Making a mark on a global platform, Netflix’s India Original series “Delhi Crime”, Amazon Prime Video’s “Four More Shots Please!” and actor Arjun Mathur of “Made in Heave” secured nominations for India as part of 2020 International Emmy Awards, the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced on Thursday.
Indian-Canadian director Richie Mehta’s “Delhi Crime” is based on the 2012 Delhi gangrape-murder, which saw nationwide protests leading to a change in India’s rape laws.
The show has been nominated in the best drama series category alongside Germany’s “Charite” season two, UK’s “Criminal”, and second season of “El Jardin de Bronce” (The Bronze Garden)” from Argentina.
While Amazon Original Series ‘Four More Shots Please!’, produced by Pritish Nandy Communications, has bagged a nomination in the ‘Best Comedy Series’ category, actor Arjun Mathur has received the nomination in the category of ‘Best Performance by an Actor’ for his character of Karan in the show ‘Made in Heaven’ produced by Tiger Baby and Excel Media and Entertainment.
“We are thrilled with the nominations and are delighted to share this moment with Pritish Nandy Communications, Tiger Baby and Excel Media and Entertainment,” said Aparna Purohit, Head of India Originals, Amazon Prime Video.
Produced by Pritish Nandy Communications, ‘Four More Shots Please!’ is the only Indian title in the Best Comedy Series category and Arjun Mathur is also the only Indian artist to compete in the category of Best Performance by an Actor.
The series will compete in the best comedy category against Brazil’s “Ninguem ta Olhando (Nobody’s Looking)”, UK’s “Back to Life”, and Israel’s “Fifty“.
Last year, Netflix’s India Original series “Sacred Games”, anthology film “Lust Stories” and Amazon Prime Video’s “The Remix” were nominated for International Emmy Awards.
