New York, NY -- Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy is paying tribute at the International Emmy Awards to television legends Norman Lear and Alan Alda, whose socially-conscious shows in the `70s changed the face of television.

Murphy presented the "All in the Family" creator and "M*A*S*H" star with the 40th Anniversary Special Founders Award at Monday night's gala at the Hilton New York Hotel. The organizers marked the milestone anniversary by honoring a producer and performer with shows that were on TV in 1972 when the International Emmys began.

Argentina's "Television x la Inclusion" became the first series to receive International Emmys in both acting categories when Dario Grandinetti and Cristina Banegas both won.

Brazil and Britain also won two Emmys; Australia, France and Germany had one apiece.
