National Television Awards: Coronation Street wins Serial Drama Award

Woohoo!

Coronation Street has beaten its soap rivals to win the Serial Drama Award at the National Television Awards 2012.

The awards were held on Wednesday 25 January 2012 and beamed live to ITV1 from the 02 arena in London.

Last year, Corrie lost out on the National Television Award for Best Serial Drama to BBC1 soap EastEnders.  This year
was clearly Corrie's turn to win.

Producer Phil Collinson collected the award and handed it to Sally Dynevor (Sally Webster) who looked fantastic in a blue frock. She thanked everyone in the cast, the writers, crew who work behind the scenes. Holding the award aloft, Sally said: "And this one is for Betty Driver!"

Phil Collinson dedicated the award to Corrie creator Tony Warren.  A nice touch.

Katherine Kelly also won the award for Best Serial Drama Performance for her role as Becky McDonald. Read more on that here.

Well done, Corrie!

(jumpingupanddown) Yay!! Finally! Congratulations to Corrie! Well deserved!

When was the last time Corrie won? Anyone know?

Congratulations to Corrie about time, fed up with the constant miserable EE winning. On the downside we will never get rid of Collinson now unfortunately.

Thought Corrie was robbed last year so this is brilliant! Good job y'all :)

Frosty,is that how the tenure of a Producer tenures are determined?
Oh dear.

Congrats, Corrie. Streets ahead of EE.

i;m glad corrie won but i think its not so much the state of the street run by collinson but more to do with the state of eastenders under bryan kirkwood. EE was brilliant under deirdrick santer but is lacking direction now. thats the real reason why corrie won.
