Steven Moffat, co-creator and writer of the hit BBC One series Sherlock, has spoken out in a great deal of surprise
about the show's three major Emmy wins
collected awards for not only its stars, Benedict Cumberbatch (Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie) and Martin Freeman
(Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie), but also collected an award for Writing for a Miniseries, Movie or a Dramatic Special for the series three finale, "His Last Vow".
"When we started on Sherlock
, we thought it was a simple, private thing - good but not celebrated,” Moffat commented after the ceremony, further adding, "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."
Ben Stephenson, BBC’s drama controller, commented, “It's great to see Sherlock being recognized so spectacularly at the Emmys. I'm delighted that the BBC is home to so much world-class acting and writing talent."
Sherlock also picked up four additional trophies at the Creative Emmy Awards for Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing, Sound Editing, Music Composition and Cinematography for a miniseries or movie for "His Last Vow".
During his acceptance speech, Moffat thanked U.S. broadcaster PBS, and was full of praises for BBC. Cumberbatch and Freeman were unable to attend and accept their awards, with the latter currently starring in Richard III
in London on the West End.
Big congratulations to the cast and creative teams of Sherlock
for getting the awards and recognition they so rightfully deserved.
