Wolf Hall,” which tells the story of King Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn through the eyes of Thomas Cromwell, earned bids for Costume Design, Editing (Fiction), Makeup and Hair, Photography and Lighting (Fiction), Sound (Fiction) and Writing (Drama).

“Fortitude,” a psychological thriller set in the Arctic, picked up nominations for Photography and Lighting (Fiction), Production Design, Sound (Fiction) and Titles and Graphic Identity.

“Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell” is a fantasy miniseries set during the Napoleonic wars and contends for Costume Design, Makeup and Hair, Production Design and Visual Effects.
