The first stage of voting in the 18th TV Choice Magazine Awards comes to a close tomorrow. David Tennant fans have a chance to help him to retain the TV Choice Best Actor Award that he picked up last year for his performance in Broadchurch.
This year David is nominated in the longlist for the 2014 Best Actor Award for his performance as Will Burton in The Escape Artist. His co-star Ashley Jensen is also named in the Best Actress list. The Escape Artist is listed in the Best New Drama category and spoof documentary W1A, which David narrated is up for Best Comedy.
The TV Choice awards are genuinely the viewers’ awards, decided by audiences themselves via a two-stage online and postal vote which decides the shortlist and then the eventual category winners. The first poll closes at midnight on June 20th. The shortlist will be announced in TV Choice magazine in the 2nd July issue, after which voting will reopen.
Editor-in-Chief for TV Choice and Total TV Guide, Jon Peake said: ‘The calibre of stars who walk the red carpet into our Awards every year shows that it’s an event the TV industry loves and respects, knowing that it’s the viewers who pick the winners. We are delighted to be gearing up for our 18th year of prize giving and another truly memorable night.’
The TV Choice Awards winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on Monday 8th September 2014.
