Who Dominates Constellation Awards
No sooner has the Doctor dusted himself off after his BAFTA related scuffle with Sherlock then he has to face yet another foe at an awards ceremony- only this time, rather fittingly for this week, it’s himself!
And the best part: you get to vote for your favourite… if you’re Canadian.
As reported on the Doctor Who News Page both Matt Smith and David Tennant have received nominations in the Best Male Performance: Television category for this years Constellation Awards for their interpretation of every-one’s favourite time traveller for The End of Time, Part Two and A Christmas Carol respectively.
The pair also face competition from Who guest star Tony Curran for his portrayal of Vincent Van Gogh in Vincent and the Doctor
The Constellation Awards, now in their fifth year, are Canada’s premier Science Fiction and Television awards and have a history of lavished nominations upon Doctor Who which has picked up the Best Science Fiction Television Series award three times in the last four years.
Karen Gillan has also received the nod for Best Female Performance: Television for Amy’s Choice (really?) where she’s up against a fellow Who alumni in the shapely form of Katherine Jenkins for her role in A Christmas Carol.
As if that wasn’t enough the programme has also received recognition for the work of Murray Gold in the Best Technical Accomplishment and for both Steven Moffat and Richard Curtis for their scripts for The Eleventh Hour and Vincent and the Doctor in the Best Overall 2010 Science Fiction Film or Television Script catagory.
