Broadcasting Press Guild Awards Nomination For Twenty Twelve

BBC Two comedy series Twenty Twelve has received another awards nomination, this time for the Broadcasting Press Guild Awards.

The spoof fly-on-the-wall documentary was nominated for Best Entertainment / Comedy alongside Fresh Meat (Channel 4) and The Thick Of It (BBC Two). Twenty Twelve followed the fortunes of the fictional Olympics Deliverence Committee in the run up to the 2012 London Games. It starred Hugh Bonneville, Olivia Colman and Jessica Hynes with David Tennant providing a voiceover.

BBC Two drama series Parade’s End starring Benedict Cumberbatch leads the nominations, being listed five times in four categories. The BBC Two production of Richard II and its star Ben Whishaw are also nominated.

The BPG awards, which are voted for by journalists who write about TV and radio, are sponsored by the Discovery channel and will take place at One Whitehall Place in central London on Thursday 14th March.
