Downton Abbey - Hugh Bonneville And Olivia Colman Tipped For British Comedy Awards

Downton Abbey star Hugh Bonneville and actress Olivia Colman have been tipped for success at the upcoming British Comedy Awards after picking up top nominations.

Tyrannosaur star Colman has been named twice in the Best TV Comedy Actress category for her roles in religious sitcom Rev and Olympic satire Twenty Twelve, while Jessica Hynes, her co-star in the latter, and Rebecca Front (The Thick of It) are also up for the honour.

Bonneville is in the running for the Best TV Comedy Actor prize for his role in Twenty Twelve, but he faces tough competition - he goes up against Peter Capaldi (The Thick of It), Steve Coogan (Alan Partridge: Welcome to the Places of My Life) and Tom Hollander (Rev).

The winners will be announced during a prizegiving on 12 December (12).
