NATIONAL TELEVISION AWARDS 2017: LONGLIST NOMINATIONS REVEALED – #ThisIsTheLatest

NATIONAL TELEVISION AWARDS 2017: LONGLIST NOMINATIONS REVEALED 0 192

Today, the eagerly awaited contenders for the world of tanks matchmaking beeinflussen National Television Awards have been revealed and voting has officially opened across the UK.

The power is now in the hands of viewers, as the public vote for the TV stars and shows they love. On the http://unikeld.nu/?ioweo=demo-etoro-opzioni-binarie&4b3=8a 25th January 2017, stars will gather at The O2 London for a glittering extravaganza hosted by Dermot O’Leary. O’Leary himself is nominated for a hat-trick of awards, including TV Presenter.

This year sees the introduction of a brand new category, Period Drama which celebrates the huge international appeal and high production values of our home-grown historical drama. ITV’s Victoria and BBC1’s Poldark renew their Sunday night ratings rivalry by competing for the prize. From bodice-rippers to whodunits, new arrivals The Durrells, War & Peace and And Then There Were None also appear, alongside returning favourites Call The Midwife and Endeavour.

Poldark’s Aidan Turner and Victoria’s Jenna Coleman also go up against each other as television’s hottest stars are both contenders in Drama Performance – will Aidan fend off the challenge or will Jenna be crowned victorious?

In Drama, the main hopefuls boast blockbuster ratings, crowd-pleasing plots and compelling characters. Will the long-awaited Cold Feet comeback edge out stylish spy thriller The Night Manager? Crime sagas Happy Valley and Marcella could also take the prize. Or will global hit Game of Thrones slay the competition?

There’s one television phenomenon that’ll soon be looking very different: The Great British Bake Off. Will Mary, Mel and Sue’s valedictory series rise to the top in The Challenge Show category? This award acknowledges the addictive nature, talking point appeal and sheer entertainment value of reality elimination series. Also included are contests from sunnier climes I’m A Celebrity ..Get Me Out Of Here! and Love Island. Or do Britons prefer the home charms of The Great British Sewing Bee or The Apprentice?

TV Judge category hails the crucial role and cult appeal of our iconic talent show judges. Will it be BGT’s clown prince David Walliams or talent show king Simon Cowell? Bake Off stars Paul Hollywood or Mary Berry, or will Len Goodman – set to waltz off Strictly for the final time after a 12-year tenure – win in this category? Or maybe comeback kids Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne have the X Factor that voters are looking for?

Comedy sees edgy breakout hit Fleabag taking on both a rebooted Porridge and Sir David Jason’s Still Open All Hours. The coveted Talent Show prize is a clash between those schedule-dominating, ratings-grabbing entertainment juggernauts Britain’s Got Talent, The X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing. Will conjuring, crooning or choreography get the nation’s vote?

In TV Presenter…Mel & Sue go up against Ant & Dec, and a host of television’s best-loved star name contenders. A great summer of sport also sees Gary Lineker nominated for his Presenter duties during Euro 2016 (and for bravely fronting Match of the Day in his pants!), while Clare Balding’s gold-medal-worthy hosting of the Olympics gets a well-deserved nod. And let’s not forget Adam Hills, whose nightly editions of The Last Leg brought wit and great gags to C4’s Paralympics coverage.

In Serial Drama, EastEnders has romped to victory for the past two years. Can Coronation Street or ever-thrilling Emmerdale take back the prize? Or will Hollyoaks or one of the Aussie soaps, Home and Away or Neighbours,steal their thunder.

And the 2017 NTAs also finds on-demand services rewarded for the stand-out content that’s changing the way we view television. Binge-watch favourites Stranger Things, Making a Murderer and Transparent are all in contention for the top awards. Is this the year they steal the trophies away from prime-time main terrestrial TV?

The National Television Award shortlist will be announced in January when the final round of voting begins. Hundreds of stars and thousands of fans will join host Dermot O’Leary for the biggest night in British TV at The O2 London on the 25th January, when the results will be revealed LIVE at the National Television Awards broadcast on ITV.

Viewers can vote free online at nationaltvawards.com OR by simply calling up a voting form on 0844 646 2060. Calls cost 5p plus your network access charge. Voting closes at 11pm on Sunday 23rd October 2016.

JAMES CORDEN TO BRING LATE LATE SHOW TO LONDON NEXT MONTH 0 65

The Emmy® award-winning The Late Late Show with James Corden will return to London to broadcast four special episodes from the historic Central Hall Westminster, from Tuesday 19 June to Friday 22 June 2018, to air exclusively on Sky One and TV streaming service NOW TV in the UK.

