Sunny Ormonde (Lilian) has been nominated for an award for the ‘best older person’s character in a film, TV or radio drama’.

It’s in the Older People in the Media awards, run by Independent Age, which provides an information and advice service for older people. This is the Gransnet special award, which is voted for by the readers of Gransnet.

Sunny’s in impressive company. Here’s the full list of nominees:

  • Derek Jacobi for Alan in Last Tango in Halifax
  • Anne Reid for Celia in Last Tango in Halifax
  • Ann Mitchell for Cora Cross in EastEnders
  • Kevin Whately for Robbie Lewis in Lewis
  • Stephanie Cole for Sylvia Goodwin in Coronation Street
  • Sue Johnston for Gloria Price in Coronation Street
  • Una Stubbs for Mrs Hudson in Sherlock Holmes
  • Sunny Ormonde for Lilian in The Archers
  • Alison Steadman for Rose in The Syndicate and Pauline Paradise in Love and Marriage
  • Brendan O'Carroll for Mrs Brown in Mrs Brown's Boys.

 This comes swiftly after Pal Aron’s nomination by the Council for Learning Outside the Classroom. Let’s hope lots of Gransnet users listen to The Archers!

    Comment number 1.

    Nothing to do with Sunny Ormonde -- sorry, Sunny! -- but why does the Character list say

    "Although Rob claimed to have a wife in Hertfordshire, it was many months before she appeared in Ambridge."

    He has never made any such claim. The county she (and his mother) were said by him to live in was Hampshire, which is not quite the same place. Please will someone correct this error?
