The entire team of Lust Stories and Sacred Games made their presence felt at the 47th Emmy Awards. Radhika Apte was nominated in the Best Actress category for her role in Lust Stories. Actress Marina Gera for Eternal Winter eventually won the award.

Lust Stories was also nominated in The Best TV Movie/Mini-Series category but the award went to Australian thriller series Safe Harbour. Sacred Games was nominated for the Best Drama Series but they too lost the award to a British crime drama series McMafia.

Though the Indian series couldn't bag any awards, the day called for a celebration for Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who played an Indian businessman Dilly Mahmood in McMafia.

Radhika Apte took to Instagram to share pictures of the entire team of Lust Stories and Sacred Games. She captioned it saying, "ll of us, lust stories and sacred games! @iemmys @netflix_in photographed by @jasonkimphoto."

Karan Johar, one of the directors of Lust Stories, also posted pictures from the award ceremony. He wrote, "Headed to the International Emmys #iemmys in @dolcegabbana Styled by @nikitajaisinghani !!!"

Both the Indian series didn't win at Emmys but all the nominees and their teams did make the best of their time at the award night.
