The 47th International Emmy Awards concluded at Hilton Hotel in New York. The who’s who of the entertainment industry from all across the world gathered to celebrate and honour the best of their industry. India alone was nominated in as many as four categories including Best Actress, Best Drama Series, Best Non-Scripted Entertainment, and Best TV Movie/ Mini-Series. However, seems like the trophy is still a little far away as we lost out in all four categories. Not an entire disappointment though! India’s Nawazuddin Siddiqui appeared on cloud nine and posed with the trophy after his web-series McMafia won the award for the Best Drama Series.
Apart from Nawazuddin, many other Indian stars were present at the prestigious award ceremony. The list included the names of Karan Johar, Zoya Akhtar, Radhika Apte, Kubbra Sait, Vikramaditya Motwane, Anurag Kashyap, Payal Mathur Bhagat, Dibaker Bannerjee, Ronnie Screwvala and Ashi Dua among others.

While it was sure a disappointment to see India not bagging an award at the 47th International Emmys, it was also a proud moment to see such great content representing the country at a global level. Both Sacred Games and Lust Stories were strong contenders in their respective categories as they reflected a part of Indian culture and society in their content. Radhika has always been a stellar performer and never failed to impress the audience with her acting skills. She walked the red carpet with elan wearing that illusion number and completely stole the show. Congratulations to all the nominees!
