Sean Bean - Sean Bean And Sheridan Smith Leading Britain's International Emmy Awards Nominations

Actors Sean Bean and Sheridan Smith will be representing Britain at the 2013 International Emmy Awards after landing two of the nation's six nominations for the annual prizegiving.

The former Game of Thrones star has scored a best actor nod for his role as a cross-dresser in U.K. Tv show Accused, while the show itself, created by Jimmy MCGovern, is shortlisted for best drama series.

Smith has earned recognition as best actress for her performance in another drama, Mrs Biggs, which was based on the true story of great train robber Ronnie Biggs' wife, while political thriller Secret State (Tv Movie/Mini-Series), rock documentary Freddie Mercury: The Great Pretender (Arts Programming) and Chris O'Dowd's Moone Boy (Comedy) have also landed nominations for Britain.

Tv productions from Brazil landed six nominations too, including two top acting nods - Marcos Palmeira will compete for the Performance by an Actor title for Mandrake Especial, while Fernanda Montenegra's role in Sweet Mother has scored her a mention in the female equivalent.

France earned a total of three nods, while Angola and Uruguay are first-time nominees.

The International Emmy Awards, which recognises excellence in international television programming outside of the U.S., will take place in New York on 25 November (13).

As previously reported, director J.J. Abrams will be feted for his career achievements with the International Emmy Founders Award at the event. Previous honourees include Ryan Murphy and Simon Cowell.
