The hit Netflix show had stiff competition in the Best New Drama category but managed to beat its competitors.
— National TV Awards (@OfficialNTAs) September 5, 2023
Due to the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strikes a lot of the cast of Wednesday weren't in attendance at the NTAs.
As a result, British actor Moosa Mostafa, who played Eugene Ottinger in the hit Netflix drama, accepted the award on behalf of his colleagues.
"I'm the evident representative of Wednesday," he explained. "A lot of my cast can't be here today due to the strikes in America but I'm holding it down for everyone in the UK."
Firstly thanking the fans of Wednesday, Mostafa described the support the show has received as "nuts" and "unbelievable".
"I've got to thank Netflix, MGM, all of the producers, all the cast and Tim Burton - what an incredible director."
Mostafa went on to detail how he's dealt with his newfound fame since Wednesday's success.
"A crazy experience," he remarked. "Honestly, I'm going back to school in two days so the fact that I'm here is kind of nuts!"
Earlier this year, Netflix confirmed Wednesday will return to screens with a second season.
Season 2 will see Jenna Ortega return in the titular role, alongside Emma Myers, Catherine Zeta Jones and more.
All episodes of Wednesday are available to stream now on Netflix.
The National Television Awards airs live on ITV1 and ITVX at 8pm on September 5.
