TANGLED LIVES wins first prize at The Rockie Awards
SIC and SP Televisão won one of the most important international awards in Banff, Canada, on the night of 10 June. The telenovela Tangled Lives won first prize in the category Serials, Soaps & Telenovelas at the 40th gala of the BANFF WORLD MEDIA FESTIVAL - The Rockie Awards.
With the annual participation of more than 45 countries, including a jury composed of 150 entertainment and media professionals, The Rockie Awards are considered the largest competition of this nature. It should be remembered that the most acclaimed and emblematic television series, such as Grey's Anatomy, The Good Doctor or Big Little Lies compete in this competition.
For the third year running, the telenovelas produced by SP Televisão have been nominated for this festival, which highlights the best projects worldwide in the area of television and digital content, right after the International Emmy Awards and the Seoul International Drama Awards. In this 40th edition, apart from Tangled Lives, Heart and Soul was also nominated in the same category, along with international productions such as District 31 (Canada) and Mountain Medic (Germany/Austria).
Already in 2017, the telenovelas Frozen Memories and More Than Love had been nominated in the category of best melodrama and, in 2018, Water Mirror was nominated in this same category, reinforcing, once again, the international recognition of national fiction, in particular, of SIC and SP Televisão.
