Rose d’Or (“Golden Rose”), the international festival for entertainment television programming, has announced its 2006 nominees.
- Best Sitcom: The Office
- Best Male Sitcom Performance: Steve Carell
The Office and Steve Carell are the only U.S. nominees in their respective categories.
Oh, and it’s nice that Ricky Gervais, executive producer of The Office and star and creator of the original UK version, will be given an Honorary Rose d’Or Award “in recognition of his exceptional creative talents, his originality and his innovation.”
The awards ceremony will be held on April 29 in Lucerne, Switzerland.
(Never heard of Rose d’Or until today? Me either! But it’s been around 43 years and is supposed to be the most prestigious competition for international television programming. Learn more here.)
So this brings up the question: in which countries is the U.S. version of The Office broadcast? — please post a comment!
