Ahead of the main BAFTA TV Awards on May 8, the British Academy of Film and Television Arts handed out prizes to behind-the-scenes talent this evening in London. Wolf Hall, the Playground Entertainment and Company Pictures/BBC Two adaptation of Hilary Mantel’s Booker Prize winning novels, was the nominations leader going into the evening and scored two wins at the ceremony (for Editing and Sound).
Colin Callender’s Playground also scored two prizes for The Dresser, the one-off BBC Two adaptation of the classic play that stars Ian McKellen and Anthony Hopkins. It won for Costume Design and Make Up & Hair Design.
Also taking two BAFTAs were BBC One’s Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, ITV’s The Sound of Music Live!, Channel 4’s The Murder Detectives, and BBC One’s The Hunt.
Shane Meadows won his third BAFTA as director, for This is England ’90. Russell T Davies earned his fourth, for writing drama series Cucumber.
Casting director Nina Gold, whose credits include Game Of Thrones, Wolf Hall, The Dresser, The King’s Speech and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, was presented with a previously announced Special BAFTA.
Wolf Hall also leads the nominees for the upcoming BAFTA TV Awards, followed by This Is England ’90. Other notable contenders on May 8 include Humans, The Last Panthers and Doctor Foster.
