There was fury across the internet on Tuesday night as Mrs Brown’s Boys won at the National Television Awards. 
NTAs 2020 Viewers Are Seething That Mrs Browns Boys Won Best Comedy Over Fleabag And Derry Girls
The Marmite sitcom bagged the Best Comedy prize at the 25th annual ceremony – but there were many viewers left furious after it beat the likes of Fleabag and Derry Girls. 
Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s sitcom became a sensation on both sides of the Atlantic when its second series aired last year, while Derry Girls also became Channel 4′s most popular comedy. Ricky Gervais’ After Life and fellow Netflix series Sex Education were also nominated in the category after winning huge critical acclaim, following their debuts on the streaming service in 2019. 
But it was Mrs Brown’s Boys that triumphed, marking the fifth time it has won the category, despite only airing two festive episodes in the last 12 months.While the awards are viewer-voted, many believed that the wrong show won...Mrs Brown's Boys beating Derry Girls and Fleabag at the National Television Awards is yet another example of why the British public shouldn’t be allowed to vote for things. #NTAs— Amanda (@Pandamoanimum) January 28, 2020Me watching Mrs Brown’s Boys beating Derry Girls, Fleabag and Sex Education #NTAspic.twitter.com/eJIm7LKLdc— The Duchess (@legacyoflolita) January 28, 2020HOW did Mrs Brown's Boys just win at the #NTAs when it was up against the likes of Fleabag, After Life and Sex Education?

The show’s creator and star, Brendan O’Carroll recently hit back at the sitcom’s detractors, telling them to “change the fucking channel”. He told The Sun: “Honestly, I put on my dress and my tits and go out and make people laugh and I come off, take off my dress, take off my tits, get into the shower, come out and as soon as I come out of the theatre, I don’t even think about the show.
“The evidence of four NTA awards means people are not just liking it — they’re actually prepared to stand up and shout it.
He added: “Radio Times named us ‘Sitcom of the Century’. We can only hope nothing good happens in the next eight decades to upset that.”MORE NTAs: Jesy Nelson's Reaction To Winning A NTA Could Not Have Been Sweeter David Walliams Transforms Into Fellow BGT Judges For NTAs Sketch And The Results Can't Be Unseen Caroline Flack Returns To Social Media To Rally Behind Love Island At NTAs
