    Ah the TV BAFTAs. Such is their odd timing, that by the time the winners are announced for one year, we have nearly half an eligibility period of material to scrutinise for the next year’s awards.

    The TV programmes eligible are those which are British, and broadcast in the UK between January 1 & December 31st 2016.

    New rules on eligibility and calendar for 2017 BAFTA TV Awards released:

    The British Academy of Film and Television also set the dates for next year’s TV Awards (Sunday, May 14) and TV Craft Awards (Sunday, April 23).

    As for those new rules, both the TV and TV Craft ceremonies are aiming to reflect today’s trend towards co-productions.

    So, for the TV Awards, the non-international categories will now “put the emphasis on creativity rather than on funding“, BAFTA director Emma Baehr told The Hollywood Reporter.

    Under the old guidelines, at least 50% of a TV show’s budget had to come from the UK to be considered for the non-international categories. Now, shows must prove that creative control resides in the UK.

    For example, The Night Manager – a BBC/AMC co-production – was previously only eligible in the international category because of its funding. But now, because its creative team resides in the UK and its development is driven from Britain, it can be included for homegrown awards.

    Regarding the TV Craft Awards, UK-based individuals will now be eligible for honours, even if the show they work on is only qualified for the international category of the TV Awards.

    For example, if someone works on Game of Thrones, they can be included for the TV Craft Awards so long as they reside in the UK and their craft was also completed there.

    The nominations for the TV Craft Awards will be revealed on March 28, followed by nominations for the TV Awards on April 11.

    Hmm not sure how I feel about this change. It seems like this will bring the BAFTAs more in line with the Emmys and I kind of appreciated them as their own unique body. With these rules in place, I’m not sure that something like Catastrophe could win writing, for example.

    The Night Manager and The Crown both massively benefit from this.

    Game of Thrones benefits in the craft awards, not sure about the main awards itself though.

    Happy Valley and The Hollow Crown will win Drama and Mini Series. They have seemed to grow more popular in their second seasons.

    I’d love that but I think what might stop both of them is that BAFTA rarely awards twice, particularly in the series categories. I think what is more likely is that Happy Valley will finally get a win for Sarah Lancashire, who somehow lost for the first season, but something else (perhaps even The Night Manager) pips it to the post for series. The Hollow Crown, meanwhile, has strong competition in the equally revered National Treasure so if they stick with awarding something new then they will go there instead. Think one of Cumberbatch or Okonedo (the nomination will be harder for her) will definitely win for The Hollow Crown though.
