NEW YORK: Britain led at the International Emmy Awards Monday, with three trophies going to British television series at the ceremony honoring the best TV programming outside the United States.

“Utopia,” the conspiracy series created by Britain’s Dennis Kelly and directed by Marc Munden took home the best drama Emmy, while the best actor trophy went to Stephen Dillane for his role as Karl Roebuck in “Tunnel,” the Canal+ series that was also nominated for best drama.

“Educating Yorkshire,” a documentary program directed by David Brindley and narrated by David Clews about life in a school in northern Britain, took home the award for non-scripted entertainment.

British programs were nominated in six categories in total.

The best actress award went to the Netherland’s Bianca Krijgsman, who plays Mirte in “De Nieuwe Wereld,” (The New World) about an airport cleaner’s relationship with a West African refugee.
