Piers Morgan was booed in absentia at last night’s National Television Awards

Piers Morgan at the 'ITV Palooza!', Gala at the Royal Festival Hall, London, UK

Britain’s National Television Awards were held last night, and for American readers, I don’t think the NTAs are the equivalent of the Emmys. Maybe more like the Daytime Emmys combined with the People’s Choice Awards? If that helps you put it in context. The NTAs are not the BAFTAs, but people still come out and a good time is had by all. Well, this year, Piers Morgan was nominated in the “Best Presenter” category for his old position at Good Morning Britain. The same job he quit rather than apologize for all of the horrendous sh-t he said about the Duchess of Sussex. Piers didn’t win, which is funny on its own, but apparently when his name was read out as one of the nominees, Piers’ peers booed that bitch.

Piers Morgan received the textbook definition of a mixed reaction during this year’s National Television Awards, when he was booed by those in attendance. The former Good Morning Britain anchor was one of five contenders in the Presenter category at the NTAs on Thursday night, where he was up against Ant and Dec, Holly Willoughby, Alison Hammond and Bradley Walsh.

However, while Piers was not actually in attendance for the ceremony at London’s O2 Arena on Thursday night, it sounded like some of his detractors might have been.

When Piers’ name was called, alongside a clip of him grilling former health secretary Matt Hanock during the early days of the pandemic, a loud chorus of boos was heard coming from the audience – although others were heard cheering.

In the end, it was Ant and Dec who took home the Best Presenter title, marking their 20th win in that category.

How embarrassing for Piers Morgan that his name trends on social media when he loses an award and gets booed in absentia. What a loser. He’s desperate to get back on GMB too, which makes it even funnier, especially since the network (ITV) told him to forget it. He keeps claiming to have all of these job offers coming in, but I haven’t seen it. He mostly just sits on Twitter and obsessively criticizes women of color. He did tweet the GIF of himself storming out of the GMB set though.

    It’s what he deserves.

    So mad I missed this.

    • Still_Sarah says:

      @ WithTheAmerican : But Piers Morgan lives for this kind of thing. He loves being the villain and has made a career of it IMO. Being boo’d gets him press and in his media world, any press is GOOD press. He’s gotten rich by being the cranky old man who hates everyone and everything.

    When you’re down you find out who your friends are – and when you’ve been an ass, you see that you don’t have any.

    The Daily Fail is spinning it this way 😂
    “NTAs 2021: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Oprah interview is met with BOOS and JEERS from star-studded audience as clip from famous chat plays during TV Moments montage”

    • Rmcgrudiva says:

      Woooooooow. Not one bit of shame.

    • Calibration says:

      How are they saying that? We’re they booed? I just looked and it’s the first and largest headline

      • Pao says:

        They weren’t. Otherwise people would have talked about it on twitter. I haven’t seen one tweet about it. U know what was talked about tho? Piers morgan getting booed.

      • Calibration says:

        I get this makes me incredibly naive but huge headlines of H and M being booed that can be proven to not have happened? what? I know it’s the Fail but even for them?

      • Pao says:

        @Calibration. The fail lies all the time. Weren’t they the same ones that claimed baby lili was going to be born on Philips birthday? Only for her to he born already. They make things up as they go regularly.

      • Calibration says:

        @pao but those lies are different. That’s just their everyday made up bs that we read here every day. But something that’s so obviously disproven, even for them, is just terrible. Most of their lies are just fabricated stories but this event actually happened. Anyway, I guess I’m naive

      • Pao says:

        @calibration: if they had video evidence of them getting booed they would have included it in the article. They haven’t because there isn’t any. Again, last night during the NTA’s nobody talked about h&m getting booed. I don’t think h&m were mentioned at all. But Piers getting booed was all over the internet.

      • Eurydice says:

        From what I’ve read, a short clip of the Oprah interview was included in a montage about notable TV moments of the year, and some in the audience booed that. But I don’t think it was anything like booing an actual nominee.

    • Courtney B says:

      This was repeated on the NY Post as well.

    • Harry says:

      The Daily Mail is not the only one to cover the story of MM and H being heckled. Look at Page Six, etc.

      • Debbie says:

        Aren’t the newspapers you guys mentioned controlled or owned by Rupert Murdock though?

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        @Debbie. Page Six is the gossip column for the NY Post which, yes, is owned by Murdoch. Also, “The New York Post is getting a new top editor, News Corp announced Tuesday. Keith Poole, the deputy editor in chief of The Sun, the British tabloid that is also part of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, will become editor in chief of The New York Post Group, which encompasses the print newspaper and related websites.”Jan 5, 2021 (from the NYT)


      • Agreatreckoning says:

        When Prince Harry referred to the BM as The Cartel he wasn’t kidding. The basic list of the royal rota is: Daily Express, Daily Mail/Mail on Sunday, Daily Mirror, Evening Standard, The Telegraph, The Times and The Sun. Then you have UK’s The Press Association/PA Media Group wire services. DMGT(Rothemer/Daily Mail) is the biggest shareholder, News UK(Murdoch’s News Corp is 2nd The Times, The Sunday Times, The Sun) and Reach Plc.(Mirror Group) is in there too.
        The PA Media encompasses, but not limited too: Ireland on Sunday, Mail Today(India), Metro, Metro.co.uk and their other holdings. A number of papers share the same head office building-The Independent, Daily Mail, Evening Standard and the Metro. It’s not a surprise when the papers/online papers that are owned by the same individuals, ie. Daily Mail/Metro & The Sun/The Times/NY Post, share the same stories. Especially when they’re being sued or have been sued by Harry & Meghan. The Duke of Sussex knew things would not end well staying there because it wouldn’t ever end with media and the messed up BRF dynamics.

