Fifteen productions from Argentina, Colombia, Brazil and the US Hispanic stand out among the 44 finalists for the 2020 International Emmy Awards, with titles from HBO LatAm, Disney, Telemundo, Univision, Globo, Record, Caracol, Telefe, Flow and Netflix.
The International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences announced the nominations for the 2020 International Emmy Awards, which will reward the best international television broadcast throughout 2019.
The winners will be announced at a ceremony produced in New York on Monday, November 23, 2020. All details will be announced in October.
“Congratulations to all the nominees! We are especially proud to recognize and honor the best storytellers, producers and performers in the world,” said Bruce L. Paisner, president and CEO of the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
“In a time of crisis in which most of us have to stay at home most of the time, television entertains us and opens a window to our world,” he added.

And this edition celebrates the great moment that Latin television is experiencing, with a total of 15 nominations from the region: 7 from Brazil, 4 from the US Hispanic, 3 from Argentina and 1 from Colombia.
Noteworthy is the nomination of The Bronze Garden, in its second season, in the competitive Drama Series category.
