International Emmy Awards - Braquo wins Best Drama Series

On Monday, Regis Philbin hosted the 40th International Emmy Awards at the New York Hilton.

Season 2 of Braquo (or, as Victor Garber would say, 'Brackwoe' (see below)) won the International Emmy Award for best drama series. The four other nominees in the category were The Slap (Australia), The Kitchen Musical (Singapore) and ICAC Investigators 2011 (Hong Kong).

Claude Chelli, head of Capa Drama (producing company), accepted the prize alongside Abdel Raouf Dafri (here they are), writer of all 8 episodes of season 2 and also the upcoming third and final season, which will start filming in early 2013, as Canal+ announced in the bulletin reporting the Emmy win.

Rodophe Belmer, CEO of Canal+, said that "it's encouraging us to continue producing ambitious French programs that can also have international prospects."

Fellow Canal+ drama series Engrenages (Spiral) had been nominated for Best Drama Series for each of its first three seasons in 2007, 2009 & 2011 but didn't win.

Season 3 is coming in Fall 2013 and both seasons 1 & 2 of Braquo (8+8 episodes) are available on DVD & Blu-ray (with English subtitles). A remake for a US cable channel is also in the works.

Having a French drama win is a departure from the trend consisting in having British-winning series — the previous six Best Drama series winners are Life on Mars (for both seasons 1 & 2 in 2006 & 2008), The Street (for both seasons 2 & 3 in 2007 & 2010), and Accused (season 1 won in last year's ceremony), with one foreign-language series managing to win the trophy (Danish crime series Livvagterne, aka The Protectors, won in 2009).

Same for actors, actually, with solely British actors and actresses rewarded since 2006 and 2008, respectively — Thierry Frémont (France) in 2005 and Muriel Robin (France) in 2007 were the last non-British actors to have won... until this year with Argentinian actors Darío Grandinetti & Cristina Banegas.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.
