    Here is the official announcement

    Following the latest government advice on coronavirus (COVID-19), we regret to announce that the British Academy Television Craft Awards and Virgin Media British Academy Television Awards, originally scheduled for 26 April and 17 May respectively, will be postponed until later in the year. The announcement of the nominations, scheduled for next Thursday 26 March, will also be postponed until closer to the ceremony. We’re working with all our partners to explore options for new dates and we hope to be in a position to confirm them in the coming weeks.

    We are continually monitoring the situation ​to ensure we are prepared for the challenges we may face in the coming weeks and months. We are closely following the advice of the World Health Organisation, NHS and GOV UK/Public Health England, and the safety of our members, guests and staff remains our top priority.”

    Think this will bode well for Killing Eve as its third season would have aired prior to the ceremony.

    I don’t understand the point in delaying the nominations but whatever.

    Maybe the jury hasn’t voted yet? I don’t know

    Hang on so if the BAFTAs are delayed this year then what’s the point of keeping them later in the year.

    They should just permanently move to February to coincide with the film awards.

    They can’t do them both in the same ceremony

    I miswrote. I didn’t mean in the same ceremony but I meant hold them around a similar time (which is what they did before 2001).

    Part of me wishes for that scenario part of me wants them to host the BAFTAs in the late Summer of this year and continue with the May slot because apart from HBO and FX limited series contenders and the odd Netflix comedy nominees, that month just generally seems to boring in television.

    Where do you reckon things stand with these awards now? I wish they had already announced the nominees and then just read out the winners a’la the 2008 Golden Globes.
