On Monday, Globo Brazil’s Caminho das Indias novela won the Best Soap Opera award at the International Emmy Awards in New York. The show, which was one of the most popular TV programs in Brazil during its run, beat out its competition from France and the Philippines.
The show’s creator, Maria Perez, says the show has been purchased by 80% of Latin American countries, where it will be broadcast in the coming months. She is also in talks to sell the show to India, which would give the Indian audience a peek at how Brazilians view their country.
Members of the cast attended the ceremony and helped celebrate the win.
