South Africa rakes in 3 Emmy nominations! – Sirius Eye Entertainment

South Africa rakes in 3 Emmy nominations!

Africa is shining with three nominations for the 2015 International Emmy Awards with M-Net’s (DStv 101) MasterChef South Africa, StarSat’s Puppet Nation ZA and the local documentary Miners Shot Down all nominated.

SA forms part of only 19 countries that cracked the nod this year. The nominees in the 10 categories were announced on Monday night by the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Besides South Africa, Angola is the only other African country to make the cut with its telenovela Jikulumessu securing a nod.

The winners will be announced in New York on 23 November at the Hilton New York hotel.

M-Net’s MasterChef South Africa is nominated in the reality, or so called “non-scripted” category and is produced by Quizzical Pictures and Lucky Bean Media. It’s the second time that MasterChef SA gets an international Emmy nomination after it also snagged one in 2013.

Puppet Nation ZA (previously called ZA News), produced by Both Worlds was nominated in the comedy category.

After getting 11 nominations, Puppet Nation ZA won 7 Golden Horn trophies earlier this year at the South African Film and Television Awards (Saftas) in May.

The harrowing documentary Miners Shot Down – the Uhuru Productions documentary about the Marikana Massacre produced by filmmaker Rehad Desai – scored a nomination in the documentary category.

The SABC and e.tv have so far refused to broadcast Miners Shot Down but it has been shown on the community TV station Cape Town TV in July and Al Jazeera (DStv 406 / StarSat 257).

In August Rehad Desai urged for Miners Shot Down to be broadcast on e.tv and the SABC saying that the film “has become an ever-present symbol of the average South African’s struggle to survive in this country”.

“Every year, the international television community competes to be recognised for excellence on the International Emmy’s global stage,” says Bruce L. Paisner, the president and CEO of the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

Earlier this year Debora Patta was nominated for a news Emmy for her work as the Africa correspondent for the American TV network CBS on their show, CBS Evening News.

  14. When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the
    same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Appreciate it!
