‘Doctor Who’, ‘Top Gear’ Earn NTA Nominations
The National Television Award nominations were announced in the UK today and several BBC America favorites such as Doctor Who, Top Gear, Ashes to Ashes, and Luther each earned several nominations, including most popular drama program and drama performance categories.
Polls are now open to the public to determine a winner in a host of categories. On January 20, a shortlist will be revealed at 16th annual The National Television Awards in London, which will once again be hosted by British radio and television personality Dermot O’Leary.
Whovians will be looking for Doctor Who to lock down their sixth consecutive award in the drama category, while also championing Guinness Book record holder Matt Smith and Karen Gillan for their own individual wins. BAFTA-award winning sitcom The Inbetweeners will vie against teen drama Skins in the Digital Choice category while Antiques Roadshow UK and Top Gear will go head-to-head for the most popular factual program. Comedy hit Peep Show will also look to win its first-ever NTA award. Additionally, Jonathan Ross and Graham Norton are nominated in the Entertainment Presenter category.
