After Emmys 2020 for the comic category concluded recently, the nominations for the best drama are revealed. In the list of nominations is Netflix's show Delhi Crime. The show that stars Adil Hussain, Shefali Shah and Rasika Duggal in the lead roles, is based upon the real-life incident of 2012 Delhi rape of a medical student.
The news was shared by Adil Hussain on his Twitter handle as he seemed to be surprised and overjoyed after hearing the news. He wrote, "As we speak. Just now I came to know that #DelhiCrime, that I am a part of, has been nominated for Best drama series at @iemmys International #emmyawards #Emmys."
Delhi Crime is also set for the second season. The first season was based upon Nirbhaya (the name given by the government), who was gang-raped in 2012 in a moving bus in the capital of India. The case stirred outrage and protests as people demanded justice for her. Last year, all five criminals were hanged to death.
As far as Emmys are concerned, they are the prestigious television awards of America awarding the top shows of comedy and drama category. Recently, Schitts Creek sweeped all the awards as being the best comedy show.
