    Gosh it was so infuriating when she got snubbed for The Virtues when she was better than the entire lineup.

    I actually preferred Helen Behan to her in The Virtues, but she deserved a nod full stop. Still not over that series going home BAFTA-less.

    I’m hoping that My Name is Lizzie turns out well given the subject matter.

    Sorry to hijack the 20/21 thread again but the Jimmy McGovern drama Time has wrapped filming. Expect that and stars Sean Bean and Stephen Graham to be in contention for the 2022 BAFTAs.

    Separate note but I feel quite confident after watching the first episode of Finding Alice that it’s not going to be a big contender. I wouldn’t be surprised if Keeley Hawes got into Actress though because I can see her performance making it to the longlist and impressing the jury.

    It’s a Sin on the other hand looks like it might be a massive contender next year. So excited for it because I will always watch anything Russell T. Davies writes and I am slightly biased towards Lydia West because she’s related to an old and close friend haha.

    I’ve noticed some people aren’t that keen on Finding Alice so far, but I’m definitely looking forward to seeing It’s a Sin.

    Did you watch The Pembrokeshire Murders? I enjoyed it though it will probably get lost amongst all the Mini-Series candidates this year. Keith Allen was certainly nomination-worthy for his sinister turn.

    The problem with Finding Alice is that it doesn’t know what it is trying to be. Hawes is excellent as always and her role seems very baity so I can see her slip in but in spite of her being excellent in her scenes with Lumley and Havers (who were both excellent too) it felt like they were in a different programme. Hawes seemed like she was in a serious drama whilst Lumley and Havers were in a family comedy. I can see it get a few craft nods though but at times the show felt like it was a production put on by university students.

    Can’t wait for It’s a Sin tonight! Have not seen The Pembrokeshire Murders.

    Call My Agent is picking up buzz in the UK now, so could easily get into International this year.

    Trying not too hijack the 2021 thread again but I think it’s fair to say that It’s a Sin is probably getting at least the Miniseries nomination at the 2022 awards.

    Both Actor and Actress should be interesting here because I don’t think it’s going to necessarily be the two horse race between Coel and Piper and the easy win for Tennant that some of us thought it would be. I think both Corrin and O’Connor are big threats to win under the tape system.

    Although Actress is an incredibly tough one to predict for me. Whilst Coel doesn’t necessarily have a particularly showy tape I anticipate I May Destroy You will be the most nominated show (by quite a wide margin) and that it will sweep like Chernobyl and Killing Eve did and that it doesn’t necessarily matter if Coel doesn’t have a particularly showy tape. Piper has the loudest set of tapes to choose from and Fairytale and Terra Nullius are both winning tapes for Corrin.

    It reminds me of the race between Claire Foy, Thandie Newton and Molly Windsor.

    Yeah I’m expecting it to be between Michaela and Billie.

    It reminds me of the race between Claire Foy, Thandie Newton and Molly Windsor.

    I was rooting for the fourth nominee (Sinéad Keenan) to win that year for Little Boy Blue. Was so gutted when she lost to Molly Windsor (who I hadn’t seen at the time). Great category though.

    Similar to what has been done in the past by @hoster1 for the Emmy season I thought why not do a Gold Derby Personal Awards for the BAFTAs for those of us on here who are avid followers of it all haha.

    The rules for it are the same as the rules for the BAFTA Television awards and here is how you can participate in the poll:

    – The category slots will be the same as the BAFTAs (4 in each series category and 6 in each acting category). Choose your two favourite shows in each of the programme categories and three for each of the acting categories. DM me with your picks by 2 March 2021 at 9AM GMT.

    – Each programme has to have aired between 1 January 2020 and 31 December 2020.

    – There are also categories for Writing and Direction. Each category will have 6 slots and only productions eligible for the acting categories are eligible.

    – You don’t have to fill out answers for each category but it would be preferable.

    – If you make a mistake with a placement (I can understand there may be some category confusion) I will be on hand to help you place the performer in the correct category.

    To clarify these are each of the categories that will be a part of the inaugural Gold Derby BAFTA Television Choice Awards:

    Best Drama Series (you have 2 voting options and there will be 4 slots)
    Best Mini Series (you have 2 voting options and there will be 4 slots)
    Best TV Movie (you have 2 voting options and there will be 4 slots)
    Best Scripted Comedy (you have 2 voting options and there will be 4 slots)
    Best Comedy and Entertainment Programme** (you have 2 voting options and there will be 4 slots)
    Best Documentary Programme (you have 2 voting options and there will be 4 slots)
    Best International Programme (you have 2 voting options and there will be 4 slots)
    Best Moment of the Year* (you have 3 voting options and there will be 6 slots)
    Best Actress in a Leading Role (you have 3 voting options and there will be 46 slots)
    Best Actor in a Leading Role (you have 3 voting options and there will be 6 slots)
    Best S. Actress in a Leading Role (you have 3 voting options and there will be 6 slots)
    Best S. Actor in a Leading Role (you have 3 voting options and there will be 6 slots)
    Best Writing (Comedy) (you have 3 voting options and there will be 6 slots)
    Best Writing (Drama) (you have 3 voting options and there will be 6 slots)
    Best Direction (Fiction) (you have 3 voting options and there will be 6 slots)
    Best Ensemble* (you have 3 voting options and there will be 6 slots)

    *Both international and British productions are eligible in this category.
    **Reality Competition programmes like The Great British Bake Off are also eligible here.

    The Drama Series race is an interesting one too because The Crown has lost so many times that I am starting to question whether it can win this time round but it is having such a strong resurgence with awards bodies left, right and centre and this season finally has a strong set of tapes that it can ride itself to a win for. But then I Hate Suzie feels like Patrick Melrose in the sense that the continuation of the show’s arc through various stylistic choices gives it a strength in both the series race and actress race.

    I feel strangely confident ruling everything else out for the Drama Series award?

    I’m glad I watched Des before filling out my personal ballot, because Tennant is going straight to the top of my list. He was phenomenal.
