2021 International Emmy® News & Current Affairs Winners

The 2021 International Emmys for News & Current Affairs were presented September 28, 2021 by the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences as part of an online ceremony with the National Academy’s US News Emmys.

The 2021 International Emmy® for News was presented tonight to A Warning from Italy (Sky News, United Kingdom). In 2020, when coronavirus spread from the far-east, Italy overtook China as the epicenter. Yet nobody knew what this looked like – until, for the first time, Sky News revealed the horrific scale of the crisis in this world exclusive coverage.
 
The International Emmy® for Current Affairs was presented to In Cold Blood (Exposure) (DSP/ITV, United Kingdom). In Cold Blood examines the biggest treatment disaster in NHS history, a tragedy which killed more people than Grenfell, Hillsborough, 7/7 and the Birmingham bombings combined. Yet its scale and impact has until now been relatively understated in Britain.
