The OTT Platform MX Player has bagged a win at the 2020 Asian Academy Creative Awards for its acclaimed shows, Queen and Times of Music.
MX Player, which is one of India’s leading entertainment streaming platforms, has been engaging viewers with their MX Originals and the brand continues its winning streak at the 2020 Asian Academy Creative Awards. The Asian Academy Creative Awards are Asia-Pac’s most prestigious awards for creative excellence, honouring the excellence in craft and technical discipline across multiple platforms including television, digital, mobile, streaming, and any other emerging technologies.
The streaming giant recorded two victories this season at the award ceremony – the prestigious Best Original Program by OTT was bagged by its Ramya Krishnan starrer Queen and the Best Music/Dance Program Awards was bagged by its music reality chat show – Times of Music.
Commenting on the win, Gautam Talwar, Chief Content Officer – MX Player said, “Both these web series have been extremely special projects for us, and they’ve been an industry first – be it Queen that was mounted at a never seen before scale for a regional series or Times of Music that was genuinely a first of its kind concept. One of the top priorities for us was to offer differentiated content that would resonate with audiences and we’re very pleased to receive such an honour for our efforts, not only on an India level but Pan-Asia as well.”“Elated that Queen has won the Best Original Programme by a Streamer/OTT at Singapore’s Asian Academy Creative Awards, and more so because we won on the very same day that we started filming for Season 1 of the series! It’s great to be recognized alongside some of the biggest shows across all Asian countries. A big shout-out to the entire team and I am looking forward to filming season 2 soon”, added Ramya Krishnan as she speaks about the win for Queen.
Vishal Dadlani, the host of Times of Music said, “The concept of Times of Music is fresh, unique, and something the audiences haven’t seen before. MX Player has done a great job of constructing the show and detailing out each aspect – be it artiste pairing, the fantastic stage or finding hidden stories that have been lost over time, which made for such great conversations. This has been one of the biggest musical stages in the digital space and this award is a win well deserved for the entire team.”