Corden will host a star-studded lineup for the show’s second UK adventure, including Cher, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Niall Horan and Foo Fighters, with additional guests to be announced.

The episodes, produced by CBS Productions and Fulwell 73, will air in the US on the CBS Television Network and share highlights of James’s time in the UK. The Late Late Show’s signature musical and comedy segments, such as Crosswalk: The Musical and Take a Break, will be given a British twist.

Ben Winston, executive producer of The Late Late Show with James Corden, said: “Broadcasting The Late Late Show from James’s hometown of London last year was such a thrill. Thanks to CBS and our partners at Sky One, we are back for a second year. We are looking forward to a fun week in London, putting a UK spin on our nightly show.”

Philip Edgar-Jones, head of entertainment at Sky, said: “James Corden is one of Sky One’s brightest stars and we are delighted to welcome him home for his London recordings of The Late Late Show. And with such a stellar lineup of guests, it’s going to make British summer time even hotter.”

Sky One will broadcast the homegrown episodes from 19-22 June at 10.00pm, and they will also be available on TV streaming service NOW TV.

James has been a firm favourite on Sky One and NOW TV for a number of years, presenting A League of Their Own and appearing in two successful series of A League of Their Own: US Road Trip.

The Late Late Show with James Cordon is available daily via Sky’s on demand service and NOW TV. The show regularly features a mix of celebrity guests, musical acts, games and sketches. The show holds the YouTube record for the most-watched late-night clip with Adele Carpool Karaoke, which has more than 180 million views. The Late Late Show with James Corden airs weeknights on CBS. Ben Winston and Rob Crabbe are the executive producers.

ITV TO AIR WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE 20TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIALS NEXT WEEK 0 88

To mark the 20th anniversary of the global hit game show, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, the iconic programme will return to ITV for a week of celebratory episodes, starting this Saturday. Airing as a stripped event across the week, the 7×60 minute episodes will play out every night and will be hosted by brand new presenter, Jeremy Clarkson.

The show will offer members of the public the chance to win £1,000,000. Each contestant will have the opportunity to answer 15 questions on their way to hopefully winning this life changing prize.

The contestants will be helped along the way by familiar lifelines of ‘Ask The Audience’, ‘Phone a Friend’ and ’50:50’, plus a brand new fourth lifeline; ‘Ask The Host’.

This brand new, additional lifeline allows the contestant to ‘Ask The Host’ if he [Jeremy Clarkson] knows the answer or if he has an opinion on what it might be. Jeremy never sees the questions ahead of the contestants so there is no guarantee he will know the answer. Will Jeremy be able to help someone along the way to winning one million pounds or will it cost them everything?

In another twist, contestants will be able to set their own second safety net amount. There is a fixed safety net at £1,000, meaning once a contestant has successfully answered Question 5 and won £1,000, that’s the minimum they will take home.

Traditionally, the second safety net was automatically set at £32,000. However, in these seven celebratory episodes, this new twist will allow the second safety net to be set by each contestant. Once they have banked £1,000, they will be given the opportunity to set their safety net ahead of the next question being asked. They can set their safety net only once and anywhere from £2,000 to £500,000. Will contestants be brave enough to risk losing big money in the hope to go all the way?

Jeremy Clarkson said “If the contestant chooses that lifeline [Ask The Host], they get to ask me if I know the answer. God help them. Anyone who doesn’t win £1,000,000 is bound, at some point, to ask me if I know the answer. And if it’s 1970’s prog rock music, I probably will. If it’s anything other than that, I probably won’t.”

On talking about the safety net changes, Jeremy Clarkson added “They can choose where it goes. So they choose how much they are going to lose at any given moment, which is a very clever idea. That requires balls of steel. To go beyond, say £32,000, when you’re going to drop back to £1,000 if you get it wrong. To say, ‘no I’ll set it at £64,000 and risk losing £63,000 if I get it wrong’, balls of steel.”

The series will be produced by Stellify Media with filming taking place in Manchester. Commissioned for ITV by Siobhan Greene, Head of Entertainment, with Ben Kelly Commissioning Editor, it will be executive produced by Fiona Clark and Stellify’s joint managing directors Kieran Doherty and Matthew Worthy, with Julia Knowles as Director. Who Wants To Be A Millionaire is a Sony Pictures Television format.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? starts Saturday 5th May at 9.15pm on ITV and continues nightly thorough-out the week at 9pm

More Details on All The Format of The Show:
In each episode, six different contestants will play ‘fastest finger first’ for the chance to win a place in the coveted chair and play the game. If a game concludes with one contestant, the remaining contestants will play ‘fastest finger first’ again for another opportunity to play for one million pounds.

