In a year where we needed it more than ever, the entertainment industry rose to the challenge of creating brilliant content despite huge challenges in 2020 - and now it's time for us to celebrate the best shows, film and moments with the Awards!


From gripping drama and out of this world sci-fi, to laugh-out-loud comedy and the most exciting entertainment formats, we want to know which shows really stood out for you in the past 12 months.

We're also on the search for your favourite film of the year, as well as the best TV and sporting moment.

You can find out more about the nominees by clicking the links under each category below.

Voting is now open, but be quick, as you only have until 14th February 2021 at 5pm until the polls close.
