About The Awards

We are delighted to announce that the host of this year’s Women in Film and Television Awards will be much loved comedian and presenter Sandi Toksvig.

The Awards, which are supported by Sky, take place at the London Hilton, Park Lane on Friday 5th December and will be attended by almost 1000 film and TV industry guests. Toksvig will oversee proceedings as awards are presented in 14 categories recognising the highest achievements of women in creative media in the UK.

Toksvig commented: “I'm delighted to be hosting this year's awards. It's always both jolly and invigorating to meet so many fabulous women in the industry.”

Toksvig is perhaps best known as the host of Radio 4s The News Quiz and as a regular guest on TV panel show QI. Most recently she has hosted Antiques Master, 1001 Things You Should Know and currently 15-1. She has also had acting cameos in Call the Midwife and Up the Women.

Toksvig has also produced television. The current Playhouse Presents strand on Sky Arts was conceived by her and she produced and wrote much of the content for the first three years. She has written over twenty books including fact and fiction for both children and adults. Her latest stage play, Bully Boy, was the opening production of London’s newest theatre, the St James. The piece has just concluded a successful run in Copenhagen.
