With the Oscars, the Golden Globes, the Baftas and the National Television Awards, it seems like everyone is handing out awards left, right & centre. So who are we, at Raggedy Ann Girl to fly in the face of tradition?

So here are our favourites … what are yours?

Film of the Year …  The King's Speech.

It seems like this is everyone's favourite film right now. But no jumping on the bandwagon here at Raggedy Ann Girl! It's the first film in  a very long time that we've seen twice at the cinema. It's a moving, fascinating, beautifully shot and sublimely acted piece and it reminds we Brits why we should be proud of our former monarch.

Storyline of the Year … The Coronation Street Gas Explosion & Tram Crash.

Tragedy, drama & shocking betrayals … okay it sounds like an average week in many soap operas. But, as it celebrated 50 years on our screens, good ole Corrie brought all this and more in a fabulously acted, well written, tense, sad and, for one night, live storyline that gripped the television watching nation for many nights. An extraordinary achievement for the Nation's Favourite.

Most Consistently Surprising Drama … Spooks

Series after series this fabulous MI5 drama continues to shock, surprise and entertain. With twists and turns, races against time, and frequent deaths of series favourites. You never know who will live or die, who will turn traitor, or even who will rise from the dead. You feel better thinking there may be people this fabulous looking out for our nation's security!

Most Side-Splitting Comedy … Outnumbered

In other hands a comedy about a couple, their three troubling children, a senile grandpa & a know-it-all aunt could be a complete turkey. But with such great casting, and the confidence to allow the dialogue to develop at the hands of the actors playing the kids, Outnumbered is one of the best family sit-coms of all-time. Of course, it had to be written by parents, but the humour is aimed at every adult, even those non-parents amongst us. An utter delight.

Best Coverage of a Sporting Event … the BBC & the Grand National

For the best national events you simply can't beat the Beeb. The Grand National - the day on which many of us place our only bet of the year - is no exception. It's informative enough for those of us who rarely watch horse-racing, yet grown up enough for racing enthusiasts to enjoy too. And, for an important sporting occasion, you just can't go wrong with Clare Balding at the helm.

Best Overseas Import … Boardwalk Empire

With Sky's new channel, Sky Atlantic HD, still a newborn, it might seem a bit 'previous' to hand out an award to a drama that's only been on air a few weeks. But Boardwalk Empire is something new. And something brilliant. It's not for everyone. Its unshrinking approach to the fictionalised account of many real-life characters of the Prohibition era is for adults only. It's hard-hitting but doesn't try to moralise to its audience. That is left to the viewer. And this is what makes it the best kind of television drama, not always comfortable viewing, but always thought-provoking.

Most Welcome Blast From The Past … The Morecambe & Wise Christmas Show

To coincide with it's bio-pic at Christmas, the BBC decided to air one of the classic Morecambe & Wise Christmas Specials. What a joy! For those of us who survived a 1970s childhood, it was like going home. The funniest comedy double act ever? 1970s A-List Celebrities letting their hair down? Old fashioned variety? And Eric & Ernie on our screens again? Brilliant! They should re-screen the entire series on a Saturday evening and ratings would soar.

Happiest Hello … Outcasts

Although, as I write, this BBC sci-fi is still mid-way through it's run, I feel confident that this is one of the best new episodic dramas for many years. It does what all great sci-fi should do … it puts the human race in an alien environment and lets us debate what really is the essence of being human.

Saddest Goodbye … The Bill

For more than 20 years, ITV's The Bill had a hardcore following. It morphed from a one-hour weekly drama, through a twice-a-week soap-style show, and back again. It should never have worked. A huge regular cast list. A cop show where you never once saw the action through the eyes of anyone other than the police. And one which could switch from emotional drama one week, to procedural information the next. But it did. And for more than two decades, despite constant rescheduling that sometimes made regular viewers despair, it survived. Until it was deemed too costly and out of step with the modern television audience.

Most Moving Character Death … Ashley Peacock

As Coronation Street's local butcher and all-round nice guy, Ashley Peacock wasn't always handed the hardest-hitting storylines. So, when actor Steven Arnold and his screen wife Julia Haworth decided to depart the soap, it might have tempted the writers to allow them to drive off into the sunset for a new life in France (as had been the fictional couple's plan). Instead, loveable Ashley was permitted a selfless exit. Crushed to death as he held up the crumbling nightclub wall after the tram crash, he allowed Peter Barlow and Nick Tillsley to scramble to safety. And Ashley earned his place as that rare soap opera commodity … a hero. While his wife, Claire, was forced to flee to the Continent to avoid prosecution for clouting Toxic Tracey Barlow after she mocked the late Ashley's memory. And so became a hero in her own right …
