THIS IS ONE REPEAT PERFORMANCE WE DON’T WANT TO SEE!
Last year Sherlock fans around the world watched in utter disbelief, as The Only Way is Essex beat Sherlock to the YouTube Audience Award at the Baftas 2011. Martin Freeman’s expression said it all and was shared with so many of us at home, when it was revealed that after all their hard work on quite frankly an astounding first series, the public had responded by voting for ITV2’s reality drama as their favourite programme of 2010!
This year Sherlock has once again made the shortlist for the YouTube Audience Award at the Arqiva British Academy Television Awards 2012, and THIS YEAR we want to show the people behind this incredible series how much enjoyed every minute of the incredible second series they gave to us.
The Audience Award is a public vote, which is meant to reward programmes that have “captured audiences imaginations”, and if that doesn’t describe Sherlock exactly, we don’t know what does. The fans proved the power of their vote when they worked together to see Benedict Cumberbatch be ranked in 7th place in the popular vote for the 2012 TIME 100 Poll with almost 92,000 votes in his favour, a truly remarkable number, so the game is on to do it again for Sherlock at the 2012 BAFTAs.
You can only vote once per computer or mobile device - but that means your votes are only limited by the number of devices you own, and every vote you place from a single separate device will be counted, be it computer, tablet or smartphone.
BAFTA have only allowed votes from UK residents.
Please spread the word by reblogging this or using the hashtag #VoteSherlock4Bafta on Twitter and Tumblr when you share the link where to vote. Let’s work together on this one and get the result this incredible team deserves after all their hard work, and send the message to them by doing so, that we love what they do!
