The British Comedy Awards Nominations Are Announced

The nominations for the British Comedy Awards 2011 were announced earlier tonight, and a couple of David Tennant's projects are in the running for prizes.

Sky TV's This Is Jinsy, the surreal show created by Justin Chubb and Chris Bran, was nominated for Best Sketch Show. David played the ultra-camp plastic surgery addict Mr. Slightlyman in the first episode, Wedding Lottery.

Twenty Twelve, the spoof documentary series from the BBC focusing on the trials and tribulations of the British Olympics Deliverence Committee, received two nominations: Best New Comedy and Best Sitcom. Hugh Bonneville, who plays the head of the committee, Ian Fletcher, also picked up a nomination for Best Comedy Actor. David provided the voiceover for the series, which he apparently recorded down a digital phone from America while shooting Fright Night.

The British Comedy Awards 2011 will be broadcast live from Fountain Studios on Friday 16th December at 9pm on Channel 4. The host, as last year, will be Jonathan Ross. For more information and a full list of nominees, click here.
