International Emmy Award Nominations Unveiled

The International Emmys are living up to their name, with a globe-spanning set of nominees announced Thursday for this year’s awards. Endemol Shine, HBO, Fox and Sony all scored noms, while Amazon and Netflix landed just one apiece, a modest showing given their recent run at awards shows and their increasing number of international originals.

In the best actor category, Julio Andrade is nominated for Fox Networks Latin American drama “One Against All,” Billy Campbell for Canadian-produced “Cardinal,” Lars Mikkelsen for Scandi series “Ride Upon the Storm,” and Tolga Saritas for Turkish series “Soz.” The best actress noms include Thuso Mbedu for South African series “Is’thunzi” and Emily Watson in U.K.-produced “Apple Tree Yard.”

Netflix’s single nomination comes in the best comedy category for its Mexican show “Club of Crows.” Amazon’s is in the drama category, for its Indian cricket-themed series “Inside Edge.” It will go up against buzzy Spanish series “Money Heist,” Brazil-produced “One Against All,” and “Urban Myths,” which was on Sky in the U.K.

Telemundo recorded an unprecedented clean sweep in the non-English-language U.S. primetime category with the network and its cable channel Universo scoring all four nominations.

The unscripted award noms feature two foodie formats, setting up a cook-off between “Top Chef Mexico” and “MasterChef Australia.”

“Looking at the diversity and geographic spread of this year’s nominations across all continents and platforms, it is clear that excellence in television is a global phenomenon, which transcends culture and language,” said Bruce L. Paisner, President and CEO of the International Academy.

Writer and producer Greg Berlanti and Endemol Shine boss Sophie Turner Laing will receive special awards at the International Emmy Awards ceremony, which will be held at the Hilton New York on Nov. 19.
