Coronation Street wins RTS award

Comments (0)

RTS 2013c.jpegCoronation Street has won the 'Soap and Continuing Drama award at last night's Royal Television Society Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel.

The cast members and producers present at the awards then went on to have a very nice time of it. As these pictures (courtesy of ITV) attest. Here are Natalie Gumede, Shobna Gulati, Kym Whatevershescalledthisweek, Marc Baylis, Phil Collinson and Stuart Blackburn enjoying themselves.

All abougt soap awards logo.jpgVoting has opened in the All About Soap Awards 2013 and you can vote for Corrie in one of 8 categories.

Polls close on February 25th, so you need to get your skates on if you want to take part. You can vote here.

The award comes a week after picking up Best Serial at the National Television Awards and this is the second year running Corrie has won at the Broadcast awards. The soap beat Emmerdale, Eastenders, Hollloaks, Casualty and Holby City and Catherine Tyldesley broke the news of the win by posting a picture on her Twitter stream showing her, Michelle Keegan and Antony Cotton holding the award.

In his speech, Alan paid special praise to his co-stars Liz Dawn (Vera Duckworth) and the late Bill Tarmey (Jack Duckworth), to whom outgoing producer Phil Collinson also dedicated the Serial award.

Not as fortunate were Natalie Gumede (Kirsty Soames) who lost out in the Newcomer category and Michelle Keegan (Tina McIntyre) who was in the same category as Alan Halsall.

There are nominations for Alan Halsall (Tyrone Dobbs) and Michelle Keegan (Tina McIntyre) for 'Serial Drama Performance' and a 'Newcomer' nod for Natalie Gumede. The soap is also nominated for the 'Serial Drama' prize.

Eastenders and Hollyoaks got 3 nominations and Emmerdale got 2.

michelle keegan at rts awards.jpgIt's just daft now. She's obviously a very good looking lass and all that, but there must be someone else out there in soapland that they can give the sexiest female award to? Apparently not.

Last night Michelle Keegan won Inside Soap's Sexiest Female award for the 946th time. If you add this to all the other sexiest female awards she's won she now has 12,794. Her mantle piece must be massive. That's not a euphemism, by the way.

What about Eastenders? Is there not any decent looking lasses in that? Surely there's the odd one in Hollyoaks? No? Oh well, looks like she'll keep winning for the foreseeable, then.

None of the Corrie cast turned up at the awards last night, incidentally. The Star says this is because they have got a sulk on about never winning but the official ITV line is that the entire cast was tied up with 'filming commitments'. Doesn't sound very likely.

inside soap 1012.jpegInside Soap Awards time again and Corrie have scored the most nominations with 16. Eastenders has 13, Hollyoaks 12 and Emmerdale just 7.

It seems that Corrie has done so well because they have two nominations in many of the categories. There is Simon Gregson (Steve McDonald) and Malcolm Hebden (Norris Cole) up for Funniest Male, Katy Cavanagh (Julie Carp) and Patti Clare (Mary Taylor) for Funniest Female, Kate Ford (Tracy Barlow) and Paula Lane (Kylie Platt) for Best Bitch.

Also in the frame are Chris Gascoyne (Peter Barlow) for Best Actor, Michelle Keegan (Tina McIntyre) for Best Actress, Alex Bain (Simon Barlow) for Best Young Actor, Natalie Gumede (Kirsty Soames) for Best Newcomer, Chris Gascoyne again (Peter Barlow, again) for Best Bad Boy, Chris Fountain (Tommy Duckworth) for Sexiest Male, Michelle Keegan (Tina McIntyre) for Sexiest Female and Best-Dressed Soap Star and, of course the soap in general as Best Soap.

You can vote for Corrie in the awards here.

Corrie hotty Michelle Keegan won yet another award last night. Surprisingly it wasn't for 'Sexiest Female' this time but for 'Best Soap Actress' at the TV Choice Awards.

Sadly, Corrie failed to win in the other two categories it was nominated, Kirsty Soames lost to Tony Discipline (whoever he is) in the 'Best Soap Newcomer' category and Corrie lost to Eastenders for Best Soap.

TvChoiceLogo.GIFYou can now vote for Coronation Street in 4 categories of the TV Choice Awards 2012. The shortlist has been announced and the options for sealing a win for Corrie are:

Best Soap - Coronation Street
Best Soap Newcomer - Natalie Gumede (Kirsty Soames)
Best Soap Actress - Michelle Keegan (Tina McIntyre) or Alison King (Carla Connor)
Best Soap Actor - Chris Fountain (Tommy Duckworth)

Vote at the TV Choice Awards website here before July the 13th.

Corrie last night won the BAFTA for 'Best Soap and Continuing Drama.corrie bafta win.jpg

The awards were held at the Royal Festival Hall and hosted by Dara O'Briain. Corrie beat Eastenders, Holby City and Shameless to win the award, which was collected by William Roache, other cast members and members of the production team including exec producer Phil Collinson.

Angelina Jolie may have been mercilessly mocked for doing a weird leg thing when poising for pictures at this year's Oscars but it doesn't seem to have stopped Corrie actress Natalie Gumede copying her.soap awards leg.jpg

The Kirsty 'nutter cop' Soames actress happily poked her right leg out of her frock at a jaunty angle in a very similar way to the world's most famous actress when she posed for snappers at the British Soap Awards.

Maybe its all part of some celeb/ awards/ hokey-cokey dare?

As you would expect Corrie won its fair share of awards at the British Soap Awards.british soap awards 2012 logo.jpg

Michelle Keegan won Sexiest Female for the 112th year running, Andrew Lancel won Villain of the Year and Alison King was crowned Best Actress.

Best Comedy Performance went to Stephanie Cole for her improving efforts as Sylvia Goodwin and Natalie Gumede won Best Newcomer as nutter cop Kirsty Soames.

Becky McDonald was responsible for two awards with her final episode winning Best Single Episode and Katherine Kelly winning Best Exit. Katherine picked up the awards and had this to say: "I've just come along this evening to say hello to all my Corrie colleagues, thank you to the Soap Awards for this, thank you to the nation for watching, and goodbye."
Eastenders also won some awards, but who cares?

It's that time again. Another soap awards show, another sexiest female award for Michelle Keegan (Tina McIntyre). This time it's last night's Inside Soap Awards at which Michelle won the award for the third year running.

Michelle, who is engaged to pop star Max George, did her best to feign surprise, saying: 'I genuinely didn't think I would win again. I think the people who vote clearly don't see me in my slobs on a daily basis. I think it's Tina they like anyway, not me. Max better have voted for me otherwise I'll kill him!'

Corrie also won the award for 'Outstanding Achievement' for the 50th anniversary week of shows but lost out to Eastenders for Best Soap.

The TV drama 'The Road to Coronation Street' which was shown in the UK last year has won a gold medal New York Festivals International Television and Film Awards. The programme, which featured Eastenders star Jessie Wallace as Pat Phoenix, was scripted by Corrie writer Daran Little and made to coincide with the Street's 50th anniversary celebrations. It outlined the travails Corrie creator Tony Warren had to go through to get the show up and running and was shown on BBC4.

It's the second award the show has won after it was awarded Best Single Drama at the Royal Television Society Programme Awards.
