It’s that time of the year again already, the preparation and process of the Cult TV Awards. First given out in 1994, we are now on our 23rd annual ceremony, celebrating extraordinary fictional television. It’s not for movies, unless they were especially made for television. It’s not for rewarding big screen talent, it’s for those who have made a huge contribution towards the appreciation of what has been achieved on the small screen. As usual, it’s down to YOU to decide not only who wins, but as a first stage the five nominees who make it through each category and onto the voting form.

The prizes you could win for nominating in the Cult TV Awards 2016

Thanks to our good friends at Fabulous Films, our collection of incentives for simply telling us your favourites, at both stages in the process, are magnificent this year. First up is the nomination phase, which will tie in with the release of THE A-TEAM on BLU-RAY. Yes, our star prize is this 22 disc set, with a running time of 4,690 mins approx, and an RRP of £149.99, and it could be yours just for telling us your favourites! Nominations go live on 1 October 2016, so look out for the link and get ready to vote.

Filmed In Supermarionation - Cult TV Award WinnerVoted for by appreciators of cult television, Doctor Who has once more in 2015 showed its continuing popularity. The first season of Peter Capaldi’s adventures cruised through this year’s Cult TV Awards by picking up top gongs, as well as many for those associated with the programme. Ratings may appear to tell a different story, but these results show that those looking for a hero rather than a heart-throb can appreciate the quality of what the full 12th incarnation has to offer. And the late Patrick Troughton became the sixth star to play the Time Lord to be added to the ‘Hall of Fame – Actor’ category.

Also of note was that Game of Thrones finally appeared on the Cult TV fandom radar, having never previously won an award, and walking away with the ‘Best Returning Premium Channel Series’ prize for its fifth season. Of the new shows coming out between September 2014 and August 2015, The Flash and Gotham, both based on characters from the DC Comics universe, were those that picked up prizes.

The works of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson also continued to be recognised by the Cult TV Awards, with Steve Zodiac from Fireball XL5 added to the Hall of Fame for ‘Animated Character’, actress Wanda Ventham, one of the female leads in UFO, added to the Actress Hall of Fame, and the documentary “Filmed in Supermarionation” was hailed as the ‘Blu-ray/DVD Presentation of the Year’.

Vote in the Cult TV Awards 2015 and you could win Alfred Hitchcock Presents - The Complete CollectionVoting has just concluded for the Cult TV Awards 2015, with a trio of incentives up for grabs, and the First Prize was the entire seven seasons, over 35 DVDs, of ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS in a superb box set, with a RRP of £149.99! Following the nominations phase of the Awards, where we asked you who should go in each of the five pigeonholes to be in with a chance to win each of the coveted gongs, it was up to YOU to decide who the lucky winners would be, Thanks to our good friends at Fabulous Films, we have huge incentives for you to take the time to tell us who should win.  Remember - if you didn’t vote, you can't now complain about who has won!

Alfred Hitchcock Presents is an anthology series which features guest stars such as Steve McQueen, Vincent Price, Jessica Tandy, William Shatner, Roger Moore, Walther Matthau, Burt Reynolds, Dick Van Dyke, Charles Bronson, Diana Dors, Sydney Pollock, Leslie Neilsen, Bette Davis and Robert Redford. Who could possibly resist a running time of 6,679 mins approx, which accounts for ALL the episodes, including the 1962 story “The Sorcerer's Apprentice” which was not broadcast by NBC (they felt the ending, involving the “sawing a woman in half” trick was too gruesome)? Second and third prizes were Season One on its own, with a RRP of £29.99 per set, 961 mins over six DVDs!

Win The Avengers Series 6 Blu-ray sets for nominating in the Cult TV AwardsThe Avengers – The Complete Series 6 on Blu-ray, with a RRP of £79.99, was the incentive prize for nominating your favourites in the Cult TV Awards 2015. Thanks to StudioCanal we had three sets to give away, with the winners chosen from all those who gave us their nominations, thus helping continue to make our Awards truly representative of UK television fandom.

This was the final season of the original series of stories featuring John Steed. It begins with the departure of Diana Rigg’s Emma Peel, who hands over to Linda Thorson’s Tara King. In retrospect, these episodes may be of varying quality, but when it gets it right we are presented with some of the best episodes of The Avengers EVER! The troubled beginning to this run of episodes, rescued by the return of producers Brian Clemens and Albert Fennell, followed Cathy-Gale-era producer John Bryce taking the helm for the best part of three episodes, which were little short of disastrous. These episodes were re-edited, where possible, to rescue the majority of work on them from the scrap heap.

1960s and 1970s ITC catalogue has a big impact on this year’s celebrations. Doctor Who gets bumped off by Sherlock, and a pair of new fairy tale adaptions do well. All this in Cult TV's 19th annual poll of true fans who enjoy the best in extraordinary fictional television.

ITC - a British Production powershouse scoops big in the Cult TV Awards 2012The Champions, the British show from 1968 starring Stuart Damon, Alexandra Bastedo and William Gaunt picked up the top award, the "Hall of Fame - Series", in this year’s Cult TV Awards. Also winning from Lord Lew Grade’s ITC production house was Annette Andre, a regular supporter of the Cult TV Festivals who played Jeannie in Randall and Hopkirk (Deceased) (with a new series currently in development by ITV)picked up the “Hall 0f Fame – Actress” award; and Number 6, the nameless lead in Patrick McGoohan’s prescient series The Prisoner, was added to the “Cult TV Hall of Fame – Hero” roll call.

