BAFTA TV Awards: How to watch live stream online on Sunday

The BAFTA TV Awards take place at London’s Festival Hall on Sunday, May 14 with “The Great British Bakeoff” presenter Sue Perkins hosting for the first time. While the ceremony begins at 7:00 p.m., the BBC transmission is delayed by one hour, starting at 8:00 p.m. Those in the United Kingdom can watch the show online at the same time. Gold Derby will be posting the updated winners list throughout the evening.

The historical drama “The Crown,” which chronicles the first years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, dominates the BAFTA TV Awards with five bids including Best Drama Series. SAG and Golden Globe winner Claire Foy reaped a Best Drama Actress nomination for her sensitive portrayal of the young monarch. Vanessa Kirby contends for her scene-stealing turn as younger sister Princess Margaret while John Lithgow (Winston Churchill) and Jared Harris (King George VI) compete against each other for their featured roles. However, Matt Smith was snubbed for his subdued take on Prince Phillip.

With its 10 episodes, “The Crown” easily crossed the threshold of six installments required to qualify as a drama series at these kudos; the cap is 19, after which a show is deemed to be a continuing drama. Also up for Best Drama Series are the Emmy-eligible season one of “The Durrells” and sophomore edition of “Happy Valley” as well as “War and Peace,” which was submitted at last year’s Emmys as a limited series.

Below, our official racetrack odds in the 13 top categories. The predicted winners are indicated in gold. These official odds are derived from the predictions both of our in-house team of Editors and readers like you who make up the largest (and often savviest) bloc of predictors.
