Emmy-winning “Girls” gets Royal Television Society award

PanARMENIAN.Net - HBO's Golden Globe- and Emmy-winning show Girls, created by and starring Lena Dunham, secured this year's Royal Television Society international TV program award Tuesday, March 19, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The program faced down strong competition for the nod from another multi-Golden Globe winner, spy thriller Homeland (season one), and the BAFTA TV-winning Danish political drama Borgen.

Sean Bean secured the evening's best actor (male) award for his turn in Accused II while his co-star Olivia Coleman picked up the best actor (female) nod for her turn in the drama.

Bean emerged ahead of the challenges of Lennie James (Line of Duty) and Oliver Lansley (Best Possible Taste: The Kenny Everett Story) while Coleman saw off Anne Marie Duff, who also worked in Accused II, and Sheridan Smith for her turn in Mrs Biggs.

Sherlock, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the detective and Martin Freeman as his sidekick Doctor Watson, saw off stiff competition from Call the Midwife and Line of Duty to secure the evening's best drama series gong.

Good Cop, another show for the BBC, won the best drama serial plaudit, beating the ratings-winner Parade's End and Room At The Top to the podium.
