Emmy Awards

Sunderland graduate wins Emmy Award

Fleabag creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge and Killing Eve star Jodie Comer stole the show at the Emmy Awards last weekend - but they weren't the only Brits to take trophies home.

Sunderland graduate James Longman won an Emmy for his work on the Late Late Show with James Corden.

His team bagged the award for Best Variety Special (Pre-Recorded) for Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney.

James, who is co-executive producer of the show, said: “We beat off some tricky competition,

"We were nominated for another few but didn't win – but we’re all over the moon to win this one.”
