Australian TV show Wanted, which was created by and starred Rebecca Gibney has been nominated for Best Drama in the upcoming International Emmy Awards.
Gibney, 52, took to Instagram to announce she'll be heading to New York to attend the November 20 ceremony as the drama is in the running for one TVs most prestigious awards.
The Channel Seven drama is based on two women, “Lola, a middle- aged checkout chick and Chelsea, a much younger uptight accountant who get caught up in a deadly crime and end up on the run across Australia”.
Alongside her post, Gibney shared a personal story with her 87k followers. “During development I wrote in a book every day ‘International Emmy’ over and over again,” Gibney started.
“I even cut out pictures and added them because right from the start I believed that if we worked hard and focused on our goals we could achieve anything.
“Well, in a few weeks we are off to the Emmys in New York. (OK I may be in a moon boot but so what!) Not only that but Wanted will launch worldwide on Netflix tomorrow. My point is — You can make things happen, you just have to believe in yourself and those around you. Thank you to everyone who helped make our little idea a reality. We are truly blessed and forever grateful,” she wrote.
Fans were quick to react and send messages of congratulations to the iconic Australian actress.
"Congratulations that’s amazing 💕💕💕 Good luck 😘😘😘" one wrote.
Another commented: "Congratulations Bella! Great to see Aussie - and Kiwi - sisters going strong on the world stage."
Well then, we'll definitely be adding Wanted to our Netflix list.
