Awards Round Up 2017
As Liverpool awaits Emmy Awards news from New York, let’s recap this year’s awards for Film & TV in the city.
The International Emmy Awards is tonight and local filmmakers, LA Productions’ Reg has been shortlisted in the Best TV Movie/Mini Series category, which aired on BBC One last year.
The International Emmys is the highest accolade in television content produced and aired outside of the US. As the only UK nomination in their category, the Kirkdale-based LA Productions international awards bring international competition. LA Productions face-off against Globo (Brazil), Scarlett Production (France) & DCTV (Japan), with their global hits Alemão: Both Sides of the Operation, Don’t Leave Me, and Tokyo Trial.
LA Productions’ producers Colin McKeown and Donna Molloy will be attending the awards ceremony at the Hilton in New York tonight! This isn’t the first nomination LA Productions have picked up with Reg, as the feature-length was nominated for Best TV Movie at the international Rose d’Or awards in August.
Written by Jimmy McGovern and Robert Pugh, starring Academy Award-nominee, Tim Roth (Pulp Fiction, The Incredible Hulk, Hateful Eight), Reg, is based on the true story of Reg Keys, the father of one of six murdered Royal Military Policemen, who took on the Prime Minister over Britain’s participation in the Iraq War.
