In advance of the BAFTA TV Awards on May 14, the British Academy of Film and Television arts handed out prizes to behind-the-scenes talent in London this evening. Four programs won two BAFTAs each: The Crown, The Night Manager, National Treasure and Planet Earth II.
Netflix’s historical drama The Crown, starring Claire Foy and Matt Smith and produced by Left Bank Pictures, picked up awards for Costume Design and Special as well as Visual & Graphic Effects, while espionage thriller The Night Manager, starring Tom Hiddleston and Hugh Laurie, won in Editing: Fiction and Sound: Fiction.
Meanwhile, National Treasure, which sees Robbie Coltrane play a television comedian who is accused of raping a 15 year-old girl several years earlier, saw helmer Marc Munden win for Director: Fiction as well as Original Music. David Attenborough’s epic natural history series Planet Earth II, received the Photography: Factual and Sound Factual awards.
UK writer Sally Wainwright won Writer: Drama for Happy Valley, making it her third BAFTA to date in this category and her fifth overall. In Writer: Comedy, Stefan Golaszewski took home the second BAFTA of his career for Mum.
James Friend won the BAFTA for Photography & Light: Fiction for Rillington Place while Tanya Lodge won Make Up & Hair Design for San Junipero (Black Mirror) and Chris Roope fought off stiff competition in Production Design, winning for War & Peace.
As previously announced, renowned prop master Bobby Warans was awarded the BAFTA Special Award for his outstanding contribution to production design.
