Sherlock: The Abominable Bride was among the winners at last night’s prestigious 68th Primetime Emmy Awards.
The show’s writer Steven Moffat, producers Sue Vertue and Rebecca Eaton along with actress Amanda Abbington were there in Los Angeles to collect the prize for Outstanding Television Movie.
The 2015 Christmas special fought off the LBJ biopic All the Way, the holiday special A Very Murray Christmas, the Anita Hall Film Confirmation and the BBC crime drama, Luther for the much sort after award.
Sherlock The Abominable Bride written by Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the British detective Sherlock Holmes and Martin Freeman as trusty sidekick Watson. Picking up where the series three finale left off, with Sherlock on a plane in the present day having learned that Moriarty is back from the dead, we’re plunged into an alternate reality in 1895 and the mystery of Emilia Rosetti, a deadly rampaging ghost bride.
The show was nominated for six Emmys in all, including Benedict Cumberbatch for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series or a Movie.
Also among the winners at last night glittering ceremony were, A Game of Thrones, The People v OJ Simpson, Bloodline, Veep, Mr Robot and Downton Abbey.
