With 2020 marking the 25th anniversary of the National Television Awards, the pressure was on to make it one to remember. 
NTAs 2020: The 10 Key Moments You Need To See From The 25th National Television Awards
And while it wasn’t always for the right reasons, people were certainly talking about the event on Tuesday night. 
But if the thought of sitting through two-and-a-half hours of famous types slapping each other on the back was a little too much, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. 
From touching speeches, to surprise appearances and unfortunate jokes, here’s the things you need to see...David Walliams’ opening sketch 
Something tells us David Walliams is going to have some explaining to do when he heads back into work on Britain’s Got Talent later this week. 
The new NTAs host transformed into his fellow judges for his opening skit, and let’s just say we don’t think they will be too thrilled with the result – although we must admit, David nailed Alesha Dixon’s laugh. Laurence Fox gets booedHaving made a rather controversial name for himself in the last few weeks, the NTAs audience let Laurence Fox know exactly what they though of him when they booed a mention of his name during one of David’s links. 
The presenter said: “You guys are the real stars by which I mean you are miles away from earth. Without you, us lot down here would be nothing. I mean, I would be fine – I have got my best-selling children’s books. But these people, their diaries would be emptier than Laurence Fox’s.”Curtis Pritchard has an awkward momentOur toes properly curled with Love Island star Curtis Pritchard was forced to watch one of his most infamous moments from the villa.
The ITV2 reality show had been nominated for Best Challenge Show and as the nominations were read out, we relived the moment Amy Hart found out Curtis’ eyes had wandered. 
The camera then cut to him and current girlfriend Maura Higgins in the audience, and their pained smiles said it all. Jesy Nelson gets emotional 
The Little Mix Singer was reduced to tears as she won Best Factual for her BBC Three documentary Odd One Out, in which she opened up about the abuse she has faced since appearing on The X Factor in 2011 at the hands of internet trolls, which drove her to attempt suicide. 
Jesy became emotional as she began to make her speech, in which she paid tribute to her boyfriend, Love Island star Chris Hughes. 
“This is so overwhelming. I’m such a baby. Thank you so much,” she said. Nessa has a flirt with Tom JonesGavin & Stacey made a triumphant return on Christmas Day! 👏 A throughly deserved win for the Impact award! Lets hope for more iconic episodes in the future✨#NTAspic.twitter.com/74Sxzi0Gd8— National TV Awards (@OfficialNTAs) January 28, 2020Having been the most-watched show of the last decade with a whopping 18.5 million viewers, it was only right Gavin & Stacey was honoured with a special Impact award on the night. 
What we weren’t expecting though, was to see Ruth Jones, aka Nessa, having a little flirt with Sir Tom Jones, with whom the character is said to have history with on the show. 
“You never write, you never call!” she joked. “There’s still a lot of electricity between me and Sir Tom, and don’t you knows it!”Judy Finnigan returns to the scene of the crimeThis year marks 20 years since Judy’s infamous appearance at the NTAs, during which she made an acceptance speech for This Morning completely unaware that her bra was on display. 
Returning to the stage to present the award for Best Live Magazine Show (which subsequently went to This Morning) alongside husband Richard Madeley, Judy joked: “It is nice to be back with all my clothes on this time.”Actual Ross from Friends presents an awardWithout wishing to sound unkind, the NTAs doesn’t always pull it out of the bag when it comes to finding people to present each award. 
However, that was not the case this year, as not only had they secured Caitlyn Jenner, but actual Ross from Friends. 
Of course, David being buddies with David Schwimmer, he couldn’t help but make a few digs at him, and after Schwimmer plugged his new Sky comedy Intelligence, Walliams quipped: “I’m sure both of Sky’s viewers will enjoy it.”Michelle Visage still isn’t over being voted off StrictlySpeaking of awards presenters, Michelle Visage and the queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK sashayed their way onto the stage to hand out a gong – an opportunity Michelle used to make one last dig about being prematurely voted off last year’s Strictly. 
After being met with a rapturous round of applause, she joked: “Where were all of you clapping when I Vogued on television?”.
Indeed. Michael Palin pays touching tribute to Terry JonesSir Michael Palin paid tribute to his late Monty Python co-star Terry Jones, who died last week, as he accepted the special recognition award.
“I want to dedicate this award tonight to someone who taught me more about television than anyone else, my dear friend and erstwhile Python, Terry Jones,” he said.
“Anyone who knows or has worked with Terry will have been infected with his infectious and extraordinary enthusiasm. Terry always worked to get something right. He had a certain skill in being very ruthless but also charming at the same time.”David Walliams makes ill-judged Caroline Flack jokeDavid Williams: It's nice to see Caroline flack back on TV 😳😂 #NTAspic.twitter.com/2v8MRbXDT6— Neil Vorderman AKA nrsismad 💻 (@nrsismad) January 28, 2020David was booed by the crowd after making a quip about Caroline Flack, who is currently awaiting trial after being charged with assaulting her boyfriend last month. 
