Thirteen awards were presented at the Smithwicks Hot Press Music Critics Awards which took place in the The Stillorgan Park Hotel, Dublin on 30 January 1991. The award for the TV/video category went to RTÉ Television's live late night entertainment show ‘Nighthawks’.

Continuity announcer Bláithín Keaveney played by the actress Michelle Houlden is ecstatic to accept the trophy. Despite not nothing what to say she proceeds to give an acceptance speech worthy of an Oscar winner. She is grateful to anyone who has ever been involved with the production of ‘Nighthawks’,

All the faceless, invisible backstage boys who have helped me, well, in so many ways.

She then thanks her inspirational careers guidance teacher Sister Leviathan.
