  • Print


In a major win for an Indian web series at an international platform, Netflix’s Delhi Crime has bagged the Best Drama Series award at the 48th International Emmys. The show is a fictionalised retelling of the 2012 Delhi gang-rape and murder case, with Shefali Shah playing a deputy commissioner of police tasked with finding the culprits and dealing with the aftermath of the brutal crime. Director Richie Mehta dedicated the award to ‘all the women’ during the virtual ceremony.
“I dedicate this award to all the women who not just endure the violence that so many men inflict on them, but are then tasked to solve the problem. Finally, to the tireless mother, and her daughter. Not a day goes by when I don’t think about you both and what the world subjected you two to. And I hope none of us ever forget that,” he said in his speech.

Best Comedy Series: Ninguem Ta Olhando (Nobody’s Looking) (Brazil)
Best TV Movie/Mini-Series: Responsible Child (United Kingdom)
