Last night’s National Television Award ceremony had some surprising winners. Hosted by Dermot O’Leary at the 02 arena, the NTAs are voted for by the viewers alone. Find out who won the 2017 NTAs:
As usual it was a fruitful night for Ant and Dec, however this year they won just 3 awards. The duo won the Best Challenge Show against Love Island, Bake off, MasterChef and the Apprentice. They also won best Presenter (for the 16th time) whilst Best Entertainment Show was awarded for Saturday Night Takeaway – winning over Graham Norton.
However, Graham did receive a Special Recognition award for giving viewers twenty years of hilarity with his dry, quick wit we all know and love. On winning the award, Graham forgot to pay thanks to his mum, and after stated that the award will ‘turn to hell’. We think he should have won an award for being the best wit on TV.
Mrs Brown’s Boys (not surprisingly) won Best Comedy against Black Is The New Orange, Benidorm and Big Bang Theory.
This Morning won Best Live Magazine Show, beating loose women, BBC News and the One Show.
For the first time Emmerdale beat their rival soaps to the post; they were awarded Best Serial Drama.
Strictly Come Dancing has become so popular that it beat BGT and X-Factor in winning Best Talent Show.
The much-loved Gogglebox won Best Factual Entertainment against Paul o’ Grady, DIY Sos and Tattoo Fixers.
The biggest surprise award was Best Drama, which surprisingly went to Casualty. The programme was up against the awesome show, the Night Manager (starring the gorgeous Hugh Laurie and Tom Hiddleston), Happy Valley, Game of Thrones and Cold feet.
Tom Hiddleston lost out again, this time to Sarah Lancaster, for the Best Drama Performance. We still love you Tom!
Meanwhile, best Serial Drama Performance went to Lacey Turner for Eastenders. Corronation St didn’t lose out either, awarding Best Newcomer to Faye Brookes for her role as Kate.
Mary berry proved age is just a number when she swooped Best Judge over Simon Cowell and crew and Len Goodman.
