Actor Adam Deacon has been nominated for ‘Best Male Performance in film’ – Interesting…
Actress Angela Griffin has been nominated for ‘Favourite Female TV’ star – Angela Griffin hasn’t been off British television screens since debuting in Coronation Street back in 1993 as an 18-year-old. It’s not so long ago that whenever they needed a black actress to play a role in major dramas, Angela (who I always used to refer to as being “the acceptable face on British TV”) was always drafted in. Casting directors always seemed to refuse to look beyond Angela. But thankfully that seems to be changing now.
Anyway the best of luck to everyone who has been nominated. Even Noel Clarke.
