The Rose d’Or awards were held in London last night and featured a dual win for HBO show Chernobyl.

The Skills Fund contributing HBO and Sky UK mini-series Chernobyl, produced by Sister Pictures, won the ScreenSkills sponsored Best Drama award in a category featuring five other high-end television shows. It also took home the prestigious Golden Rose trophy at an award ceremony hosted by Sir Lenny Henry yesterday evening.

The awards follow a long line of recognition for the acclaimed Chernobyl, including ten 2019 Primetime Emmy wins.

The Rose d’Or awards 2019 celebrated winners from seven countries, as voted for by a jury of more than 70 industry professionals from around the world, chaired by Swedish actor Sofia Helin (The Bridge). This year was the first time the ceremony has been held in London.

The Best Drama award was presented to Chernobyl by Christine Healy, the Chair of the ScreenSkills’ High-end TV Skills Council.

At the event, host Lenny Henry talked about the need for diversity and collaboration in the industry, commenting that “when it comes to television, it can feel as if other people are telling our stories… let’s talk about diversity and what does and doesn’t work in our respective countries. Let’s learn from each other.”
