Washington [US], September 23 (ANI): Nominations for the 2021 International Emmy Awards were announced on Thursday with 44 nominees across 11 categories, spanning a record number of 24 countries.
Out of the lot, actors Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vir Das along with Sushmita Sen-starrer series 'Aarya' bagged nominations for India. David Tennant, French comedy 'Call My Agent', and Israeli drama Tehran was also nominated at the International Emmy Awards this year by the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
In the Best Comedy category, Vir, whose standup 'Vir Das: For India' got nominated alongside the likes of 'Call My Agent Season 4', 'Motherland Christmas Special' and 'Promesas De Campana', spoke about this exciting development.
"I'm so honoured to be nominated, but I'm just so happy it's for a show about my culture, and my people and how funny we are. The special was my love letter to India and this is just unbelievable," he said.
Tennant got nominated for Best Performance from an Actor for his starring role in ITV crime series 'Des' while 'Tehran' is up in the Drama Series category. Actor Menna Shalaby has earned her first-ever Emmy nomination for her performance in the crime mini-series 'Every Week Has A Friday'.
Nawazuddin has been nominated in the Best Actor category for his role in 'Serious Men', a satirical drama film based on Manu Joseph's book of the same name. Meanwhile, the Sushmita Sen-led crime drama web series 'Aarya' has been nominated in the Best Drama Series category.
"We are so proud of our Nominees and the record-breaking number of countries," said International Academy President and CEO Bruce Paisner in a statement. He added, "To those who feared the pandemic would slow down TV production around the world, this is your answer."
