IRISH actor Chris O’Dowd picked up his first Emmy at the 41st International Emmy Awards last night in New York.
O’Dowd’s comedy series Moone Boy beat off competition from South Africa’s Late Nite News with Loyiso, France’s Workinggirls and How to Enjoy the End of the World from Brazil.
The 34-year-old was at the ceremony with his writing partner Nick Vincent Murphy.
The award-win came as it was announced that the Co Roscommon star – and former Garryowen’s GAA player – is to make his Broadway debut opposite Hollywood actor James Franco in a production of Of Mice And Men
Beginning in March 2014, O’Dowd will play the role of Lenny to Franco’s George.
