Simon says thank you

Awards toast best of Brit TV

The best of British television congregated in London Jan. 26 for the 16th National Television Awards. Held in the colossal O2 arena, the event brought out 13,000 glitzy guests to see who would receive 2011’s publicly voted kudos.

Rescued Chilean miner Luis Uruza announced noms in the best drama category. “Britain’s Got Talent” presenters Ant McPartlin and Dec Donnelly won best entertainment presenter, and their “Talent” boss, Simon Cowell, accepted the award on behalf of the absent duo. Cowell returned later to collect his own award, the talent show kudo for “The X Factor.” The night’s special recognition award went to Bruce Forsyth for his 68 years in the biz. Forsyth, 82, told a stunned crowd: “I suppose tonight might be a good night to announce my retirement.” Pause. “But I’m not bloody going to!”
