During a gala ceremony hosted by Gina Dirawi at the Cirkus Arena in Stockholm on Friday, the winners were revealed for Kristallen 2018, which rewards innovative thinking, originality and craftmanship in Swedish television.
Although nineteen statues were handed out during the ceremony, only three categories are drama specific and both Best Drama and Best Actress (Hedda Stiernstedt) went to epic saga The Restaurant (Vår tid är nu), which follows a family and their restaurant through the decades that follow World War II.
Meanwhile, Best Comedy and Best Actor (Henrik Dorsin) were awarded to season three of Grotesco, which included a satirical musical about the refugee crisis in 2015 and how it changed the country’s socio-political landscape.
