The accolades keep coming for The Kennedys. The eight-part movie event was announced as a finalist in the 2012 New York Festivals International Television & Film Awards for best Mini-Series.
The event honors programming from over 40 countries. The Kennedys, currently a finalist, now proceeds to a second round of judging to determine the Grand Trophy Award recipients, as well as Gold, Silver, and Bronze medalists. Trophies will be presented at the 2012 Television & Film Awards Ceremony on April 17th at the annual NAB Show in Las Vegas.
Last week, Jon Cassar won Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Movies for Television and Mini-Series at the 64th annual Directors Guild of America Awards for directing all eight episodes of The Kennedys. The miniseries also won Best Historical Drama Production at the 2012 History Makers Awards.
The Kennedys, which reached 7.7 million viewers during its premiere week, has previously won several other accolades — four Emmy Awards (including Barry Pepper for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries) and three Gemini Awards.
