Baz Ashmawy and his Mammy Nancy have won an International Emmy Award for his show '50 Ways To Kill Your Mammy'. It was named ''Best Non-Scripted Entertainment'' last night.
Baz told the press about the backlash he first faced with the show in America - when viewers actually thought he was trying to kill his mother. He said: 'In the states there was a lot of backlash in the beginning because I don’t they have the same understanding of sarcasm or irony that we have, they thought I was actually trying to kill my mother.'
'When I was making Mammy I wanted to make something that was funny and was fresh and something that made people feel a bit sentimental about their family. I wasn't making it for awards or to sell or any of that stuff, but it's an amazing nod'.
Moone Boy won Best Comedy at the same event in 2013.
