Another major winner was BBC1's Doctor Who, which was named best drama series and was given an honorary gold award to mark its 50th anniversary later this year.
Miranda Hart was rewarded for her role in BBC1 drama Call The Midwife with the best actress prize for a second year.
Coronation Street took the keenly fought best soap award, and the show also landed the best soap actress prize with Michelle Keegan collecting the title for her role as Tina McIntyre.
BBC1 rival EastEnders also enjoyed its share of wins with Shane Richie named best soap actor for playing Alfie Moon.
His co-star David Witts, who plays brooding Joey Branning, was also honoured as best soap and readers of the magazine.
Meanwhile, Mrs Brown's Boys star Rory Cowan has revealed how he got his big break after the actor who originally played his role left to become a train driver.
He ended up stepping into the stage role at the end of a tour in America.
The actor, who plays Mrs Brown's gay son Rory, inset, revealed that in Fitzpatrick's hotel in Manhattan, Brendan told him he had just got a call from Michael Anthony, the actor who had originally played Rory.
He was leaving to become a train driver.
"I genuinely thought it was a joke," said Rory.
