Aidan Turner, Eleanor Tomlinson, and Poldark itself have been nominated at the 2017 TV Choice Awards, but they’re facing some stiff competition in each category. Last year, the BBC 1 period drama did not pick up any trophy. Could the series and its actors lose the awards again this year?
Poldark, Aidan Turner, Eleanor Tomlinson Nominated at TV Choice Awards
Many hope Aidan Turner, Eleanor Tomlinson and Poldark will fare better this year, having been nominated in the Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Drama categories. The series will go up against edgy police dramas Broadchurch and Line of Duty, and army show, Our Girl.
In the acting categories, Turner will go head-to-head with Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch, Broadchurch’s David Tennant, and Casualty’s George Rainsford for Best Actor. His co-star Tomlinson, who plays Ross Poldark’s wife Demelza, will compete with Our Girls’ Michelle Keegan, Broadchurch’s Olivia Colman, and Casualty’s Amanda Mealing for Best Actress.
The 2017 TV Choice Awards will take place on Monday, Sept. 4, in London. There are also two shows from the United States included in the list, The Big Bang Theory and Modern Family, which is not a huge shock to everyone given both are popular globally.
Why Poldark and its Cast Should Win the Awards?
It can be recalled that Aidan Turner, Eleanor Tomlinson and Poldark were not lucky enough to bag the awards last year – although the BBC series won Best New Drama in 2015. This year, fans believe there are enough reasons the show and its cast should win at the 2017 TV Choice Awards.
First, Poldark has featured some of the best views and landscape of Cornwall. The beautiful film sets depict close-to-reality setting of 18th century England. Fans also believe Poldark‘s cast are some of the best looking stars in the entertainment industry to-date. Not to mention, Aidan Turner is deemed one the sexiest actors after he flaunted his ripped torso in front of the camera.
The chemistry between Turner and Tomlinson is also undeniably great. Both of them have portrayed their roles exceptionally, and would be fitting winners of the acting awards.
Poldark Season 3 has also been widely celebrated since its airing. Trying to win Demelza back after cheating on her, Ross Poldark is left to face new lovers and new battles. Demelza, for her part, is expected to take revenge on his husband by cheating on him too. Should the series lose again, Poldark fans will definitely be pissed.
