Hungary Vies for International Emmy in Two Categories
MTI-Hungary Today 2019.11.25.
Hungary’s two nominations for the International Emmy Award this year are an acknowledgement of the country’s entire film industry, the government commissioner for advancing the sector said on Sunday, after arriving in New York ahead of the awards ceremony.
Csaba Káel told MTI by phone it is the first time that a made-for-television film from Hungary has been nominated for the award bestowed by the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (IATAS).
“Now they’ve really noticed us, they’ve discovered the Hungarians in this field, too,” he said.
“Trezor”, a TV film directed by Péter Bergendy, has been nominated for an International Emmy in the TV movie/mini-series category, while Marina Gera has been nominated for the Best Performance by an Actress award for her role in “Eternal Winter“, directed by Attila Szász.
