Tv Choice Awards 2022 Shortlist Nominations Announced

HIT NETFLIX DRAMA BRIDGERTON LEADS THE PACK WITH THREE NOMINATIONS

BEN WHISHAW IS NOMINATED FOR BEST ACTOR FOR THIS IS GOING TO HURT, WHILST JODIE COMER IS NOMINATED FOR BEST ACTRESS FOR KILLING EVE

JO BRAND IS ANNOUNCED AS AWARDS HOST

In another great year for TV, racy Regency drama Bridgerton once again receives three nominations, and the Netflix sensation that took the internet by storm, Squid Game, makes its first appearance in the Best New Drama category.

Will long-standing winner This Morning scoop Best Daytime Show for the seventh year running, or will The Chase break their streak? Our new category, Best Comedy Performance, celebrates the talent bringing laughter to our screens, with nominees including Ricky Gervais for his performance in After Life and Siobhán McSweeney in Derry Girls.

Ben Whishaw is nominated for Best Actor in recognition of his outstanding performance in comedy-drama This Is Going To Hurt, and Jodie Comer makes our shortlist for the fourth year running for Killing Eve.

Coronation Street is up against EastEnders, Emmerdale and Neighbours – but who will take the accolade for Best Soap?

Jon Peake, Editor of TVChoice magazine commented: “It’s a real thrill to see such a diverse range of talent among the nominations this year, as well as some established favourites. But as to who’ll triumph on the night – let’s wait and see!”

Hosting this year’s awards is comedian Jo Brand, who said: “I am, as always, really looking forward to the great evening of The TV Choice Awards 2022. It’s always a lively event, and yes, that is a euphemism!”

2021’s TV Choice Awards saw Line Of Duty score a hat trick, scooping Best Drama Series and recognising Martin Compston and Vicky McClure as Best Actor and Best Actress. Coronation Street took Best Soap, Best Soap Actress and Best Soap Actor. While Netflix smash Bridgerton took home Best New Drama.
