ABC's John Safran's Race Relations and The Last Confession of Alexander Pearce are the only Aussie TV shows to net a Rose D'Or nomination.

Controversial ABC comedy John Safran’s Race Relations is up for two awards at the prestigious Rose D’Or Festival in Switzerland.

It is also up for a Social Award against An Englishman in New York, Ballet Boyz, Cast Offs and more.

The Last Confession of Alexander Pearce is up for Drama & Mini Series against titles including Parenthood, Misfits, An Englishman in New York and Royal Wedding.

Other shows competing in the Festival include Eurovision, Psychoville, The Inbetweeners, Top Gear, Outnumbered, Coach Trip, Hot Seat (UK), and In the Night Garden.

The Rose D’Or awards will be announced in September.

  1. Great to see Aussies recognised by the Rose d’Or festival. And huge congratulations to The Last Confession of Alexander Pearce. This film has quietly been flying the flag and winning awards all over the world for the last year or so. ABC can still make great drama and this film deserves all the accolades and awards heaped on it.
