Emmys 2016: Sherlock wins best television movie
Sherlock: The Abominable Bride won the Emmy for Outstanding Television Movie at the 68th annual ceremony in Los Angeles Sunday.
Written by Mark Gatiss and Steven Moffat and directed by Douglas Mackinnon, The Abominable Bride stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the brilliant detective Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as trusty sidekick Watson. While the overarching Sherlock series takes place in modern times, The Abominable Bride is notable for being largely set against the Victorian backdrop of the original Arthur Conan Doyle stories.
The movie was nominated for six Emmys in all, including Cumberbatch’s nod for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or a Movie.
