Hartswood Films’ Sherlock scoops seven Emmy Awards

26 Aug 2014

Sherlock won three Emmys at last night’s Primetime Emmy Awards in LA, making a total of seven Emmy Awards for the drama – more than any other nominated programme at this year’s awards.

Benedict Cumberbatch won Best Actor and Martin Freeman Best Supporting Actor in a Mini-series, with Steven Moffat scooping the Best Writing in a Mini-Series for the final episode of the third series, His Last Vow.

Adding to this, Sherlock won four awards at last weekend’s Creative Arts Emmys – for Single-Camera Picture Editing, Sound Editing, Music Composition and Cinematography – taking its total to seven awards.

Steven Moffat said: “When we started on Sherlock, we thought it was a simple, private thing – good but not celebrated. We are still reeling from its success, and the joy it has brought so many! We came out to LA thinking we would take nothing home but the memory of a great night – to have won seven Emmys in total is something none of us will ever forget.”

The hit BBC One drama will return to screens for a Special, followed by a series of three new episodes, to start filming next year.
