National TV Awards

Sure, this event was over a month ago but I am just getting around to posting pictures from the British National TV is kinda like the People's Choice Awards that would be held at the Dorothy Chandler Pavillion in LA or the American Airlines Center in Dallas.  Fifteen or so categories voted on by the public for their "TV favorites":  Favorite night-time soap, Favorite Actor, Favorite Variety show, etc.


Cyn and Paulster had gotten tickets for the four of us, so on a school night, we headed off to the O2 Arena in east London for the "really big show".  Neither the Budman nor I knew too many of the actors or watch many of the shows nominated  but the people watching at the event was worth the price of admission.  Apparently, the dress code was "TV glam" and UK women had cornered the market on sequins on this evening.


The wonders of the Simon Cowell "X factor" machine:  Jedward.


Jedward and the renaissance man himself, Vanilla Ice.  "OH, pluheeeeeeeeeeese).


Dr. Who is the big Yanks have no clue what I am talking about, do you?


A UK soap star and her "fashion don't" dress.


This year's X Factor winner sings the show's opening number.


Stephen Fry wins a life-time achievement award.  You in the US know him as a recurring role on Bones????.



Yep, fun.
