The National Television Awards were deeply traumatic for me last year. Sherlock should have won a number of awards. It lost out each and every time. I went into mourning.
But 2012 is a new year and the only way we can ensure that the best programmes win is if we vote and vote in large numbers. You can cast your votes here:
Voting closes at midday on 25 January and the ceremony will be broadcast live from the O2 on ITV1 on Wednesday 25 January at 7.30pm.
I have chosen to illustrate this story with an image from Doctor Who for reasons that will become apparent very quickly.
This is who I am backing:
Best Talent Show: Strictly Come Dancing
Best Drama: Doctor Who
Best Drama Performance Male: Matt Smith, the Doctor, Doctor Who
Best Drama Performance Female: Karen Gillen, Amy Pond, Doctor Who
Best Sit Com: Outnumbered (No Rev - how stupid is that?!)
Best Serial Drama: Eastenders
Best Serial Drama Performance: Jessie Wallace, Kat Moon, Eastenders
Best Reality Programme: The Apprentice
Best Entertainment Presenter: Ant and Dec
Let us hope that this year, the right programmes take home the awards - get your votes in now!
