When it comes to British TV series and those who star in them, there is certainly a high level of quality at play. Thus, when it comes to award shows, it must get painstakingly difficult for appointed judges to determine who is most deserving of a trophy.
With the U.K.’s TV Choice Awards, appointed judges are not a factor. Rather, fans are tasked with voting for their favourites in a number of different categories. Believe you me – if you decide to vote, tough choices will be encountered.
At this point in the process, fans are encouraged to help whittle down the long-list of nominees in each category, by June 1. From there, a short list of nominees will be presented, and another round of voting will commence. The award show itself will take place on Monday, September 10.
A number of series (“Doc Martin,” “Poldark,” etc.) and stars (Jenna Coleman, James Nesbitt, etc.) you know and love from watching VisionTV, have been nominated. You can view the list of VisionTV-featured nominees below.
