Britain, Brazil each get 6 International Emmy nominations; Sean Bean gets nod for “Accused”


NEW YORK — Britain and Brazil shared the lead for International Emmy nominations with six apiece Monday, including best actor and drama series nods for BBC One’s “Accused.”

“Accused,” is a television anthology series created by writer-producer Jimmy McGovern with each episode following a different character as they are accused of a crime and await their verdict in court.

Sean Bean, best known for his roles in “The Lord of the Rings” and “Game of Thrones,” was nominated for his role in an episode of “Accused” in which he goes against his usual tough-man image. Bean plays a bored school teacher by day who becomes a transvestite by night and gets involved in an affair with a married man that leads to a brutal crime of passion.
