Critical Awards in Television 2021
We invite you to place your vote now! The Critical Awards in Television are an award of a different kind: rather than celebrating best programme, best performance, best script, the Critical Awards in Television want to celebrate television in the way that we value it: this year, by drawing attention to the service it has rendered to us by giving us comfort during Covid, by celebrating those productions that came up with clever ways of dealing with Covid restrictions so that they could continue to be made, by celebrating writers who found alternative ways of telling stories and by celebrating future television makers (who are currently students) who have come up with clever ways of making television in these difficult times. Vote now!
