who experienced learning difficulties and overcame early setbacks to become an accomplished adult.
