Delhi Crimes bags best Drama Series at the International Emmy Awards 2020

The Netflix show, Delhi Crime, has won big at the 48th International Emmy Awards this year. It bagged the Best Drama Series award against Germany's Charité 2 Season 2, UK's Criminal UK and Argentina's El Jardín de Bronce (The Bronze Garden) Season 2. On the other hand, another Indian show, Amazon Prime Video's Four More Shots Please, that was nominated for the Best Comedy Series, lost out. Made In Heaven's Arjun Mathur was nominated for the Best Actor award for the same Amazon Original, however, he too lost out against tough competitors.

Netflix's Delhi Crime, directed by Richie Mehta, sees Shefali Shah in the role of a Deputy Commissioner of Police, charged with nabbing the rapists of the horrific 2012 Delhi gang-rape and murder. Released in 2019, the show received rave reviews from the audience as well as the critics, even as it remains a very difficult show to watch. The 7-part series has a rating of 8.5 on IMDb.

The 48th International Emmy Awards, for the first time in the history, was held virtually due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. There was no red carpet or stage audience. Popular actor Richard Kind hosted the event live from an empty theatre in New York City.
