‘Killing Eve’ & ‘A Very English Scandal’ Dominate BAFTA TV Nominations

Killing Eve
BBC America

Killing Eve and A Very English Scandal are leading the line at this BAFTA TV Awards and BAFTA TV Craft Awards after scoring 26 nominations between them.

The BBC America drama and the BBC/Amazon co-pro have scored the most nominations for the event, which takes place at the Royal Festival Hall on Sunday 12 May. Killing Eve has scored 14 nominations for the TV awards and the TV craft awards, which takes place on Sunday 28 April at The Brewery, London, while A Very English Scandal has picked up 12 nominations.

Patrick Melrose has secured six nominations across the two events, while Bodyguard and The Little Drummer Girl have picked up five each.

Killing Eve will go up against breakout BBC One terror hit Bodyguard, BBC/Amazon co-pro Informer and Sky sleeper hit Save Me in the main drama category.

A Very English Scandal’s Hugh Grant will compete against Patrick Melrose star Benedict Cumberbatch, Killed By My Debt’s Chance Perdomo and Kiri’s Lucian Msamati in the lead actor category, while Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer and Sandra Oh, Bodyguard’s Keely Hawes and Mrs Wilson’s Ruth Wilson will fight it out in the lead actress category.

A Very English Scandal and Sky/Showtime co-pro Patrick Melrose will also compete for best mini-series against C4/Hulu co-pro Kiri and Mrs Wilson.

Last year, in the drama category Peaky Blinders beat The Crown in a surprise move. The 2018 awards were largely a night for domestic successes rather than awards for the slew of international co-productions and British-made SVOD series that were nominated.

This year, other than a handful of co-pro credits, the SVOD services have largely been kept out of the main nominations. Black Mirror episode Bandersnatch is Netflix’s only nomination in the main categories, other than a shout for Queer Eye in the Must-See Moments category, which is voted for by the public. Netflix has been nominated for three awards in the Craft section.

Viacom’s Channel 5 will be looking to repeat its success at last year’s event, where it picked up its first ever BAFTA award with Cruising with Jane McDonald picking up the best features program. This year its Open Heart Surgery: Live, produced by The Garden, is up for best live event.
