When it comes to star-studded award dos in America, the Emmys are about as big as it gets.

Seen as the TV version of the Oscars, the Emmys are held in Los Angeles every year to honour the best achievements on the small screen.

All the winners are picked by members of the National and International Academies of Television Arts & Sciences.


The International Emmys see TV stars and shows from all over the world compete for one of eleven programme categories and two special awards.

There have been loads of British successes in the past, including The Vicar of Dibley, Graham Norton and Ricky Gervais' sitcom The Office.
