Julie Walters - Julie Walters Nominated For International Emmy

Julie Walters has been nominated for an International Emmy for Best Actress.

The British star's performance of Northern Ireland Secretary of State Mo Mowlam - who died aged 55 from a brain tumour in 2005 - in 'Mo' will go up against Adriana Esteves in 'Songs of Betrayal', Noomi Rapace in 'Millennium' and Athena Chu Yan in 'A Wall-less World'.

'Mo' detailed the later years of the politician as she struggled to deal with her own medical issues and fight for peace in Northern Ireland, and has also been nominated in the best TV Movie/Mini-Series category.

In the Best Actor list, former 'Doctor Who' star Christopher Eccleston ('Accused') will fight Fabio Assuncao from 'Songs of Betrayal', Jang Hyuk's 'The Slave Hunters' and Michael Nyqvist in 'Millennium'.

Singapore series 'The Noose Season 3' has been nominated in the Best Comedy series, against 'Benidorm Bastards' from Belgium, Britain's 'Facejacker' - where members of the public are duped by fictional characters played by Kayvan Novak - and Brazilian series 'Breaking Up'.

In total, nominations span 20 countries including Chile, China, The Philippines, Singapore and Australia.

Winners will be announced at a ceremony at the Hilton New York Hotel on November 21.
