Brits Triumph At International Emmys

British TV came out top at the International Emmy Awards in New York last night (20NOV06), scooping a staggering six of the nine programming prizes. Foul-mouthed chef GORDON RAMSAY was given something to smile about when cooking show RAMSAY'S KITCHEN NIGHTMARES won in the non-scripted entertainment category while SUGAR RUSH, a British series about a lesbian schoolgirl, won in the children/young people category. The BBC's LIFE ON MARS was named Best Drama while LITTLE BRITAIN was hailed Best Comedy for the third year running. Other UK wins saw SEXY BEAST star RAY WINSTONE grab the Best Actor prize for his performance as a long-suffering private eye in VINCENT but the female category went to MARYAM HASSOUNI for playing a Palestinian terrorist in the Dutch TV movie OFFERS. A French made-for-TV movie NUIT NOIRE nabbed the top prize for TV movie or mini-series. The star-studded ceremony at the New York Hilton Hotel was hosted by Irish comedian and talk-show host GRAHAM NORTON while KATIE COURIC, SUSAN SARANDON and CHRISTIANE AMANPOUR were among the presenters.
