See Winners

“Mujeres asesinas” (Women Assassins) swept the 36th annual Martin Fierro awards ceremony for 2005 TV productions on Monday.

The fictional take on real-life murders won the Golden Martin Fierro for program as well as kudos for drama actress, director, miniseries and screenplay.

This helped second-ranked Artear-Canal 13, a unit of Argentine media conglom Grupo Clarin, dominate the event with 17 awards out of 66 nominations. It also won for production of “La noche del 10” (The Night of the 10), former soccer great Diego Maradona’s hit entertainment show, and took the culture, humor, general interest, journalism and sports categories.

No. 1 net Telefe (Spain’s Telefonica) came in second, taking seven of 21 noms, including comedy for its remake of “Married … With Children” and telenovela for “Amor en custodia” (Love in Custody), the most-watched show of its genre last year.

Third-ranked Canal 9 (Daniel Hadad) tied for second with seven awards, trailed by America TV (Carlos Avila, Francisco De Narvaez) with three. Pubcaster Canal 7 nabbed one.

Organized by the Argentine Assn. of Television & Radio Journalists, fete is seen as an indicator of hot programs and indie production houses for foreign buyers.

Pol-ka came away a big winner. The outfit produced “Assassins” and other winners including “Sin codigo” (No Code), “Botines” and “Hombres de honor” (Men of Honor). Adrian Suar, a thesp turned director-producer who doubles as programming manager of Canal 13, runs the outfit, which produces primarily for that broadcaster.

Telefe’s production division, Telefe Contenidos, went away with wins for “Married … With Children” and “Amor en custodia.”

The annual kudos fete, held in the ritzy old docks district, aired on Canal 9, with more than 960 attendees making their way down the red carpet for the five-hour event. It dominated the night, with 38 rating points.
