Chernobyl Wins Best Limited TV Series At Golden Globes 2020

Much acclaimed Sky mini-series Chernobyl has won the award for Best Television Limited Series at the Golden Globes 2020.

The five-episode series, based on the real-life disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear reactor in 1986, gripped audiences around the world with its chilling content.

The cast features the likes of Jared Harris, Emily Watson and Stellan Skarsgård. Fans of Game of Thrones and Line of Duty will also recognise Laura Elphinstone, who was burned alive while saving Arya Stark at King's Landing in the former and who plays DI Michelle Brandyce in the latter.

A synopsis of Chernobyl describes the show as dramatising 'the true story of one of the worst man-made catastrophes in history', adding that it 'tells of the brave men and women who sacrificed themselves to save Europe from unimaginable disaster'.

It continues: "The miniseries focuses on the heartbreaking scope of the nuclear plant disaster that occurred in Soviet Ukraine in April 1986, revealing how and why it happened and telling the shocking, remarkable stories of the heroes who fought and fell."
