La!February 19, 2021 at 10:18 am #1204050107
Had a feeling it would happen, very pleased with that.
At least we can officially say that I Hate Suzie is competing as a ‘Drama Series’ at BAFTA.February 18, 2021 at 1:02 pm #1204048636
Both of the last two winners in Actress at BPG won at BAFTA.
Is Michaela officially the frontrunner?
I’d say so and I expect her to win. However, I still think Billie will be her biggest challenger.
I actually didn’t realise that the TV BAFTAs had a terrible record with non-white winners in Best Actress. Only Georgina Campbell (Murdered By My Boyfriend) has prevailed in this category since the awards started in 1955!February 9, 2021 at 11:08 am #1204033201
1. ‘(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again’ from Rocketman
2. ‘Skyfall’ from Skyfall
3. ‘Shallow’ from A Star is Born
4. ‘Remember Me’ from Coco
5. ‘Glory’ from Selma
6. ‘City of Stars’ from La La Land
7. ‘We Belong Together’ from Toy Story 3
8. ‘Let It Go’ from Frozen (can’t really stand the song, wish “Happy” or “Moon Song” had won that year)
9. ‘Man or Muppet’ from The Muppets (not even the third best song from the film)
10. ‘Writing’s on the Wall’ from SpectreFebruary 4, 2021 at 11:14 am #1204022343
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.February 3, 2021 at 8:25 am #1204017421
Jodie!February 1, 2021 at 3:12 am #1204012023
Happy for Sandra but bleh to the Jodie snub….January 25, 2021 at 8:05 am #1204000406
Absolutely loved this series, Lydia West was the MVP for me overall.
It’s so annoying having to wait over a year for the BAFTA TV nominations to be announced. Hopefully this is one of the leading contenders!January 20, 2021 at 7:53 am #1203992997
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.January 18, 2021 at 9:55 am #1203989746
No Jodie no party :-/January 9, 2021 at 3:22 am #1203971297
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.January 8, 2021 at 3:10 am #1203968887
If they’re eligible underestimate both Minari and <i>Promising Young Woman </i>in Best Film at your own peril. The former just had a screening and Q&A with Yeun and Chung for BAFTA members that got raves and Universal have been sending out screener after screener of <i>Promising Young Woman</i> to BAFTA members. My colleague who is a BAFTA member said that both films are getting a lot of focus right now.
Ma Rainey, <i>Chicago</i> 7, Pieces of a Woman and Nomadland have also been getting a lot of buzz. Mank and Hillbilly Elegy on the other hand…
Has your colleague said anything about Maria Bakalova’s chances?January 7, 2021 at 9:24 am #1203967440
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.January 6, 2021 at 2:16 pm #1203966352
Jesus I know she’s a BAFTA and industry darling and she’s phenomenal (I remember seeing her on set on an ITV drama she was in years ago when I was taking all sorts of temp jobs as a runner and I was impressed by her dedication when rehearsing before going on set) but this is too much Suranne. She may have a fourth show in contention if Save Me returns lol.
I certainly don’t think all those performances will be up for awards but I just figured it was best to show her filmography for this year lol.
I know they’ll be another Save Me but that one probably won’t be on till 2022 (a’la Killing Eve).
Jodie, Niamh Algar and Maxine Peake are the three Best Actress contenders that I’ll be rooting for (as things stand).January 6, 2021 at 12:00 pm #1203966193
This sounds so scary yet so brilliant! I am glad Sophie from <i>Peep Show</i> has come so far.