        The common thing I read in the O interview clip being booed was that ITV didn’t pick up on the audience noise. Maybe. But, apparently, they were capable of picking up on PM’s.

      • Bex says:

        Page Six used the Daily Mail as the source of their story. This isn’t proof of anything but copy and paste “journalism”.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        @Bex, correct. Or what is called lazy clickbait “journalism”.

  5. Jessie Quinton says:

    I love this song.

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      LOL. It took me a few hours. Maybe Beyonce or Eminem will title a song Booed in Absentia? Great title.

  6. Mac says:

    Ugh, who nominated this garbage person?

    • Jessie Quinton says:

      The Cambridges. Lol

      • BothSidesNow says:

        Of course they did!! Leave it to the Lambridges to support their puppets for carrying out their campaign of hate and racism, not that it was a tough sell to Pissy Morgan…
        I find it hard to believe that he actually posted his congrats on Twitter, in addition to his childish walk-out, as well as their deserved win. The only possible scenario, is that he was either black out drunk, or heavily duct tapped to a chair for the entire evening. He isn’t capable of such gestures.

        Oh, how I wish he had been there to witness it.

        BTW Pissy, you deserve to be run out of the country never to be seen or heard from again.

      • Agreatreckoning says:

        @Jessie Quinto..I want to LOL at that but it’s probably true.

        Well, LOL anyways.

  7. Noki says:

    He didnt deserve to win. But to the UK readers here,how do Ant and Dec manage to win every year and get all the gigs? There is clearly a tiny pool of talent they use for everything.

    • Jo73c says:

      The shows they host get very high ratings. They’re very popular with families at home watching TV.

      • Janey says:

        yep, super popular in our house. with the exception of I’m a celebrity we can watch their programmes as a family (youngest is 9) and they are hilarious. Plus they’ve been loyal to ITV and I think that has been rewarded with all the jobs they get. They are also now advertising Tik Tok in the UK and I’m confused about that.

        Having said all that, anyone who can kick that flabby faced f*ckwit into touch is ok in my book.

  8. SusanRagain says:

    I’m OK with Boo-ing people.
    I still Boo at anyone Trump related when they pop up.
    Not Baron tho, he has enough to deal with born into that bunch.

  9. Mimi says:

    BOOOOOOOO can’t stand him

  10. Becks1 says:

    Ha, couldn’t have happened to a nicer person.

  11. aquarius64 says:

    Pus was booed because he has became the face of British gonzo journalism. He and his ilk has given the BM a bad name.

  12. Myra says:

    Shame he was nominated in the first place. I don’t even know why they bothered giving him a co-host or inviting guests on his show to begin with. It was a one-man show.

  13. girl_ninja says:

    He deserves so much more. I hope he never works in television again.

  14. Over it says:

    I felt sorry for the glass window he walked into at the GQ awards.
    Piss is a punk ass bitch.

  15. Lady Digby says:


    Quite a few media commentators like Mic Wright rightly despise Piers Gammon.

  16. MerlinsMom1018 says:

    “Piers’ peers booed that bitch”
    Kaiser, I wanna be just like you when I grow up!!!!!!
    and can I just say those tweets are 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

  17. Sofia says:

    Oh well. Guess being a Twitter troll/unfunny arsehole doesn’t win you much love with the public. Who would have thought? (Sarcasm)

  18. L4frimaire says:

    Regardless of the likes he gets on Twitter, he works in a small industry and I bet there are a lot of people behind the scenes who do not like him or like working with him.

  19. House of No says:

    Boo! I wanted audio or video footage.

  20. Debbie says:

    Booed in absentia? I never knew that was a thing. Also, is there ANY picture of that man which doesn’t look like congealed vomit? Really, I’m seriously asking.

  21. Slippers4 life says:

    I wish there was footage of him banging into a door on the way out of the GQ awards during Harry’s speech. T

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      With any luck, a security person that mans the security cameras will “accidentally” release it.

  22. Catherine says:

    All of the subsequent stories about the Sussexes being booed were based on the Daily Fail story. There was no independent reporting. They repeated the same quote from the same “ audience member”. If it actually happened there would have been more independent reports. The stories about Morgan being booed were everywhere. What is the likelihood of the Sussexes being booed and not a single person tweeting about it. Of course after the fail story came out trolls claimed it happened. And I don’t know why anyone would doubt that the Fail would lie when they do it all the time.

  23. Belly says:


    Warms my heart. I only wish I could have seen his pursed-up catbutt face when he found out!

  24. loras says:

    Meghan and Harry were booed.This site doesn’t want to acknowledge any criticism of these two.This site places them on such a high pedestal that one would get a nose bleed looking up at them.

    • Still_Sarah says:

      @ loras : So true. Not so much fun to come here anymore. So much name calling and “mean girl-ing” going on. I don’t like Piers Morgan but I do not feel the need to call him names like “Piss” and “Pus”, etc.. He’s a nasty old narcissist and hates everyone. Be prepared for the onslaught of “hater” abuse coming your way.

    • Likeyoucare says:

      Do you have the video of that boo incident?
      We watched video on morghan but funnily no video for Harry and meghan?
      Report from Daily Mail not counted, they lies all the time.
      By the way, is that you morghan?

  25. Ana says:

    Well… like “Has and Megs”, right ?
