RTS Awards

Three hearty huzzahs for Tamsin Greig, who won 'Best Comedy Performance' at the Royal Television Society Awards last night. Of course the power will now go to her head, and she'll start appearing at rehearsals dressed as a Russian Empress, preceeded by dwarves scattering rose petals, but never mind. It's time Mark Heap gave the costume back anyway.

NB: Tell cello off the C4 forum that I wasn't there, or I would have said hello. In fact, 'Hello' anyway. Hope that counts...

May I add a few hearty huzzahs for Tamsin. But how can you pick one performance from a cast like that? There should be some kind of 'ensemble' award for casts without a single weak link.

I was at home in Cornwall, many miles away, having a very hot bath and reading science-fiction books, which frankly trumps any awards ceremony going. And I'm sure Tamsin let all the other cast have a touch of her trophy, so they didn't get jealous.

And I genuinely don't know who fantasycheck is, embarrassingly. I think I know, but I'm not sure.,.

Yay for Tamsin!

Great news for Tamsin!

But if you asked me at the end of Series 1 I would have tipped Mark and Michelle for all the 'gongs'. Still cant see why either hasn't been awarded yet???

i'd have given the award to the actress who plays sue white.

she had me laughing alot more than Tamsin.

but thats partly down to the writing i suppose. Sue is completely insane, caroline is somewhat more grounded.

Its the reason my favourite character on Futurama is Dr Zoidberg.

or maybe hermes... i can't decide.

I love the Zoidberg too, but Bender is my all-time fave, particularly the completely random 'Bender is great' song.
