Loaded Laftas 2010

LOADED LAFTAS 2010 –

NOMINATIONS ANNOUNCED


*X-FACTOR JUDGES GO HEAD TO HEAD WITH X-FACTOR CONTESTANTS AS LOUIS & SIMON BATTLE IT OUT WITH ‘JEDWARD’ *

* NEW CATEGORIES THIS YEAR INCLUDE FUNNIEST SIDEKICK AND FUNNIEST TWITTERER*



The Loaded LAFTAS awards are set to be the comedy highlight of 2010. With the nominations out today the LAFTAS have seen an unprecedented number of votes at Loaded.co.uk and thanks to the voting public the shortlist is the most exciting and strongest to date.

2010 could get off to a great start for Michael McIntyre who leads the nominations in four categories for Funniest Man, TV Show, DVD and Stand Up. Harry Hill will fight it out with McIntyre for two gongs in the Funniest Man and TV show categories.

Shooting Stars receives a very welcome return with a nomination in the Funniest Panel Show category and Vic and Bob also get a nomination for Funniest Double Act. At long last X-Factor judges will go head to head with X-Factor contestants, as ‘Jedward’ and Simon Cowell & Louis Walsh join Vic and Bob with a nomination for the Funniest Double Act. It’s a good year for BBC Radio One which receives three nominations under the new Funniest Sidekick category.

Once again the glittering lunchtime awards ceremony will take place at London’s exclusive venue, The Cuckoo Club on Wednesday 27th January from 12pm. 2010 will celebrate the LAFTAS seventh event and this year the awards are in association with Durex Ora!, the new social networking site for all the Durex enthusiasts out there!

Loaded Editor Martin Daubney explains: "I am more excited about this year’s awards than ever before. The list of nominations shows how incredibly diverse British comedy has become, across live stand up, television, radio and film - and it’s always good to see that the American sense of humour works so well this side of the pond. As usual, I am hoping that the event in January will be as raucous as ever and I’m looking forward to introducing our lovely host Olivia Lee, on the day.”

Comedy fans can log onto loaded.co.uk and cast a vote for their favourite from Wednesday 2nd December 9am. Voting will close on January 20th.
