Brits stick out at Rose d’Or noms

'Office' man to receive honorary award

British comic talent has again dominated nominations for the performance awards at the Rose d’Or festival in Lucerne, Switzerland, to be held next week.

Comedian Steve Carell, the lead in the American version of “The Office,” is in the running for the male sitcom perf award along with British actor Peter Capaldi, tapped for his part in acclaimed BBC political satire “The Thick of It.”

Among other Brits nominated are veteran performer Stephen Fry, picked for hosting BBC gameshow “QI,” and comedian Catherine Tate, competing in the female comic performer section.

In the female soap perf category, British actress Natalie Cassidy, late of BBC flagship soap “EastEnders,” is up against Una Kavanagh from Ireland’s “Fair City” and Alexandra Neldel from Germany’s “Verliebt.”

Ricky Gervais, star and co-creator of the original British “The Office,” will receive the honorary Rose d’Or at the shindig’s closing ceremony April 29.
