David Tennant & Projects Nominated In International Emmy Awards

David Tennant has been nominated for an International Emmy for his performance as UK serial killer Dennis Nilsen in the three-part drama Des. The acclaimed miniseries premiered on ITV in the UK last autumn. Earlier this month, David picked up a National Television Award for the role. The series follows the arrest and trial of Nilsen, who murdered numerous young men and boys in his North London homes during the late 1970s and early 1980s.

Des itself has also been nominated in the TV Movie / Mini-Series category.

Also up for a prize in the Drama Series category is the comedy-drama show There She Goes, in which David plays the father of a girl with a severe learning disability.
