BAFTA have announced their nominations for this year’s TV Awards!

Ahead of the ceremony in London later this spring, 2023’s shortlist sees hospital drama This Is Going To Hurt and Martin Freeman’s The Responder up for the most awards, with six each.

Several British period dramas have been nominated, with nods for A Spy Among Friends, Imelda Staunton and Salim Daw in The Crown, Chaske Spencer in The English, Maxine Peake for Anne, and Cillian Murphy in the final season of Peaky Blinders.

Many of our other favourite actors are on the list too, including Sarah Lancashire, Lesley Manville, Fiona Shaw, Taron Egerton, Ben Whishaw, Daniel Radcliffe, and Kate Winslet.

We’re also very happy to see Derry Girls and Ghosts in the running for wins too!
