Did Graham Norton just die a death in the opening sequence or is it just me?

every year I watch it and say never again..and then I watch it and am disappointed again. Graham Norton was bloody awful.And as much as I think Olivia Coleman deserved her awards I thought her acceptance speech both times appeared 'over acted ' with the ooh I didnt expect it or prepare anything ! If youre nominated surely it goes without saying that youre in with a chance of winning and should have something prepared!!! Just saying......

Olivia coleman s acceptance speech was cringe.
The vagina gag was attention seeking crap.
Ant and dec were robbed

squoosh Mon 13-May-13 00:03:27

I wish someone would rob Ant and Dec, and never return them.

Mrsrobertduvall Mon 13-May-13 06:41:07

I only caught the last half hour.
Alan Carr......shite show.
Game of thrones...never heard of it.
Sheridan Smith, loved Mrs Biggs but hate the fake "oh I've won, surely not me, I am not worthy so I'll swear" speech.

Lov Michael Palin...such a lovely unassuming man. And his comment about Terry Jones..."thanks for those kind words, they could be your last" was priceless.

And I wanted Matt leblanc to say " How you doing".

OC's dress made a definite bid for freedom ! She needs to visit S & B - I've got this gorgeous taffeta dress but it just won't stay put , ideas please ! No Miranda this year ?

The only award we thoroughly disagreed with was Alan Carr. It would take a major personality transplant to make him funny.

I strongly suspect Olivia Coleman is a MNetter and if she isn't she should be. And Romola Garai too.

Love Olivia Coleman and Julia Davies, a tough call, that one.

However, all the "I've won, I didn't expect it, I'm a mess, I wish someone else had won, so I didn't need to speak confused (Ben Whishaw)" really, really gets on my nerves. Pleeeease, you've been nominated and attended an award ceremony. There's a 1 in 5 chance, you might win. I had to shut Sheridan Smith up. I just couldn't watch her. Thank God for live pause and fast forward!

Michael Palin. So well deserved. That's how to conduct yourself. All you "lovies" take note.

squoosh Mon 13-May-13 10:15:19

Ben Whishaw seemed 'refreshed'.

Chipstick10 Mon 13-May-13 11:14:10

Very disappointed with Olivia, came across as a Lovie and I didn't expect that. Sheridan was very gwenie. Yuk.

Clawdy Mon 13-May-13 13:58:38

Yes,I like Olivia and Ben W, and didn't mind Sheridan S. but their gushing,mock shocked,gasping speeches were cringe-making. As if they weren't really expecting it...!!

Aww I did think that Ben W looked genuinely shocked though to be fair. He probably thought Derek Jacobi was a shoe in. He very much deserved it though, his Richard II was wonderful.

HazeltheMcWitch Mon 13-May-13 14:07:00

Awww, I LOVE Ben W.
I thought that he is just genuinely quite shy, and yes, probably thought that Sir Derek had it in the bag. Thinking of it, Ben doesn't do much press or promo stuff, so I think he's just one of those that is confident etc when acting, but would prefer not to be in the spotlight when he's not.

and i hate the way the cameras focus on the losers who must look pleased for their opponents the winners

waikikamookau Mon 13-May-13 14:21:09

how did graham accept the award for the entertainment show, that his tv show won?

PoppyAmex Mon 13-May-13 14:49:11

"and i hate the way the cameras focus on the losers who must look pleased for their opponents the winners"

Anne Reid didn't - in fact she was shaking her head looking mighty pissed off when cry-baby actress won (and then tried to disguise it) grin

LadyBeagleEyes Mon 13-May-13 14:53:48

I think the best bit is when they focus on the losers pretending to smile.
How the fuck did Made In fucking Chelsea win an award?
And East Enders?

waikikamookau Mon 13-May-13 14:57:27

yeah, when they must look pleased, they really have act then aren't they? grin

PoppyAmex Mon 13-May-13 15:05:47

I was pleased that "Made in Chelsea" won, just because I got to see Alan Sugar looking seriously annoyed grin

Mrsrobertduvall Mon 13-May-13 17:23:33

I want a loser to stand up and say "I was robbed!"
That would add a bit of drama.
Or launch into "It should've been me".

Anne Reid did look pissed off.

PoppyAmex Mon 13-May-13 17:26:37

Like this?

"am gonna lett'ya finish..." grin

Mrsrobertduvall Mon 13-May-13 17:34:19

oh he is such an arse.

But yes, Sean Bean legging it up the steps and decking Ben do dah would be interesting.

squoosh Mon 13-May-13 17:45:20

I thought Sean Bean looked most handsome last night. All tanned and grinning.
