In a significant win for an Indian web series at a international platform, Netflix’s Delhi Crime has sacked the Best Drama Series grant at the 48th International Emmys. The show is a fictionalized retelling of the 2012 Delhi assault and murder case, with Shefali Shah playing an appointee chief of police entrusted with finding the guilty parties and managing the outcome of the merciless wrongdoing.
Chief Richie Mehta committed the honor to ‘all the women’ during the virtual function. “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.
An elated Shefali Shah, who played the cop in the show, common a clasp from the honor show where she can be heard saying ‘goodness my God’.
India had likewise stowed designations in the Best Actor class (Arjun Mathur, Made in Heaven) and Best Comedy arrangement (Four More Shots Please). The honors went to entertainer Billy Barratt for Responsible Child and Ninguem Ta Olhando (Nobody’s Looking) individually.
In other significant classes, Glenda Jackson won the Best Actress Award for Elizabeth Is Missing. Vertige De La Chute (Ressaca) from France won the Best Arts Programming grant while Responsible Child sacked the Best Mini-Series Award. The honors were facilitated by Richard Kind from an unfilled auditorium in New York City, given the Covid pandemic.
