The Monte Carlo TV Festival has unveiled the nominees for its 57th Golden Nymph Awards. There is a varied range of international fare in the mix, and also a crop of recognizable names — some of which haven’t found big awards attention domestically.
Notably, it’s interesting to see the CW’s No Tomorrow, which did only 13 episodes and is facing cancellation, nominated in the Comedy Series category. So is NBC’s Superstore, now in its 3rd season, but with no major mentions at home.
Other familiar names that are getting a showcase in the principality include Hulu’s 11.22.63 in the Long Fiction category; and ITV/Masterpiece’s BAFTA-nominated Victoria; Sky/HBO/Canal+ series The Young Pope; Showtime’s Billions; and Sweden’s Midnight Sun all in the Drama race.
Originally created by Prince Rainier III of Monaco, and now under the Honorary Presidency of his son, Prince Albert II, the festival presents a wide selection of television from around the world. Submissions for the 2017 event were significantly up on last year, with entries from over 50 countries.
The Monte Carlo Fest runs from June 16-20 with the Golden Nymph Awards presented by Prince Albert on closing night.