Each contestant can see the question, answers, use their lifelines and still choose not to play the question and walk away with any money they have banked. The host is never shown the answer in advance of the contestant deciding to play the question and locking in their answer by saying ‘Final Answer’. The host does not have an earpiece or have any way to find out the answer.

Fastest finger first
The host will read out a question and four answers. Contestants will need to put the answers in the correct order. Fastest finger first questions are timed and the contestant who answers correctly in the fastest time, wins a place in the chair to play for one million pounds.

The contestants will face 15 questions for the chance to win one million pounds. Money will increase in the following increments:

Question 1 – £100
Question 2 – £200
Question 3 – £300
Question 4 – £500
Question 5 – £1,000
Question 6 – £2,000
Question 7 – £4,000
Question 8 – £8,000
Question 9 – £16,000
Question 10 – £32,000
Question 11 – £64,000
Question 12 – £125,000
Question 13 – £250,000
Question 14 – £500,000
Question 15 – £1,000,000

Safety Nets
There is a fixed safety net at £1,000. This means that once a contestant has answered the £1,000 question correctly, this is the minimum they will take home. Traditionally, the second safety net was automatically set at £32,000.

However, in these seven celebratory episodes, a new twist will allow the second safety net to be set by each contestant in play. Once they have successfully answered Question 5 and won £1,000, they will be given the opportunity to set their safety net ahead of the next question being asked. They can set their safety net anywhere from £2,000 to £500,000. The can only set this once during their game and until they set their second safety net, they will be asked ahead of seeing the next question. If they choose to set their safety net at the next question, they must correctly answer that question for it to be set and be in play. For example; A contestant has successfully answered Question 10 and won £32,000, they could then be asked if they want to set their safety net at £64,000. If they say yes, they will then see the question, four possible answers and can decide if they want to play. If they play and correctly answer the question, the minimum they will go home with is £64,000. They can continue the game and their safety net will remain at £64,000. This cannot be moved or reset. If they answer the question incorrectly, they will lose £31,000 and leave with £1,000.

Four lifelines are available to all contestants to use once at any point in their game, one more than was traditionally available.

The four lifelines available to each contestant in the chair are:

50/50
Contestants can choose to use this lifeline to remove two random wrong answers, leaving one correct answer and one random wrong answer. Even after they have used this lifeline, the contestant can still choose to not answer the question and take the money that they have currently banked.

Ask The Audience
If a contestant decides to use this lifeline, the host will read the question and all possible answers. The host will ask the audience to vote for the answer they think is correct via an electronic keypad within an allotted time. The audience will not have access to any device where they could find out the answer from a third party or Internet. The contestant does not need to take the advice given nor continue playing the game. The contestant can still choose to take the money they have currently banked.

Phone A Friend
If the contestant wants to contact a friend, the host will lead the call and explain to the chosen friend that the contestant needs assistance on a question. Once the host hands the call over, the contestant will have 30 seconds to read the question, possible answers and have any discussions. The ‘friend’ will not see the countdown clock. The contestant does not need to take the advice given nor continue playing the game. They can still choose to take the money they have currently banked.

Prior to arriving to set, each contestant will be asked to select two ‘phone a friends’ and give their details. On the day that each contestant is set to play the game (six contestants per episode), Production will send an independent security team to all phone a friend residents in that episode. Once a contestant plays fastest finger first and wins a place in the chair, the security team will enter both of the ‘phone a friends’ residents. This is to ensure that if and when phoned, the friend does not source outside help to answer the question. Once the contestant has finished their game or used their lifeline, security will leave.

Ask The Host
This is a brand new, additional lifeline available once to all contestants. This lifeline allows the contestant to ‘Ask The Host’ if he [Jeremy Clarkson] knows the answer or if he has an opinion on what it might be. The host can give his opinion, answer or share his thoughts but there is no guarantee he will know the answer. Once he has shared his thoughts / given as much as he can, he will say ‘That’s my final answer’ which signifies the end of his assistance and the contestant can not ask the host any more questions. The host is never shown the answers in advance of the contestant saying this is my ‘Final Answer’. The contestant does not need to take the advice given nor continue playing the game and can still choose to take any money they have currently banked. If the contestant does decide to play, the contestant will select the answer and say ‘final answer’. Once the answer is locked in, the contestant and host will have the answer revealed at the same time.
