International Emmys: ‘Sex Education,’ Dougray Scott and Lou de Laage Among Winners

Sex Education, Dougray Scott and Lou de Laage were among the winners at the 2022 International Emmy Awards.

The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced the winners during Monday’s ceremony in New York City at the New York Hilton Midtown Hotel.

Sex education won the award for best comedy. Other shows that were awarded were Vigil , a drama series, and Love On The Spectrum ‘s Season 2 for nonscripted entertainment. Scott won the best acting performance, while De Laage won the actress category.

Miky Lee, vice-chairwoman of CJ Group was awarded the International Emmy Directorate Award. Song Joong-ki, a South Korean actor, presented the award to her.

Lee stated that she was proud to be a Korean and delighted that her content has been recognized. However, she shared the joy with the wider global community during her acceptance speech. “I’ve heard so many people say that Korean content has given them hope that everyone can be a part of global pop culture. I want to continue bridging people around the world. Genuine stories don’t have any barriers. I often forget that subtitles are available for Nordic and German TV shows. When it comes to human interaction, language doesn’t really matter anymore once we have been connected. I will continue my journey to be the bridge. Let’s continue to march together and connect more people every day. It’s an honor to be awarded this award tonight.

Ava DuVernay received the International Emmy Founders Award presented by Benjamin Bratt and Blair Underwood. “The way we watch television has changed a lot. DuVernay stated that what hasn’t changed over 100 decades is the power of the medium. “Television, particularly international television, is a window into the world that connects people from all walks of life. It also allows me to see images on film from places I’m not able to. Compton doesn’t have any art houses. Selma doesn’t have independent movie theatres. This is because of the cinema segregation, where you can’t find images of others. Television opens up a world of possibilities, expanding our understanding of each other and ourselves. It is vitally important.

The International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences presented Emmys for television creators and performers in eight countries, including the U.K. South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Netherlands and South Korea. Penn & Teller’s Penn Jillette hosted this ceremony.
