NTAs 2017 Nominations Announced: 'Great British Bake Off', James Corden, Duncan James And 'Stranger Things' All Receive Nods

'Orange Is The New Black' vs. 'Mrs Brown's Boys' is the rivalry we never saw coming.

The shortlist for this year’s National Television Awards has been revealed, and various offerings from Netflix makes for some… erm… interesting head-to-heads.

What other awards ceremony pits ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys’ against ‘Orange Is The New Black’? Or ‘Paul O’Grady: For The Love Of God’ against ‘Making A Murderer’?

Hit Netflix show ‘Stranger Things’ has also qualified as a period drama, meaning it’s up against ‘Call The Midwife’ and ‘Poldark’ that category, while in less surprising news, ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ will battle it out with ‘The X Factor’ and ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ to be crowned best Talent Show.

An unusual mix

Voting is now open at www.nationaltv.awards.com if you want to have your say on this year’s winners, but you’ll have to do so before midday on Wednesday 25 January, and the ceremony will take place at London’s O2 Arena later that night.
