HistoryEdit

The category was created in 2008 by the board of the International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences in order to honor telenovelas which have been produced and broadcast initially outside the United States. Until 2007, telenovelas were nominated in the category of best drama series, such as Sinhá Moça (2006), which was the first telenovela nominated for an Emmy.[2]

Brazil's Rede Globo is the TV network with the largest number of nominations, 12 in total, winning in 2009, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016. In addition to a co-production in 2011 with the Portuguese network SIC, for Laços de Sangue.[3]

Considered the most prominent event in the international television industry, the International Emmy Awards recognizes excellence in television produced outside of the United States, as well as US Primetime programs produced in languages other than English.[4]
