Loaded LAFTAs 2012 nominees announced

Tuesday 8th November 2011 @ 12:25am

Loaded Laftas. The nominees for the Loaded LAFTAs 2012 - the comedy awards organised by the lads mag - have been announced.

Alan Carr, Jason Manford, Kevin Bridges, Micky Flanagan and Russell Kane are in the running for the stand-up prize, whilst Chatty Man, Facejacker, Fresh Meat, Outnumbered and PhoneShop have been shortlisted in the 'Funniest TV Show' category.

This year sees the unveiling of two brand new categories, 'Best Internet Viral Show' - with nods to Alan Partridge, Harry Hill and the Misery Bear series; and 'Funniest Joke' which will showcase the top of the rib-ticklers from the past year.

The 'Funniest Double Act' category is perhaps the most interesting, with childhood heroes The Chuckle Brothers nominated; plus Anna Crilly & Katy Wix on the list, the first nomination of an all-female double act in Loaded LAFTAs history.

The winners are chosen via a public vote, with voting opening on Loaded.co.uk on Wednesday 9th November 2011. The winners will be announced at a ceremony in February.
