The historical drama “The Crown,” which chronicles the first years of the reign of Queen Elizabeth II, leads the BAFTA TV Awards nominations for the second year in a row with bids for Best Drama Series, Best Drama Actress (Claire Foy) and Best Drama Supporting Actress (Vanessa Kirby). Not surprisingly, this lavishly produced series, which screened on Netflix on both sides of the pond, won three of its seven races at last month’s BAFTA TV craft awards honoring the best behind-the-scenes artists and professionals; these are equivalent to the Creative Arts Awards at the Emmys.

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. The catch-all drama acting categories pit the players in telefilms, miniseries and series against each other.

Also up for three awards at the main awards is another Netflix title, the anthology series “Black Mirror.” One of its installments, “Hang the DJ,” contends for Best Single Drama while its leading man Joe Cole is up for Best Actor. Jimmi Simpson is nominated for his supporting performance in “USS Callister.” The other Single Drama nominees are ” Against the Law,” “King Charles III” and “Murdered for Being Different.”
