Black Mirror wins at the International Emmy Awards

by -

Charlie Brooker’s Black Mirror has won the best TV mini-series prize at this year’s International Emmy Awards.

The drama, shown in the UK on Channel 4, beat nominations from France, Brazil and Japan to win the category.

Brooker’s drama was one of only two wins for the UK at the American awards, which recognise the best programmes produced and initially aired outside the US.

The other win was for the programme Terry Pratchett – Choosing to Die, which won in the documentary section.

The BBC’s Absolutely Fabulous and Sky’s Spy were nominated in the comedy category but lost out to The Invisible Woman, a programme from Brazil.

Other UK nominees included Joanna Vanderham, who was up for best performance by an actress for her performance in The Runaway on Sky, and Jason Isaacs, who received a nod for Case Histories.