After he thanked Joel Dommett, who appeared on stage with Hedgehog from The Masked Singer to present Best Serial Drama, David said: “So nice to see Caroline Flack back on TV as well.”
It was somewhat unclear whether David was referencing Hedgehog or indeed a clip from Emmerdale that was played as the nominations were read out, which featured a fight, but his comment was met negatively. MORE NTAs: People Are Seething That Mrs Brown's Boys Just Won A NTA Over Fleabag And Derry Girls Ant And Dec (Obviously) Lead The Big Winners At This Year's NTAs NTAs Host David Walliams Booed For Caroline Flack Joke

Star Wars Director Says It's About Time A Woman Makes A Star Wars Movie
Jan 02, 2024
Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Sharmeed Obaid-Chinoy is directing an upcoming Star Wars movie that brings back Daisy Ridley in the role of Rey. Obaid-Chinoy will become the first woman to direct a Star Wars film, dating back to the franchise's origins in the 1970s. Speaking about this, Obaid-Chinoy told CNN that she is "very thrilled" to make the movie and create something that is "very special.""We're in 2024 now, and I think it's about time we had a woman come forward to shape the story in a galaxy far, far away," she said.Obaid-Chinoy won Best Documentary, Short Subjects Academy Awards for Saving Face (2012) and A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (2015).In 2020, Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy told the BBC that a woman would eventually direct a Star Wars movie, saying that would "absolutely" happen, "without question." Victoria Mahoney was a second unit director on The Rise of Skywalker, but a woman has never claimed a top directing credit on a Star Wars movie.On the TV side of things, The Mandalorian has featured a number of female directors, including Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard. Chow went on to direct the Obi-Wan TV series, too.Another high-profile franchise that has never had a female director is James Bond. Producer Barbara Broccoli and Skyfall director Sam Mendes have both said they want to see a woman direct a future 007 film.As for Obaid-Chinoy's Star Wars movie, little is known about it apart from the fact that Ridley will come back to play Rey. It is expected that this film will be the first of the three new Star Wars films to come to theaters, possibly releasing in December 2025.According to a report, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight is writing the Rey movie, taking over for Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson.

NBA Names Clare Akamanzi CEO Of NBA Africa
Jan 02, 2024 15:29
The NBA named Clare Akamanzi – an accomplished business executive and international trade and investment lawyer – as CEO of NBA Africa. Akamanzi will start her position on Jan. 23, 2024, and report to NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum. In this role, Akamanzi will oversee the NBA’s business and basketball development efforts in Africa and will be responsible for continuing to grow the popularity of basketball, the NBA and the Basketball Africa League (BAL) across the continent, including through grassroots basketball development, media distribution, corporate partnerships, and social responsibility initiatives that improve the livelihoods of African youth and families. For the last six and a half years, Akamanzi was CEO of Rwanda Development Board (RDB), where she spearheaded Rwanda’s economic development by enabling private sector growth. Under Akamanzi’s leadership, RDB implemented several business policy reforms and initiatives that led to significant investment and development for the country, including through partnerships with the BAL, Arsenal FC, Paris Saint-Germain FC, FC Bayern Munich and TIME Magazine, among others. “Clare’s business acumen, international experience and familiarity with basketball and the NBA make her the ideal executive to lead our business in Africa,” says Tatum. “NBA Africa and the Basketball Africa League are well-positioned for continued growth, and under Clare’s leadership we believe these initiatives will transform economies, communities and lives across the continent.” “I’ve seen firsthand how sports can positively impact businesses, families and communities in Africa, and the NBA and the BAL are a perfect example of that,” says Akamanzi. “The NBA has done an incredible job growing basketball and the economy around it across the continent, and I’m excited about the enormous opportunities ahead to build on that momentum.” Previously, Akamanzi was Chief Operating Officer of RDB and Head of Strategy and Policy Unit, Office of the President of the Republic of Rwanda. She has extensive international trade, business and diplomatic experience, having previously worked for the Rwandan Government at the World Trade Organization in Geneva, Switzerland and at the Rwandan Embassy in London, England. Akamanzi has worked or studied in seven different countries and holds an honorary LLD from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, in recognition of her work in Rwanda. She earned a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was the recipient of three prestigious awards for academic excellence and distinguished contribution to the community: the Lucius N. Littauer Fellows Award, the Raymond & Josephine Vernon Award and the Robert Kennedy Public Service Award. In addition, Akamanzi holds a Master of Laws degree in international trade and investments from the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and a Bachelor of Laws degree from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Akamanzi has served on several company boards, including the World Health Organization (WHO) Foundation, ECOBANK and Aviation, Travel and Logistics (ATL) company. She was recognized by Forbes as one of Africa’s Top 50 Powerful Women in 2020.
