Graham Norton Nabs BAFTA TV Award
23 May 2011 :
Graham Norton at BAFTA Television Awards wireimage
Graham Norton walked away from last night’s BAFTA Television Awards with the award for Entertainment Performance for ‘The Graham Norton Show’. The Irish presenter also hosted the event.

Though ‘The Graham Norton Show’ lost out to ITV’s ‘The Cube’ in the Entertainment Programme group, Graham Norton himself clinched the prize for Entertainment Performance for his hosting skills on the BBC series. Beating off competition from fellow nominees, Rob Brydon (The Rob Brydon Show); Stephen Fry (QI) and Harry Hill (Harry Hill’s TV Burp), the Cork native took a break from his presenting role at last night’s gala award ceremony to accept his gong, saying “This is incredible - we used to win these years ago and I'd forgotten how nice it is!”

Ireland’s other BAFTA nominees, Robert Sheehan and Brendan O’Carroll were unfortunately less successful on the night; Robert Sheehan was nominated in the category of Best Supporting Actor for his role as Nathan in ‘Misfits’ but the prize was ultimately won by ‘Sherlock’s Martin Freeman with ‘Sherlock’ also claiming the Academy’s Drama Series award for which ‘Misfits’ had also been shortlisted. Brendan O'Carroll's hit sit-com 'Mrs. Brown's Boys', nominated in the category of situation comedy, lost out to BBC Two/Big Talk Production’s ‘Rev’.

The 57th annual Phillips British Academy Television Awards ceremony were held last night, Sunday, May 22nd in the London Palladium and were broadcast live on BBC One. For a full list of winners visit www.bafta.org/awards/television.
