The C21 Awards were held last week, and two Nordic series took home major awards.

The Norwegian web drama Shame (Skam), written by Julie Andem, won Best Digital Original Series. The series has gained cult status across the Nordics and has become a benchmark for many broadcasters trying to win back online viewers.
