Wrong results in the BAFTA Television Awards
What were the BAFTA judges thinking when they doled out some of this year's television awards?
There was a particularly shocking result in one category, and no-one seemed more surprised than the winner, Darren Boyd.
I like him and his Sky1 comedy Spy was quite amusing. But he's not the most talented in the category of Best Male Performance in a Comedy Programme.
I'd have given it to Tom Hollander for Rev, or Hugh Bonneville for Twenty Twelve.
Equally, the return of Absolutely Fabulous was a disaster and in no way warranted Jennifer Saunders a Best Female Performance in a Comedy award. Not when Olivia Colman, Ruth Jones and Tamsin Greig, who are all far funnier than Jennifer, went home empty-handed.
Elsewhere, Stephen Rea gave an astonishing performance in The Shadow Line and really should have taken the award for Best Supporting Actor - he was better than Andrew Scott, who ended up taking the sole award for Sherlock, if you don't count Steven Moffat's special gong.
Mind you, the viewing public aren't much better. I was a little surprised to see the unfunny Celebrity Juice take the YouTube Audience Award, but then there's no accounting for taste.
The best speech of the night came from Monica Dolan, who played Rose West in Appropriate Adult. The most embarrassing appearances came from the award-giving couples who tried to be funny and failed, like Alex Jones and Bruno Tonioli, and Alexander Armstrong and Jenny Agutter who were cringeing at their own stilted performance. There were also awkward exchanges between Katherine Kelly and her new co-star Jeremy Piven, and brothers Robert and Philip Glenister.
Compared with them, former TOWIE stars Amy Childs and Harry Derbidge came across as quite dignified, despite fluffing their lines. Shu'up!
