Cuckoo, written by Nikki Racklin and Danann Breathnach, was nominated for 3 awards at the International Academy of Web Television (IAWTV) Awards and won in the Best Writing category.
The Awards ceremony took place last week in Las Vegas and the writing team beat big Hollywood names such as Rodrigo Garcia (Albert Nobbs, In Treatment, Big Love) and Jon Avnet (Black Swan, Fried Green Tomatoes, Risky Business).
Alongside the Best Writing award, Cuckoo was nominated for Best Directing (Drama) for Danann Breathnach, and Best Female Actress (Drama) for Pagan McGrath, who was up against Julia Stiles and Anna Paquin.
Cuckoo recently picked up awards at ATL WebFest 2013 (Atlanta) and the Lovie Awards (London), as well as being nominated at the 2013 Webbys (New York) and screened at festivals in Geneva, Rome, Marseille and Melbourne. It has also been selected at LAwebfest (Los Angeles), coming up in March.
It doesn’t change that it was a poor series that was voted out of RTE’s Storyland program.
