Álex Pina is feeling the Emmy love…
The winners of the 46th annual International Emmy Awards have been revealed, with the 48-year-old Spanish television producer/writer’s La casa de papel (Money Heist), taking home the prize for Best Drama.
The hit Spanish heist television series, created by Pina, revolves about a long-prepared, multiple-day assault on the Royal Mint of Spain.
The series, which premiered in May 2017 on Spanish network Antena 3, was initially intended as a limited series. Antena 3 distributed the first two parts of the series in Spain, before the series was acquired by Netflix in late 2017, who edited and re-released the two parts worldwide, and will release a new, third part in 2019.
La casa de papel stars Úrsula Corberó, Itziar Ituño, Álvaro Morte, Paco Tous, Pedro Alonso, and Alba Flores.
The Best Non-English U.S. Primetime Program prize went to NBC Universo’s El Vato. The second season of the series was produced byNBC Universo, Endemol Shine Boomdog and NBCU Telemundo.
The series centers on Regional Mexican singer El Vato (portrayed by El Dasa)and his friends as they struggle to succeed in the enticing but deceptive music world in Los Angeles, California.
This year, there were 44 nominees across 11 categories and 20 countries including Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Denmark, Germany, India, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom & the United States.
The International Emmy Awards were hosted by comedian and The Problem with Apu producer Hari Kondabolu at the New York Hilton.
