Eric, Ernie and Me nominated for two Broadcasting Press Guild Awards
15 February 2018
Eric, Ernie and Me has been nominated for two awards in the Broadcasting Press Guild Awards 2018.
The BPG Awards – which are for work commissioned in the UK and screened in 2017 – are highly prized by programme-makers because they are selected independently by TV and radio correspondents, critics and previewers.
Eric, Ernie and Me is up against Little Women (BBC One), Three Girls (BBC One) and Sky 1’s Delicious 2 for the Best Single Drama/Mini-series award.
Mark Bonnar has been nominated for Best Actor in four performances; Unforgotten (ITV), Eric, Ernie and Me (BBC Four), Apple Tree Yard (BBC One) and Catastrophe (Channel 4). He will be competing with Toby Jones (Dectectorists, BBC Four), Sean Bean (Broken, BBC One), Babou Ceesay (Guerrilla, Sky Atlantic) and Matt Smith (The Crown, Netflix).
The 44th annual BPG awards, sponsored by Virgin TV, will be presented at an awards lunch held at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane on Friday March 16th 2018.
