Olivia Colman nominated twice at Comedy Awards

Monday December 3, 2012

Peep Show actress Olivia Colman has been recognised twice for her laugh-a-minute performances by the British Comedy Awards.

The actress has wowed the judges this year, earning her two Best Actress nominations this year for religious sitcom Rev and Olympic satire Twenty Twelve.

On top of her comedic success, the actress has also scooped a series of awards for her gritty performance of an abused shopworker in actor-turned-director Paddy Considine's Tyrannosaur.

The Thick Of It is one of five programmes to receive three nominations - alongside The Graham Norton Show, Rev, Cardinal Burns and Harry Hill's TV Burp, which broadcast its last ever episode in March.

The winners will be revealed on Wednesday December 12.
