SCA chief wins Oscar Emmy Award

"Zahi Hawas, Secretary General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities (SCA), won Thursday the Oscar Emmy Award presented by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for the best TV film at the international level.
Hawas won the Prize over commenting at the background of a documentary film on Pharaoh King Tutankhamen and the Valley of Kings and expounding the old Egyptian civilization. Also, the film's director won the same prize on the movie which was produced by the CBS channel in 2005.
The award is a golden statue of a winged woman holding ball with Hawas's names written at the bottom.
Hawas is the first Egyptian to win such a prize and it is the first time that the winner of such award was not working in the media domain."
