The 29th International Emmy Awards took place on November 19, 2001, at the Sheraton Hotel in New York City, United States, and hosted by American television personality Tom Bergeron.[1]


The nominees for the 29th International Emmy Awards were announced by International Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, on October 8, 2001, at a press conference at MIPCOM in Cannes.[2]

The United Kingdom won four of the six categories that competed at the International Emmys.[3] The Channel 4 took the Emmy prize in the popular arts category for his So Graham Norton series. ITV drama Dirty Tricks, starring Martin Clunes, was named best drama, while the arts documentary award went to Channel 4's The Miles Davis Story.[4]

A filmed version of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical, Jesus Christ Superstar, whose cast featured Rik Mayall, was the winner in the performing arts section. The other two trophies — children and young people, and documentary — went to Canada for CBC’s Street Cents and the Netherlands for KRO’s North Korea, respectively.[5][6]
