  1. I’d love to see wins for The Inbetweeners and Charlie Brooker’s Newswipe. Then again, I think I’d rather just rewatch The Inbetweeners and Newswipe and pretend they’ve gotten the awards.

  2. Marvellous achievement for Julie Walters – such a national treasure! Love her work! Great to see Sophie Okonedo get two nods as well. Classy nominees

  3. @ John. Mo is about Mo Mowlam, a much loved MP in the UK who succombed to a brain tumor.

    To my knowledge the best look at Mo Mowlam was in one of Rolf Harris’ Star Portrait’s.

  4. @John, Mo is a tv movie thingy about a British Politician Mo Mowlam, she helped to established the Good Friday agreement in Ireland, she died of brain cancer in 2005. Apparently it’s a good TV movies, well obviously if she’s nominated.

    I agree I hope The Bill wins.
