Laurent Puons, CEO of the 57th Monte-Carlo Television Festival, which takes place from June 16-20, has named the Jury Presidents for the Fiction and News categories of its upcoming Golden Nymph Awards.

Leading the Fiction Jury, which will award a total of nine Golden Nymphs, is renowned Argentinian director, writer and producer Juan José Campanella. On television, Juan is known for his directorial work on House, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and 30 Rock, with recent credits also including Spanish comedy El hombre de tu vida, AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire and USA’s Colony.

Television host, journalist, editor and executive Etienne Leenhardt is President of the Festival’s News Jury, which will select four Golden Nymph winners.

Laurent Puons said: “I have been truly satisfied by the entries to the 57th edition of our Golden Nymph Awards. I’m delighted to welcome Juan José Campanella and Etienne Leenhardt to Monaco to oversee the judging for this year’s awards – the exceptional knowledge, experience and talent of our Jury Presidents and Members is a key reason why the Golden Nymphs have become such a coveted accolade in international television”.

The News Jury will select Golden Nymph winners in three categories: Documentary – an investigative report that covers current news; Live Breaking News Story – live coverage of a single breaking news event, as it unfolds; and TV News Item – edited coverage of a news event, broadcast on a scheduled news program, as well as an overall Jury Grand Prize.

Fiction Jury Members include Golden Globe and Emmy-nominated actor John Corbett (United States of Tara, Sex and the City), Emmy-nominated executive producer and writer Peter M. Lenkov (Hawaii Five-0, MacGyver, CSI: NY) and Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning actress Shohreh Aghdashloo (House of Sand and Fog, The Expanse).
