Cillian Murphy won big at last night’s National Television Awards, scooping the award for best drama performance.
The Irish actor was honoured for his role as Tommy Shelby in BBC’s hit show Peaky Blinders.
Cillian didn’t attend the ceremony, so his co-stars accepted the award on his behalf, but the actor did leave a pre-recorded message thanking viewers for their votes.
He said that the award reaffirmed his thought that$ “Peaky Blinders fans are the best in the world.”

Cillian’s award wasn’t the show’s only success last night; Peaky Blinders also picked up the gong for best drama, beating the likes of Call The Midwife and Killing Eve.
Well done to the entire cast and crew!
