“Following the Sports Personality of the Year, here’s an award people actually care about (we thought about a lavish televised awards bash but thought we’d keep it real) where we combine achievement with genuine personality; something the Sports Personality title manages to avoid.

Here we present the nominees for this most prestigious award, that we came up with less than a week ago, from the world of TV and film.

Derren Brown

This year Derren followed up on The Events with Derren Brown investigates and Hero at 30,000 Feet, complementing it with his Enigma tour. All three were received with critical acclaim and invoked sheer gawping awe in us geeks.”

Also nominated are Charlie Brooker, Chris Morris, Simon Amstell, Armando Iannucci and Iain Morris.
