    What is the others been?

    Technically, Killing Eve shouldn’t have been nominated for anything outside of International last year. They made an exception just for it to be nominated elsewhere, and it went on to win the lions share.

    Game of Thrones is the big one. That’s been doing it for a few years.

    I just cannot fathom how Years and Years has been completely shut out,not even up for Best Writing for Davies yet Armstrong is there for Succession.Who in their right mind could do this?Also how could Confession and Victim sneak in Miniseries while Years and Years not.I cannot put up with this at all!!!!

    I love both Armstrong’s writing in Succession and Davies’s in Years and Years but if Succession wasn’t eligible for any other categories above the line it shouldn’t have been nominated here.

    To be fair both A Confession and The Victim were quite good.

    I feel The Capture or His Dark Materials should have been in Best Drama instead of The Crown…His Dark Materials is not even given enough nods in crafts..The Capture deserved more as well…

    I agree. Ruth Wilson should have been in Supporting Actress.

    Line of Duty should have atleast made it in Writing with Mercurio…

    No. It only deserved to get into writing for series 2 (which it was nominated for writing for) and series 3. If even series 4 couldn’t get in then series 5 shouldn’t have.

    Graham should have been double nominated though.

    I am not very fond of The Crown’s latest season but I thought it was still better than that lousy adaptation of Pullman’s novel(s).

    Last year Benedict Cumberbatch won after an ‘overdue’ narrative came into play, despite many people agreed that Hugh Grant was more deserving for his performance.

    Cumberbatch won because he had the baitiest tape imaginable.

    Yup. Narratives are totally irrelevant here.

    Adrian Johnston (Giri/Haji) is nominated for Best Original Music, but it’s impossbile to find his score online.

    The music on this show is spectacular, so here is hoping this nom, will finally motivate someone to release it.

    I find it interesting that Killing Eve got snubbed in Sound (which it won last year) but still got in for Editing (which it is actually very deserving of the win but lost last year). Sometimes BAFTA can be so random.

    I don’t think Comer has a chance at repeating because of how BAFTA history in this category does work. However I wonder if she does upset for the win could we see her stick around as a perennial BAFTA nominee for the same performance like Benedict Cumberbatch did all those years for Sherlock? I think with BAFTA it is possible but it is unpredictable considering how competitive this Lead Actress category is becoming every year and that next year she will have Masali Baduza (Noughts and Crosses), Cush Jumbo (Deadwater Fell), Sian Clifford (Quiz), Naomie Harris (The Third Day), Michaela Coel (I May Destroy You), Daisy Edgar-Jones (Normal People), Maxine Peake (Hillsborough), Ann Marie-Duff (The Salisbury Poisonings), Sophie Rundle (The Nest) and herself (Talking Heads) to face off against.

    I find that more than any other awards BAFTA TV droops it favourites quickly, and that is why I think Comer is quite confidently in fourth. Killing Eve season 2, was a huge moment in Britain which season 3 wasn’t. I mean arguably Quiz, Normal People and The Nest were all bigger than KE this spring. Therefore I think this is probably they will recognise Comer, as KE hasn’t stayed popular similar Sherlock, which is how Benedict Cumberbatch could keep his nominations.

    I think Comer is third just because I think Gentleman Jack and Jones’ performance in it are too sprightly to win with any submission

    I would agree Quiz and Normal People were way bigger than Killing Eve this spring in the UK. I wouldn’t go so far to say The Nest was too though.

    Has anyone been watching any of the contenders since the nominations landed? I’m halfway through Giri/Haji which is so GOOD. Takehiro Hira and Will Sharpe are definitely worthy of their nods so far.

    I watched it just before the noms announcement. It was always on my radar because of japanese actors. It’s low key my fave show of 2020.

    Not perfect by any means, but who needs perfect shows!? I just admire the show’s commitment to the characters, how it’s not afraid to be slow, to take time. But patience pays off – emotional beats that the show throws at you, hit you really hard, because you care about those characters.

    I also love how they write supporting characters: take for example the lead character’s wife. You would think you are dealing with some stereoptype or irritating “TV wife”, and then boom, by the time you watch the final episode she is your favorite character.

    So yeah, I loved it. I hope they win.