The Cult TV Awards 2011 have yet again proved to be a fascinating barometer of television fandom in the UK. Whereas other awards ceremonies can get a little predictable in their television choices, this is not the case with Cult TV’s prizes. Whilst the success of Sherlock comes as no surprise, given its critical acclaim in other sets of awards, seeing the likes of Fringe and Lie to Me gaining similar high-ranking accolades demonstrates the breadth of TV appreciation amongst those who actively seek out the shows they like.

The Aston Martin from The Persuaders! Winner of the Hall of Fame Series

The Hall of Fame series rightly went to The Persuaders! in its 40th anniversary year – Sir Roger Moore and Tony Curtis created an incredible onscreen partnership, which lasted for just 24 memorable hour-long episodes. However, with the recent Blu-ray release by Network DVD, the series has never looked better.

The other major trophies in the Hall of Fame are the Actor and Actress categories.  These were given to Patrick Macnee (John Steed in The Avengers), and Lucy Lawless (most famous as Xena: Warrior Princess).  It is fair to say that both these people have extraordinary careers right across a range of Cult TV series, and is an example of how these particular awards have matured to celebrate entire careers rather than the one role.

The Cult TV Awards 2010 again proved to be a fascinating barometer of television fandom in the UK. Whereas other awards ceremonies can get a little predictable in their television choices, this is not the case with our own prizes. The conclusion of Ashes to Ashes was handled in such a way that, much like its predecessor Life on Mars, it will be assured iconic status in small screen history.

It pulled off a huge surprise by being voted “Best Returning Free-To-Air Series” (formerly “Best Returning Terrestrial Series”), narrowly beating Doctor Who.  Not only that, Ashes to Ashes also picked up the “Hall of Fame – Series” accolade, and its stars Philip Glenister and Keeley Hawes secured the “Hall of Fame – Actor” and “Actress” awards respectively.

Ashes to Ashes - The Biggest Winner in the 2010 Cult TV Awards

It wasn’t all doom and gloom for Doctor Who – new star Matt Smith was rewarded with the “Breakthrough Performance” award, and new show-runner Steven Moffat was recognised with the “Hall of Fame – Writer” award. There were also reasons to celebrate for Stargate Universe, V, True Blood, and most surprisingly, ITV2’s Vampire Diaries. The return of Jonathan Creek with a special one-off episode also found appreciation from the cult audience.

The selection and voting process for the Cult TV Awards...

 

Who Is Eligible to Vote?

Everyone who signs up to be an online member of Cult TV at this www.cult.tv website before 1st October 2016 gets the chance to help choose the nominees for each of the award categories.

All nominations are counted and collated and a final short-list is drawn up of the five that are voted for the most.

The votes are counted and the winners are announced at the Cult TV Awards ceremony, which will happen in some form before the end of 2016.

 

What Are The Categories?

In the Annual Awards section there are the following categories:

Best New Premium Channel Series (formerly Best New Digital-Only Series) is for a new show that debuts on a paid-for premium UK Satellite/Digital TV/Online TV services (Netflix, Amazon, etc) between September 2015 and August 2016 inclusive, but has yet to appear on UK free to view TV channels.

Best New Free-To-Air Series (formerly Best New Terrestrial Series) is for a new show that debuts on either BBC1, BBC2, ITV, Channel 4, five or any other free-to-view channel between September 2015 and August 2016 inclusive, which may have already appeared on UK premium channels.

Best Returning Premium Channel Series (formerly Best Returning Digital-Only Series) is for a show that has a new season screened on UK Satellite/Digital TV/Online TV between September 2015 and August 2016 inclusive, which has yet to appear on UK Terrestrial TV.

Best Returning Free-To-Air Series (formerly Best Returning Terrestrial Series) is for a show that has a new season screened on UK free-to-air (non-premium) TV between September 2015 and August 2016 inclusive, which may have already appeared on UK premium channel TV.

Best Repeat Series is for a show that has already been screened on television and ceased production prior to July 2009 and is being repeated on any UK television channel between September 2015 and August 2016. The rarer the screening the better!

Best Guest Appearance is for an actor or actress who appears in a one-off role in a new series broadcast on any UK television channel between September 2015 and August 2016.

Breakthrough Performance is for an actor or actress new to the "cult genre" who makes a considerable impact in series broadcast on any UK television channel between September 2015 and August 2016.

Cult TV Personality is for someone, not primarily known for a role in a fictional show who has themselves become a "cult". They should have also helped to further the appreciation of Cult TV shows in one way or another during the past year.

In the Hall of Fame Awards section there are thirteen categories in total:

Series, Actor, Actress, Director, Producer, Writer, Animated Character, Hero, Villain, Special Effects, Costumes, Music and Advertisement.

Once a winner has been voted into the Cult TV Hall of Fame they are there to stay so that over the years each category grows into a balanced celebration of Cult TV from the 1950s right up to the present day.

In the Hall of Shame Awards section there are three categories in total:

Worst Line of Dialogue, Worst Special Effect, and Worst Continuity Clanger.

A little bit of fun, the Hall of Shame highlights the occasional inconsistency and failing of our favourite shows. We do it simply because we love them.
