The series 'Chernobyl' received a 'Golden Globe': who else won the award
The series "Chernobyl" received a Golden Globe in the short series category. The award ceremony was held for the 77th time in Los Angeles. Writes about it with the BBC.
The five-part film "Chernobyl" is a story about the tragic events that took place in 1986 at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. The series was released in 2019 on HBO. In September he received an international Emmy award.
Its director Johan Renck won the nomination "Directing a mini-series, film or drama program", and the scriptwriter Craig Meisin (we wrote about his Ukrainian roots and the history of the creation of the series) was recognized as the best in the category "Script of a mini-series, film or drama program ".
“Now this story is even more important than it was before, because the global war with the truth continues. Chernobyl is proof that the truth cannot be ignored. Sooner or later, you will have to pay for it. And to pay not to authorities, but to ordinary people, ”Meyzin said shortly after the series’s premiere.
The idea to film the history of Chernobyl appeared 5 years ago. Producers sought to show that the accident at a nuclear power plant is a global problem and its scale could have been significantly greater if it were not for the liquidators.
Meyzin wanted to show fortitude, courage and the will of people who, without hesitation, tried to neutralize an emergency nuclear reactor.
“They came face to face with him. - They flew over him, swam under him, dug tunnels inside, - says the scriptwriter. - Many of them gave their lives for the sake of others. All of Europe is indebted to the liquidators. ”
The scenario is based on real events that have occurred since the accident for two years after it. The creators tried to recreate as accurately as possible all the costumes and scenery of that time.
“Since our series aims to honor the memory of all those who suffered and died as a result of the Chernobyl disaster, we worked very hard to reproduce all the details as reliably as possible,” Meisin says.
The best drama was named "1917" by British director Sam Mendes, which tells about the events of the First World War.
