The nominees for the 2012 Broadcast Awards have just been published and we are delighted to announce that The Amazing World of Gumball has been nominated in the best Childrens Programme category!

With more nominees than ever to be considered this looks to be the toughest year yet and Gumball faces stiff competition from other childrens favourites Grizzly Tales, Horrible Histories, House of Anubis, The Itch of the Golden Nit and The Sarah Jane Adventures.

 Last years winner in this category was the star studded BBC One adaptation of The Gruffalo which was produced by Magic Light Pictures in association with our Gumball cohorts Studio Soi. So heres hoping they have the winning formula to make it two in a row!

The awards will be held on the 2nd of February 2012 and with the Childrens Baftas this weekend and this brand new nomination we are finding it hard to get our work done with so many fingers crossed!
