BAFTA TV Awards Live Blog

The British Academy Television Awards took place tonight at the Royal Festival Hall on London’s South Bank, and Deadline was onsite to live-blog the ceremony. Netflix’s The Crown took the nomination jewels, leading the pack with five nods including Drama Series, going into the evening. But it ended with no wins.

Instead, prizes went to Happy Valley, and Damilola, Our Loved Boy and to Tom Hollander for his performance in The Night Manager, which was otherwise forgotten in the nods. Adeel Akhtar and Sarah Lancashire took the Leading Actor and Actress prizes for Murdered by my Father and Happy Valley respectively. And Phoebe Waller-Bridge took Female Performance in a Comedy Programme for Fleabag.

Previously announced, the Special Award went to Nick Fraser for his work in documentary film on the series Storyville. The BAFTA Fellowship was presented to Joanna Lumley by her Absolutely Fabulous co-star Jennifer Saunders. Check out our archived liveblog below to see how the evening played out.
