In 2015 News at Ten did win best daily programme and Mark Austin best network presenter.
My gut feeling is that if Tom did win an award tonight ITV will not reinstate NAT just because of the award. They will either move it back to 10 naturally at the end of The Nightly Show; carry TNS on longer or find something else to fill the 10pm slot and keep the news at 1030 even longer.
Then again companies and governments have done surprising spin when u-turning or backtracking on things so I wouldn't be surprised if they did use the award as a reason for NAT reinstatement although I highly doubt they would if it was reinstated
