Vote Now For Des and Staged In The RadioTimes.com Awards 2021


Voting is now open in the RadioTimes.com 2021 Awards, and two of David Tennant's projects from last year are shortlisted across three of the categories.

The heart-stopping biopic Des, in which David chillingly portrayed real-life serial killer Dennis Nilsen, is shortlisted for Best Drama. The three part ITV series is up against Steve McQueen's anthology Small Axe, Michaela Coel's I May Destroy You and BBC favourite Call The Midwife, among others.

Best Drama

  • Bridgerton
  • The Crown 
  • Normal People
  • I May Destroy You
  • Des
  • Small Axe
  • Call the Midwife
  • The Queen’s Gambit

One of the few highlights of lockdown was undoubtedly the innovative comedy Staged. Reuniting Good Omens stars David Tennant and Michael Sheen, Simon Evans' genius concept demonstrated the frustrations and anxieties of living through a global pandemic, told entirely through Zoom calls. Also in the category are the supernatural sitcoms Ghosts and What We Do In The Shadows and the final series of Schitt's Creek and Friday Night Dinner.

Best Comedy

  • Staged
  • After Life
  • Friday Night Dinner
  • Schitt’s Creek
  • Ted Lasso
  • Charlie Brooker’s Antiviral Wipe
  • What We Do in the Shadows
  • Ghosts

Staged reappears in the category for TV Moment of the Year, celebrating the moment where Dame Judi Dench herself waded in to virtually bash together the heads of the feuding David and Michael. They are up against seven other stand-out TV events of the year, including Bill Bailey's triumph in Strictly Come Dancing, Jordan North's 'happy place' in I'm A Celebrity, the tense climax to Coronation Street's domestic abuse drama and a very cute interruption during a news report.

TV Moment of the Year

  • Nigella mispronounces “microwave”
  • Judi Dench slams Tennant and Sheen in Staged 
  • “Can I have two biscuits?” 
  • John Torode sets his kitchen on fire
  • Bake Off’s celebrity challenge goes awry
  • Strictly Come Dancing: Bill lifts the trophy
  • Nasty Geoff meets his maker on Coronation Street 
  • Jordan North on I’m A Celebrity 

Voting is now open at this link and the polls remain open until 5pm on 14th February.  The winners will be announced on 7th March.
