International Emmys: UK’s ‘Vigil’ & ‘Sex Education’ Take Top Series Awards – Winners List

The United Kingdom swept the two marquee categories at the 50th anniversary International Emmy Awards, which here handed out Monday night in New York. Vigil took Best Drama Series, and Sex Education took the Comedy Series prize. See the list of winners in all 15 categories below.

The Brits dominated this year’s awards, scoring seven overall. France took two, the only other country with multiple wins. Australia’s Love on the Spectrum won for Non-Scripted Entertainment, and Iraq’s Lost Generation (France) took the Documentary prize.

Television around the world has really come of age,” International Academy President & CEO Bruce Paisner said. “What is especially gratifying on this 50th anniversary is seeing the number of countries globally which produce world-class television programs and personalities, and win Emmys.”

Emmy winner and Oscar nominee Ava DuVernay received the International Emmys’ Founders Award, which was presented by her When They See Us star Blair Underwood. The Directorate Award went to Miky Lee, Vice Chairwoman of CJ Group. It was presented by South Korean actor Song Joong-ki.

Penn & Teller’s Penn Jillette hosted the ceremony from the New York Hilton Midtown in Manhattan.

Here are the winners of the 50th International Emmys; note that all Russian programs were banned from consideration in the wake of that country’s invasion of Ukraine:
