Jackson added to her BAFTA leading actress win for BBC TV movie “Elizabeth is Missing,” while Barratt won for another BBC TV movie, “Responsible Child,” which also won the TV movie/mini-series category.
Elsewhere, “Vertige de la Chute” (Ressaca) won the arts programming category, “Old People’s Home for 4 Year Olds” won non-scripted entertainment, and “Órfãos Da Terra” (Orphans of a Nation) won the telenovela category.
“Once again, the International Emmy winners demonstrate the universal power of great television, which brings us together and breaks down cultural boundaries and pandemic induced limitations,” said International Academy president and CEO Bruce Paisner. “Although we miss our annual gala in New York, we are proud to bring these programs and performances to our global stage, and we congratulate the winners on their outstanding achievement.”
