The virtually held International Emmy Awards took place on November 23. TV, film and stage actor Richard Kind hosted the ceremony live from an empty theatre in New York City, with no live audience and red carpet. However, the night was eventual for India, as Shefali Shah-starrer Delhi Crime went on to bag the award for 'Best Drama Series'. Delhi Crime was pitted against German show Charité 2- Season 2, Criminal UK and Argentina's The Bronze Garden - Season 2.
Meanwhile, Four More Shots Please!, which was nominated for Best Comedy Series and actor Arjun Mathur who was nominated for Best Actor for his role in Made In Heaven, lost to other international performers. Last year Netflix's Lust Stories and Sacred Games were nominated respectively for The Best TV Movie/Mini-Series and The Best Drama Series award, but Delhi Crime is the first Indian show to win an International Emmy.
