    The 2017 ceremony, honouring the best British television of 2016, may have only been last night, but there is already four and a half months of contenders for next year’s awards to dissect.

    Feel free to add any I may have missed.

    Let’s get predicting!

    I need Guerilla to dominate. I didn’t know it was eligible. Hoping Chewing Gum gets a bunch more noms this year.

    ^^^You have forgotten everyone from The Crown. While I don’t think it will get nominated again in Drama Series, Foy has been snubbed many times before and this will be her last chance for The Crown. Wolf Hall, Little Dorrit and now The Crown, it’s too much.

    In other news, Happy Valley returns in 2018, in time for the 2019 BAFTAs, where it will hopefully sweep a third time.

    Yes, because it’s not aired yet. I’ve only listed the series which have aired/scheduled to premier on screens this week.

    Definitely HARLOTS for a 2018 BAFTA!  The acting was amazing, Samantha Morton’s Margaret Wells was inspired as were all the actors.  The producers did the show justice, it was beautifully filmed.  The topics were controversial but a true reflection on the World’s Oldest Trade!  #harlotsfor2018bafta

    Okay so don’t ask why but I was randomly browsing the BAFTA rules this year after seeing what date the TV noms were being announced this year and I realised they’ve made a big change:

    The rules for the mini-series category, having always been described as any drama between 2 and 5 episodes regardless of intention to continue (see nominees like Doctor Foster), now describe ‘A drama series, between two and 19 episodes that tells a complete story and is not intended to return. e.g. The Night Manager, National Treasure, The Enfield Haunting’. Under this new rule recent drama series nominees/winners, like War and Peace or Wolf Hall, would have had to compete in mini-series like they did at the Emmys.

    Not sure how I feel about it. It obviously makes much more sense given the category title but I’ve always liked how literal BAFTA were about what was classed as mini or drama series compared to US awards shows where we get so much fraud. I wonder how many series we’ll now see submit as mini-series and then go onto be renewed.

    These awards don’t really have precursors as such but recently we’ve had both the Broadcasting Press Guild Award nominations and the Royal Television Society nominations who have both been soft indicators in recent years.

    Making an appearance at both:
    -Thandie Newton (Best Actress, Line of Duty)
    -Sean Bean (Best Actor, Broken)
    -The Crown (Best Drama Series/Online Streaming)
    -End of the Fucking World (Best Drama Series/Online Streaming)
    -The State (Best Miniseries/Drama Series)
    -Three Girls (Best Miniseries/Drama Series)

    Even this is not a guarantee though. Just last year, Line of Duty hit both and then missed BAFTA in series. Generally though between the two, you do tend to see about 1/2 to 3/4 of the eventual BAFTA nominees.

    CRAFT NOMINATIONS ARE OUT

    The Crown leads with 7 – same number as it got last year but with a sound nomination instead of a directing one.

    Something I am wondering about from these is how Game of Thrones has ended up nominated for a few. I was fairly sure international series were ineligible and a quick google tells me it’s never been nominated for any before. Either there has been a rule change allowing international series to submit in the other categories (imagine the shake-up if this is applied to the acting categories) or Game of Thrones has become eligible as a British series in which case we could see it land in major categories in two weeks time.

    I’m kind of rooting for a Black Mirror sweep for now because of what a genius Charlie Brooker clearly is. Considering how well “USS Callister” seemed to do at some of the guilds, I wonder if the Bafta TV Writing nod being for “Hang The DJ” means that episode (No wait, “TV Movie” LOL) will be the Emmy Writing submission for the show. Perhaps Callister sweeps the Emmy tech categories it won’t compete with Game of Thrones in while the DJ love story wins TV Movie and Writing just like last season’s love story “San Junipero,” which won those 2 Emmy categories last year.

    Good to see The Crown has made a great showing. Hoping that Kirby and Foy 2.0 happens as well as a nomination for Smith’s great work.

    Game of Thrones gets in for costumes and production design but misses visual effects?
