As you can see, there are some American shows that have managed to make the cut here and there. It’s a little odd for O’Leary to not be nominated given that he’s hosting the show, but we suppose the nominees are what they are. Also, we desperately what to see David Walliams win, mostly because he is our favorite judge out there and we would watch him read a phone book.
