Simon Cowell To Get Special Emmy

Simon Cowell is to receive a special prize at this year's 38th International Emmy Awards.

The music mogul will be presented with the International Emmy Founders Award for his work on various TV talent shows, including 'American Idol' and 'America's Got Talent'.

Other nominees include Helena Bonham Carter who has been nominated in the Best Performance By An Actress category for her portrayal of children's author Enid Blyton in the biopic 'Enid', while Bob Hoskins is up for Best Performance By An Actor for his role as a reformed alcoholic in 'The Street'.

Nominations span 15 countries - Argentina, Brazil, Denmark, Germany, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Portugal, Romania, South Africa, South Korea, Thailand, The Philippines, The Netherlands and the UK - and the various prizes recognise excellence by individual stars and specific TV programming such as documentaries, comedy shows and drama series.

'Saturday Night Live' creator Lorne Michaels - who helped launch the careers of stars such as Tina Fey and Will Ferrell on the US comedy sketch show - is to be presented with the 2010 International Emmy Directorate Award.

Bruce Paisner, President of The International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, said: "We congratulate the 2010 nominees for their outstanding achievements as their programmes and performances enter into television history."

Former 'Beverly Hills, 90210' star Jason Priestley will host the ceremony in New York on November 22.
