Dermot O’ Leary presented the NTAs this year and the show was opened brilliantly by Sam Bailey, Michael Bolton and a choir of kids from Educating Yorkshire.
The first award of the night went to Paul O’ Grady: For The Love of Dogs for Factual Entertainment. I was so happy because I love that show! 🙂 Sam and Michael presented them with the award. Paul mentioned how the real stars of the show were the dogs.
The next award was presented by Tom Daley for Entertainment Programme. This award went I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here! Kian and Joey spoke. Well done Kian and co!
The Documentary Series Award went to Educating Yorkshire while Best Newcomer went to Khali Best from Eastenders who was presented the award by fellow Eastenders’ Danny Dyer and Kellie Bright and gave a really nice speech. Daytime went to This Morning.
Matt Smith won Drama Performance while Drama was won by Doctor Who. TV Detective was won by Benedict Cumberbatch.
Nigel Havers did a fab performance as Simon Cowell from Harry Hill’s musical based on The X Factor I Can’t Sing with the actress who plays Sinita and another fab performance from Abbey Clancy, Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli and three professional male dancers. Abbey, Craig and Bruno presented the award to Ant & Dec.
Irish luck was shining as Mrs Brown’s Boys took home the Comedy award. Well done all! Brendan joked, “Thank you so much for voting. It looks like our Twitter campaign, our advertising and our threats paid off.”
Serial Drama Performance went to Julie Hesmondhalgh presented by Nick Grimshaw. I was so happy for her. I just wish that both her and David Neilson could have jointly won. They came up together and it was so sweet! 🙂 She thanked her deceased dad who died last year, her husband and David.
Sam Bailey sang The Power of Love beautifully too.
Talent Show went to Strictly Come Dancing and Corrie won the Serial Drama which audience member Sarah presented.
The Landmark award was won by Ant & Dec.
The awards were as usual voted by the public. Well done to everyone! 🙂
