Indian webseries that have won International awards: 2020 has been a different year. The rise of OTT platforms, the shutdown of theatres, and the postponing of a number of movies that earlier had this year as their release date.
A number of old movies and shows have been nominated this year for international awards and we are glad that our Indian shows and movies made it to the list. Here are some movies and shows that have been nominated this year.
Indian webseries that have won International awards
1. Delhi Crime
The web series Delhi Crime has won the Best Drama Series award at the 48th International Emmy Awards, held virtually this year owing to the ongoing Covid pandemic. The show becomes the first Indian program to win an International Emmy.
Writer-director Richie Mehta’s seven-episode series has Shefali Shah in the central role of DCP Vartika Chaturvedi and narrates the story of investigation in the aftermath of the heinous Delhi gang-rape of December 2012.
Delhi Crime has been nominated for the Best Series in Drama this year! This was expected from Sacred Games last year but couldn’t. We are so proud of the cast for their intriguing storyline based on a true, and the most ghastly story India has ever seen.
Malayali filmmaker Vinod Sam Peter’s Marathi film Puglya has won multiple awards at various international film festivals including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Music trophies at Los Angeles World Premiere Film Awards.
The movie swept top honors at the World Premiere Film Awards in California. The movie revolves around a pug and two boys, Rushab and Datta.
3. The Family Man
At the Asian Academy Creative Awards, Amazon Prime Video’s The Family Man bagged not one or two but four big awards.
The Family Man follows the story of Srikant Tiwari, who works as a senior analyst in the fictional Threat Analysis and Surveillance Cell (TASC), which is a part of the National Intelligence Agency (NIA) of India.
He is a married man with two kids, and the first season follows an investigation of a potential terrorist attack, while simultaneously following his slightly unsettled family life. The show is inspired by real-life newspaper articles.
4. Made in Heaven
The shows take us through the stories and awakenings of Tara (Sobhita Dhulipala) and Karan (Arjun Mathur), two friends who set up a wedding planning business—and the ups and downs they go through in their personal lives, as they strive to bring other’s happily ever after.
The show also touched upon pertinent topics without being overbearing, such as dowry, ageism in Indian matrimony, and LGBTQ+ rights.
5. Four More Shots Please
Four More Shots Please! will compete in the best comedy category against Brazil’s Ninguem ta Olhando (Nobody’s Looking), UK’s Back to Life, and Israel’s Fifty.
