The winners of the 2013 Rose D'Or Awards are announced this evening in Brussels. Twenty Twelve narrated by David Tennant is one of the three nominations in the Sitcom category.

The Rose d’Or Awards pay tribute to the outstanding achievements in quality entertainment programming and encourage continued excellence from producers, and broadcasters worldwide. Representatives from over forty countries will be taking part in the event tonight, while nominees have been taken from over thirty countries. The ceremony takes place as the climax of the three-day 2013 Media Summit: A EUROVISION and EURORADIO event.

Comedy series Twenty Twelve stars Hugh Bonneville, Olivia Colman and Jessica Hynes and follows the efforts of the fictional Olympic Deliverance Committee to keep the 2012 London Games on track and on budget. It is filmed in the style of a fly-on-the-wall documentary and  David Tennant provides a dry commentary. The series and its stars have already scooped a number of awards. Tonight it is in competition with two more UK comedy shows, Spy (Hat Trick / Sky) and The Thick Of It (BBC).
