Oops! I seemed to have opened up a can of worms here.
The point I was trying to make in my original post was that Awards shouldn't be set up as competative on the night. Instead of having the obnoxtious "..and the winner is!" why can't they just give an award to someone for something well done without all the pseudo-Holywood barff?"
because the BBC has lost the plot, it used to have a remit to some extent to educate, now it is about being commercial about viewing numbers.
