Sherlock‘ is quite possibly one of the best TV series to ever come out of the United Kingdom. I’m British and I know these things. So, to see Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman win an Emmy each tonight at the 66th annual Emmy Awards wasn’t a huge surprise. It was, however, absolutely delightful to watch.

Benedict Cumberbatch, of course, was nominated and won in the Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie category. Martin Freeman was awarded his Emmy in the Supporting Actor category. Both were highly deserved.


Sherlock also picked up an Emmy for Best Writing for a Miniseries or Movie for the episode Sherlock: His Last Vow.

Scottish writer and Executive Producer of the show, Steven Moffat, penned that episode, and was the recipient of the award. He’s been nominated a couple of times before, and also for particular Sherlock episodes, but this is the first time he’s won. Yay!
