International Emmy Awards: U.S. Spanish-Language Programs Nab First Nominations

Telemundo and Nat Geo Mundo have nabbed the first nominations for International Emmy Awards in the newly created category for U.S.-produced non-English programs.

Telemundo received three noms for hit telenovelas: “Pasion Prohibida,” “La Patrona” and “El Señor de los Cielos.” The fourth nom in the category went to Nat Geo Mundo’s “Temple de Acero,” a documentary about Hispanic veterans of U.S. military service. (Univision, the dominant Spanish-lingo outlet, did not enter any programs for consideration.)

In other International Emmy heats, Olivia Colman of ITV’s “Broadchurch” (pictured) earned a nom for lead actress. Channel 4 drama “Utopia,” which is in the midst of a remake by David Fincher for HBO, landed a drama series bid.

In all, the nominations handed out by the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences cover programs 18 countries.

The ceremony will be held Nov. 24 at the Hilton New York. “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner will receive the org’s Founders Award. Roberto Marinho Irineu, CEO-president of Brazil’s Globo Organization will receive the Directorate Award.
