'Staraoke,' WeDigTV claim interactive Emmys


CANNES -- Northern Europe swept the third annual International Interactive Emmy Awards, with innovative next-generation programming from Finland, Sweden and the U.K. taking the winged statuettes.

Finland's Intervisio won the best interactive program Emmy for its interactive karaoke show "Staraoke"; London's WeDigTV, a game show channel, took the interactive channel prize; and Sweden's Television AB won the interactive television service Emmy for "The Truth About Marika," a TV drama in which viewers help determine the direction of the plot via telephone voting.

British comedian Brian Conley hosted the Interactive Emmy gala, held Tuesday night in Cannes.
