But the Emmys 2019 happened on 22 September & the Indian Cast & shows were nowhere seen in the nominations.

It turns out, the International Emmys, where Sacred Games and Lust Stories are nominated, are part of a different ceremony altogether. The event will take place on November 25 in New York where the winners will be announced.

Emmy Awards

The main ceremony, which concluded on 22 Sep, doesn’t have a category for international shows as such. To qualify for Primetime Emmys, a show should have been aired on American television within the eligibility window, which most years, is from June 1 to May 31.

And as for the shows that premiere on Netflix, Amazon, etc., according to the Emmy guidelines, “programs (and individual achievements within them) are eligible for nomination if they were originally aired by broadband to markets representing at least 50% or more of U.S. households.”

As of now, we’ll have to wait until November 25 to find out how India fares at the International Emmys where Sacred Games will compete against shows such as UK’s McMafia, Germany’s Bad Banks and Brazil’s 1 Contra Todos.

The ceremony, which took place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles last night saw Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag) and Bill Hader (Barry) take home the top prizes while The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, too, took home a bunch of awards.
